From the Test Kitchen

Chefs! We’re bringing you a series of recipes designed with ease of cooking and cleanup in mind, but without sacrificing the incredible flavors you’ve come to expect from a classic Blue Apron meal. Yuzu kosho is a beloved Japanese condiment made from fermented chiles, salt, and the juice and zest from yuzu—a tart, fragrant citrus fruit grown in East Asia. In this dish, we're mixing it with rich mayo as a topper for salmon fillets to help them stay deliciously moist as they bake in the oven.
