I absolutely love salmon! Here’s my favorite way to cook this omega-3 rich fish. I pair it with a sweet and savory bulgogi marinade, hence the name – salmon bulgogi. The flavorful marinade works wonderfully with the rich, oily fish. Bulgogi is a marinated meat dish made with thin slices of beef. In the past, I posted a variation made with chicken, dak bulgogi. It’s one of the most popular recipes on my blog, so try it if you haven’t.
The salmon is thinly cut for quick marinating. Buy salmon with skin if you can. The skin helps hold the thin flesh together. Of course, you always have to make sure the fish you buy is fresh. You can cook the salmon any way you want. My favorite way is quick broiling. The high heat cooks the fish very fast while giving a nice char. Just be careful not to overcook.
The marinade is easy to whip up, and the fish cooks very quickly, making this dish a perfect weeknight meal! I served it here with plain rice and sesame broccoli.
