Salmon & Peas

This time they go together :) And it's all about presentation here!


I made Giada's Salmon w/Pea Puree. It sits in a lemon broth, which, to be honest, I had no idea if i was supposed to eat it or drink it or what! Good thing i didn't have any guests :) I sopped up some of the broth with some bread, but there was alot there so I didn't finish it. I left out the mint, as I didn't have any. My salmon seemed quite large, so I split it in half and made half of the puree and broth. The broth and pea puree both got made ahead, so all I had to do was to saute the salmon, warm up the broth, and serve! This was a really great dish, and I was especially impressed by the pea puree, very yummy! And my second serving was still good heated up the next day, so that was nice, too.

This looks great - I made a salmon and pea pasta dish from Everyday Food once, it's a good flavor combination.

I need to explore these Giada recipes. You always make them look so good.

I really like that you take the time to prepare and present delicious meals like this all for yourself. I like to cook fancy meals for myself too, but my presentation isn't nearly as pretty.
