Hidey Do! I am back in less than a week, as was my intent and plan. Just a quick post today. I MUST share with you cooks out there, a simple, yet ever so delicious recipe that I got from my Mom. Very much a "company" worthy meal too. However, it takes very little time to prepare. All prep can be done ahead.
You know those lovely salmon halves you see at Costco and Sam's? Get one of those. Our family is large, and we are big eaters, so the bigger, the better for us.
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
Remove salmon from package and place onto a large jelly roll pan. Drizzle with olive oil, using clean hands to smear over surface. Lightly salt and pepper. Chop one whole bunch of fresh parsley. One bunch green onions, and one bunch fresh dill. PLEASE don't use dried herbs. This makes all the difference in the world. Mix herbs and pat onto entire surface of fish.
Also Mom's recipe, is this roasted cauliflower. Oh my!!
Clean and cut one head of cauliflower into florets. Mix about 1/4 cup of good Dijon Mustard, with either a little mayo, or non fat greek yogurt. About the same amount, or whatever looks good to you. I also squeezed the juice of one half lemon into this. Salt and pepper, and then drizzle sauce over top. I cooked it on rack just beneath the salmon for same amount of time, and it was perfect.
I made a mixed salad of romaine and baby arugula. Fresh bleu cheese dressing, and shaved some Toscana black pepper crusted cheese on top.
My Mom is a fabulous cook. I get my love of food and cooking from her! We enjoy taking cooking classes, and talking about cooking and restaurants, everywhere we go. Do give this a try, and let me know how you like it.
I ran into my LQS (local quilt shop) this morning. The owner asked me to make a shop sample. So I took home this lovely new fabric by Bonnie & Camille, called Vintage Picnic.
I also bought a bit of fabric to do a couple of project bags with. This fun Spring print.
That's it. I better go sew!!!!
