Chicken and Ginger Clay Pot

Tasty Stuff! I used boneless thighs I had in the Freezer and then 2 breasts, and it came out great. The star anise gave it just the right amount of "what's that?" I will likely make this again.

Salmon .. take it to the next level

This one is more of a "no recipe" recipe, but I really like to make a marinade for my salmon as follows:

Soy Sauce (about 3 Tbsp or so)
Brown Sugar (about 1/4 cup)
Sriracha sauce (just enough to make it hot)
Little Bit of Black pepper
Olive oil
Juice of 1 lime
a few dashes Agosturra Bitters (yah, you can use them in cooking)
Ginger (powdered or fresh works)
Couple garlic cloves chopped up
A few dashes of sesame oil (if you have it)

You want it to taste a little asian-y, and hit all four tastes (sweet, sour, salty, bitter) and also a little spicy.

Marinade for about an hour or 2, and then grill, starting skin-side down, and then flip if needed. It's dang tasty.

Hope that helps!

My Beer Haul- An unabashed, unfrugal, shameless middle finger salute to the current global economy

Nice Haul!

I gotta say the Avatar from Elysian is a tasty beer, one of the good go-to beers from their brewery to be sure.
