We cook salmon once in a while. It's not in heavy rotation, but now and then we get the urge.
We have a bunch of ways to cook salmon. But for some reason, whenever I marinate a salmon fillet (in miso, or in this case, peanut butter), Cranky manages to deliver blackened fish. Bleh.
I don't complain; if I'm not personally manning the stove I've got no right to carp. I just thought he was being careless. It is way too easy to burn a marinade.
But this time I asked him. "Why the black spots?"
Him: "I thought it looked cool!"
He did it on purpose.
(Don't worry; we have a pre-nup.)
