Steamed Smothered Salmon

SalmonWhy should you learn How to cook Salmon?

If you are going to cook fish you better know How to cook Salmon. That’s what I decided anyway.  It seems to be a real crowd pleaser and anyone that likes fish seems to love a good Salmon. So why not learn a great way that’s easy to do and not only keeps the fish real moist and succulent, but also has an everlasting burst of flavor from the first bite to the last.

Now, How to Cook Salmon

My preparation for this dish is actually ironic.  A few simple things that are done in this recipe are very commonly used for other recipes similar to this one but I have since found that one of the main things I feel really sets this fish off is considered a huge faux pas amongst many other chefs.  What others consider a No-No I throw down a Hell Yeah when I cover my Salmon with CHEESE!  That’s right I said it…Mozzarella Cheese tops off this Salmon recipe after it’s steamed in a puddle of Onions, Bell Peppers, white wine and butter!  Then I add some fresh chopped Parsley, Bacon bits and then I broil it in the oven for 2 minutes to give it that blow torched burnt marshmallow look before I splash it with Balsamic Vinegar and cold sliced tomatoes.  Once that’s all done, it’s time to serve the best damn fish to my loving wife who can’t ever seem to get enough of me and my finger lickin’ cookin’!  Now if you feel like you can handle all that, then watch my do it yourself video below so you can learn How to cook Salmon yourself!

Anyone that has had a Chicken Lettuce Wrap that didn’t just adore it must’ve been a RETARD! This is usually a dish prepared as an appetizer and is very often reinvented with substitutions of ingredients that were never even intended to be in the original recipe when this dish was created; so the bottom line is, if you are reading this, consider yourself lucky because I personally have made thousands of these from scratch when I worked for the king of Chicken Lettuce wraps.

Curiosity Killed the Chicken Lettuce Wraps

I spent about an hour today reviewing other posts, recipes and YouTube videos just to see how well everyone else was doing when it came to presentation of their recipe and different versions of the Chicken Lettuce Wraps. Needless to say, I wasn’t impressed and I was very disappointed; wrong ingredients, substitutions, bad form in procedures in the cooking and more or less just plain inexperience. Now I understand substitutions because everyone more or less has their own personal tastes and also the lack of availability is a factor with ingredients when it comes to shopping for Chinese in a regular grocery store. But what bothers me the most is people putting name brand resturaunt titles on their recipes even though they’ve clearly changed most everything about the recipe itself. Of course they’re trying to gain a wider audience and more exposure which is fine, but I’m saying you’ve got no business teaching about something you are putting a resturaunt name to if you just don’t have the experience! Have the decency to give it a new name and make it your own or step the “F” off! Everyone has their own version of  Chicken Lettuce Wraps just not the audacity to claim it’s P.F. Changs!


Pizza HutPizza Hut at the Helm?

So the last few months my “Rollero” video I posted with youtube for the Poor Mans Gourmet Kitchen blog was getting allot of hits out of NO WHERE…it was the least watched video I’ve had until one day I was averaging 20 to 30 plus hits a day on the Rollero video alone….nothing I know, but compared to a total of maybe 10 hits for a 3 week period it seemed pretty substantial, it didn’t go viral or anything but it attracted some kind of attention from someone that was getting it out to others or something…maybe another blogger re-posted it, I didn’t know. Then a few weeks ago the video views COMPLETELY stopped…..WHY? That was a weird little run of views out of no where that lasted for a few months to just suddenly halt.

Now let’s jump to this morning when I get the newspaper coupons in the mail today…front and center Pizza Hut is advertising their so called “P’zolo”…..seriously?? My Rollero, their P’zolo…??!!! COME ON!!!!!!


This isn’t a coincidence, and I’m not delusional! It looks to me like my Rollero video, , got studied and passed around the Pizza Hut corporation for a couple of months, because I certainly haven’t been getting mad hits from anything I’ve been doing, and the hits just so happen to stop a few weeks ago just in time for Pizza Hut to introduce their new copycat product of my Rollero, the P’zolo!  Original blog post here:

Pizza HutGotta Love Pizza Hut

I’ve got to admit, it’s quite flattering I suppose, and I’m sure that many skeptics could dismiss this as only quite coincidental but there are a few things here you really have to consider and take into account before you pass judgment.

First, my Rollero is fantastic and the sheer genius of my recipe using pizza dough is uncanny; not to mention that it’s a fun item that people would love to try, so why wouldn’t Pizza Hut want it on their menu?

2nd, obviously my video sparked up some real interest somewhere, and it seems to me that I was getting enough hits to be passed around an entire building of cooperate employees studying the possibilities of making the Rollero one of their products.

3rd, the very name itself, P’zolo; sure, I get it, Calzone/P’Zone, Rollero/P’Zolo.

4th, Look at the damn pics and see for yourself, seriously! Pizza Hut’s P’Zolo is really my Rollero! I rest my case!
