Being a foodie, I love to try new recipes and ingredients I never cook with on a regular basis. When I saw the recipe for Sambal Glazed Salmon I was intrigued. Sambal? What the heck is that? Wasabi? Love it! So I pulled out the bag that had everything in it for this meal. You can see it all below.

We had so much fun making a  gourmet meal in our own home with Relished

The recipe card that comes with the dish not only gives you a picture of the final product (I hate recipes without pictures), detailed step by step instructions and a bit of an education. Let me share a bit of it. This dish is Indonesian inspired with lots of traditional ingredients. One of those ingredients is Sambal. Sambal is an Asian condiment typically made from a variety of chili peppers and secondary ingredients such as garlic, ginger, shallot, scallion, sugar, lime juice and rice vinegar or other vinegars. This chili paste pairs well with the sweet and flaky pan seared salmon. The card lays the instructions out so that everything is ready at the right time. It is totally a no brainer and will make meal planning for you really easy.

So how do you think I did compared with the original picture? It turned out just like it was supposed to! The mashed potatoes with wasabi were so fluffy and had just a little kick. I was seriously having a problem with sticking my finger in the bowl over and over and eating them before they got to the plate! The baby bok choy was crisp and light and gave just the right break to the stronger flavors of the salmon and potatoes.

Now I bet you are wondering how Salmon that traveled in box from Chicago to Atlanta in the middle of a snow storm was. I took out the vacuum sealed bag and have to say I was a little nervous. Seafood should not smell “fishy” there are times I go to our local grocery and about gag at the smell and I could not imagine this could be any better. I was totally wrong! I opened up the packet and there was NO SMELL AT ALL! I was shocked and to me that means that Relished is making sure their quality is the best.

So let’s get to this recipe! Since Relished sends you everything pre-measured these measurements are mine, cause trust me it’s so good you’re gonna want to make this again!
