Neither of the recipes I followed came out that great. My miso sauce burned almost immediately, I guess my broiler is hotter or more shallow than theirs, and I had to finish it off in the oven. Also the salmon was a bit too fishy tasting for me, but that might have been a freshness issue.
I figured you can never go wrong with Ina Garten, I do love her so. Her roasted brussels sprouts were fine, but not as delicious as I had hoped. I usually braise them with bit of butter and soy sauce, and I like them better that way.
All in all, the meal was much like the Patriots game, we went into it with high hopes and ended up disappointed. Don’t even ask about how Shane is doing.
