Everybody knows that salmon swim upstream to spawn. Well, even if you didn’t know it, it’s important that the salmon knows it. Did you know that they usually die after their upstream “swim and spawn”? When I was a kid I used to go every Sunday to my school’s “Swim and Gym”, but I’m still here. I guess that wasn’t as hard.
The salmon had to undergo a gargantuan task so that we can enjoy the benefits of their labor (seems rather selfish of us, doesn’t it?). Luckily, we do not have to undergo any Herculean effort to enjoy the results of this simple, simple recipe, one of the easiest you will ever find.
