I marked this day off my calendar as Iron Chef day. Iron Chef boy vs the challenger (cousin). Taking place in kitchen stadium (smaller version). With the secret ingredient being salmon (2 courses) and 1 hour (in actuality it was 1.45 mins), judges (14 of us) the score (that never really happened). We need more of events like these!!!! (And I’m not even drunk)
Salmon Poke. This was MY idea! Though.. Iron Chef boy made this dish! 8.5/10
Challenger came up with salmon dumplings, all made from scratch! From scratch! I love saying that. With the soya sauce = bomb. 9/10
Contestant made a baked salmon! With spinach! 9/10
Iron Chef made poached salmon in a creamy sauce. Omfg, too delish. 10/10
During the intense cook off.
“Scoring” the final product. Yes, that is a plastic plate. Iron chef at your finest.
mmhmmm nothing like a good ol tuxedo cake to end the night.
ps, I’m going to steal that recipe for the salmon poke. (Recipe coming soon)
