Dr Oz: Chef Mario Batali Bright Orange Crocs
Dr Oz was back with chef and author of “Big American Cookbook” Mario Batali for an Extra 30. Mario weighed in on a popular food hack. But first, Dr Oz revealed his bright orange Crocs that he put on to match Mario and explained he actually wears Crocs in the emergency room. He wears them because they’re rubber, that way in case he has to shock a patient, he won’t get electrocuted. Mario joked that he wears his for the same reason.
Dr Oz: Salmon Cooking Hack
The hack they took a look at was a supposed easy way to cook salmon. First, begin with a second cut of salmon fillet and divide it into 2- to 3-inch sections. Slice each section down the middle, leaving the skin intact. Fold the section in half so the skin sides touch, creating a bone-free salmon steak, while doubling surface area for season. Coat with diced garlic, mixed herbs, black pepper, and sea salt. Grill skin-down first, then flip halfway and cook to desired degree.
Mario explained that it’s a classic idea. If someone orders something well done in the restaurant, they use the butterfly technique to cook it to well down without drying it out. He said it was a “100% homerun” adding that you get more of that crispy, seasoned surface area that he loves.
