Whenever Whole Foods has in-season fresh, wild salmon on a special “One Day Only” Sale, be sure to count us in. What do we do? We get all excited, jump in the car, and buy a big slab of fish love.
“What to do with said slab o’salmon“, you might ask? Invent something tasty!
Papa C was in town for the big SEC Championship Weekend. He is the perfect guest for kitchen experimentation, since he will eat all of our inventions! And then, profess to like them all….Thanks, Papa C!
Let’s get cooking.
With rainbow chard in the ‘fridge just waiting to be enjoyed, and lentils (which pair perfectly with salmon) in the pantry, we let the invention begin.
While the lentils cooked in boiling water, we sautéed the rainbow chard with olive oil and minced garlic in our other pan.
Being that the salmon was so fresh, all it needed was a light dusting with mild homemade Cajun seasoning. Out to the grill it goes with Hubby, who keeps a watchful eye so the salmon stays moist and flavorful.
Just like that – no more than 25 minutes of prep and cook time to get this on the table, ready to savor. And when company is in town, why eat out in a noisy restaurant – wouldn’t you rather enjoy each other’s company around the dining table at home?
