Instructions

For the Salmon:

  • Preheat to 425F.
  • To prep the marinade, smash the garlic and remove skin. Mince and set aside.
  • Chop and deseed the Thai chilies. Be very careful! You can even wear gloves for this part.
  • In a large bowl, add brown sugar, soy sauce, mirin, sesame oil, ginger, miso, chopped chili and garlic.

  • Cut up some fresh thyme. Add thyme, pinch of salt and champagne vinegar.
  • Add the top and shake.
  • Chop the rest of the blackberries into halves. Thinly slice radishes.

Notes

  • If you like a bit of extra bite go ahead and slice some red onion thinly then let it soak in your vinaigrette for a bit. They'll pickle and be delicious!
  • Keep a close eye on the glazed salmon in the oven as it will caramelize and burn pretty fast. I recommend placing the thin side of the fish toward the door as it is a bit cooler there.
  • If you want to turn the spice up add more or switch to habañeros which are hotter.
  • Pretty much any kind of berries will work for the salad.
  • If you're not a fan of peppery arugula you could use baby spinach or mixed salad leaves.
  • Feel free to add in any extra veggies to taste.
