Cooking Salmon and Potatoes


I don't have much experience with cooking salmon so I want to try more dishes with it. Also, I didn't know you were supposed to cook it skin side down first until after my live a few days ago so if you're going to be offended that I cook this meat side down first you should probably go to the next video. My roommate bought some potatoes that she was going to cook but decided not to so she told me to do whatever I wanted to them.


I just added olive oil and salt and put them in the oven for 10 minutes at 450 degrees fahrenheit. Then I chopped up cilantro and garlic for the sauce. I flipped potatoes and don't be lazy like me, use tongs or something else besides your hands. I put them back in for another 10 minutes. I pat the salmon dry and added some salt and pepper to both sides. Then, I made a glaze of honey, soy sauce, and sriracha. In a pan, I heated up some olive oil, garlic, chopped red onions that I needed to get rid of, paprika, cilantro, and black paper. Then, I just tossed in the potatoes. I cooked the salmon for 3 minutes on each side. It did stick on the initial flip so I either had the pan too hot or I didn't wait long enough. I also basted it in some butter. For a final touch I added some toasted sesame seeds and I'm pretty happy on how this turned out. It was nice and juicy and the flavor was good. Definitely need to work on getting the skin crispy though.
