180. Seared Salmon with Balsamic Glaze p.290

180. Seared Salmon with Balsamic Glaze p.290

The recipe
Jacques Pépin said it best, if you’re going to fry fish, try to do it at the neighbours’ house. I was working from home the day I made this dish, and my dining companion wasn’t getting back until 9 pm so I decided to make fish for lunch. As regular readers know she’s not [...]

133. Poached Salmon in Aspic p.318

133. Poached Salmon in Aspic p.318

The recipe
I had so much fun making and presenting this, that even if it been inedible, it would have been worth it. Luckily, it tasted quite good. I absolutely knew that I needed an occasion to serve this dish. In honour of the aspic coated days of yore we organized a retro-potluck extravaganza. People brought [...]

122. Smoked Salmon Mousse with Salmon Roe and Crudités p.19

The recipe
I was really looking forward to this recipe, but I didn’t expect to like it at all. I’ve never had a salmon mousse before, and it has a certain reputation. Pop culture uses it to indicate that a character is out of touch, horribly backwards, or disturbingly gross. I suspect many people can’t [...]

96. Salmon Burgers with Spinach and Ginger p.291

The recipe
I rarely make recipes from The Book for lunch, but this was an exception. I happened to be home, and to have a salmon fillet lingering in my fridge, so I decided to go for it. It wasn’t the greatest thing I’d ever tasted, but it certainly wasn’t bad. It’s a simple burger made [...]

86. Roasted Striped Bass with Chive and Sour Cream Sauce p.305

86. Roasted Striped Bass with Chive and Sour Cream Sauce p.305

The recipe. The Book doesn’t call for garlic chive sprouts though.
Finally fish! That one lonely fish dish has been an embarrassment for too long. I hated looking at the stats page and seeing the Fish and Shellfish section averaging just one mushroom. This was a much better dish, and I’m delighted to add it.
The [...]
