We had some friends over the other night for dinner and boardgames,
and I had a first.
While broiling my salmon,
something amazing happened.
It lit ON FIRE.
I was standing there, in my kitchen,
getting ready to take a peek at the fish
when flames began to whip about the baking pan.
First thought: hmmmm.
Second thought: oh dear... !?!?!?!
Then, to my own surprise, I nonchalantly opened the oven door,
held the flaming pan at arm's length (with my oven mitt, of course),
and set it upon the stove.
The flames went out within seconds.
And my salmon was miraculously cooked to perfection
with only the slightest touch of crispiness on the edges
and succulent flaky meat inside.
It was like I MEANT to do it.
So there you go, guys.
I made flame-broiled salmon like a boss.*
*Disclaimer: couldn't do it again if I tried.
