Portly Cooks | Salmon and Stilton Rolls

I’m not always a massive fan of salmon, I will eat it forever as sashimi but when it’s cooked I have to have things to disguise the taste a little bit. Of course you can use any cheese you like or even leave it out altogether. 250g Salmon (skinless) 1 packet Ready Rolled Puff Pastry…

Portly Cooks | Cheats Sushi

Here is another way to use your ice cube tray… 1/3 Cup Sushi Rice 2/3 Cups Water Fish of your choice (I used; Scallop, Yellow Fin Tuna and Salmon) 4 caps full Mirin This one is all about the rice, you need to wash it.  Wash it thoroughly, like 3 or 4 times, until the…

Portly Cooks | Salmon Jerky

Portly Cooks | Teriyaki Salmon

This might be better for when you have a little bit of time. It is a little bit of a faff but believe me it is worth it! I first tried Teriyaki in a Mall in The US of all places. I sat in a food court and devoured Teriyaki Chicken and noodles, since then…

Portly Cooks |Soy & Salmon Bites

I don’t like salmon. Well let me explain that, I don’t like cooked ‘normal’ salmon, if you know what I mean.  I love smoked salmon and will eat salmon raw until I feel ill cooked fresh salmon though, not for me. So in a bid to try and start eating it again and appeal to…

Portly Cooks | Tuna & Salmon Sashimi

The things we crave are weird sometimes; I am late to the game when it comes to sushi and sashimi. I only started eating it when I went to university. Now though it’s up there with some of my favourite foods and, if you’re lucky and have a decent fishmonger near you, you can make…

Portly Eats @ Teri-Aki, Cambridge @teriakicamb
