I like to cook salmon. It is delicious, nutritious, and easy to handle compared to other fish.

Here is one Korean-inspired recipe for salmon that is ridiculously easy and fast to prepare. I will call it soybean paste glazed salmon (된장소스 연어구이). Korean soybean paste is not just for Korean soups and stews. It is quite versatile and can be mixed with other kitchen staples to bring an exotic flavor to an ordinary dish, making it extraordinary. That’s my kind of kitchen adventure.
