"Soy sauce is really a multi-purpose seasoning."
-Martin Yan

The refrigerator light goes on...

Martin Yan is right. Soy sauce is a great all-purpose sauce with saltiness and umami that complements recipes. It does take some restraint and using just a bit goes a long way.

Miso is the same way. It contains a lot of salt but a special tangy umami flavor and takes only a bit to have a major impact on a dish. Pair with big flavors like salmon, beef and pork for a great meal.

I have a lot of folks write in and ask about all the different choices in the market and which is best for their recipes.

When you step up to the fish counter the salmon you find won't necessarily be clearly labeled. You can, however, fairly easily tell a lot about it. Firstly, salmon is divided into two broad categories: Atlantic and Pacific. Salmon
