I thought it would be good to talk about mistakes that we have made in cooking so that we can all learn...maybe there are prior posts on this but if so, lets start a new one.
2 that I remember of mine:
I was making Paella with scallops and the recipe said to salt the scallops and let sit-so I did, but it failed to tell me to RINSE the salt off before cooking....now my grown children to this day will not eat Paella.
I was making Tapa (filipino type) and the recipe called for a LOT of soy sauce and let the meat marinate. I failed to add the brown sugar to compensate for all the sauce. We all drank a lot of water with that meal.
Any fun mistakes we can learn from that you CH's have done?
