salmon belly

so i got a pack of salmon belly today because it looked alluring to me...
i'm not really sure what to do with them, it looks fatty, thus pretty cute, so i want to eat it!
i was thinking about broiling them with some korean BBQ style glaze
honey, lemon juice, ginger mash?

  1. Sashimi style.....quick sear or encrusted with sesame seeds.

    Chinese Style.....gently steamed with fine julienne slivers of green onion and ginger with soy sauce. You can also do this in foil or parchment paper.

    1. Is this from 99Ranch? The pieces will all have skin. Depending on the batch, some will have fins. And yes, it is fatty, but that is part of the lure of this cut. Most likely it's in long strips. I often cut them into shorter lengths for ease of handling.

      I haven't tried it, but broiling with a glaze should work fine. Or the simplest - oven 'grilled' in a hot iron skillet. It's rich enough that it does not need a lot of seasoning. The pieces can even be cooked in a soup, such as udon noodles.

      1. Good in a lot of things.

        Be forewarned: Even in a deboned fish there often are bones.

        1. Ahh salmon belly. The cooks treat
