Soy Kaffir and Lime Grilled Salmon
I have been wanting to find a piece of black or gray slate tile or server for a while now. I just love the texture and the way it is unstructured similar to the characteristics of wood. I had seen one in town a couple of weeks back but thought nah I would wait a little. But I went last week and do you think I could find it or even remember where I may have seen it? I was shopping with a friend and said oh well I must just not meant to buy it right now. And blow me down this morning I was having my cup of tea in bed and a garage sale notification came up which was just around the corner and it was arranged by a house stylist and she was clearing out a lot of her items.
So I managed to pick up two small slate servers for $2 each. BARGAIN! So yes my inspiration was peaked and I had been wanting to make up one of my favourite marinades/syrups by Simply Ming cookbook and the authors of Blue Ginger for a while now but had no real reason to. The Soy – Kaffir Lime syrup is simply divine and better yet it calls for me to use my Kaffir lime tree and some of my Tahitian limes.If you have read my other food safaris you will know I love to use parts of our garden as it seems to make the experience so much more rewarding.
So I wanted to have a clean serving of rice so oiled my egg rings and pushed in tightly the cooked rice and then began to make the syrup.
