Sunday dinner 12/10

So I am in a very good place grocery wise. I have both mussels and salmon. My mussel game is good, have broth, have leeks, we are fine.

What can I do with a nice cut of salmon that is unique? It is snowing and I don't want to leave the house. I have lemons, a shite ton of garlic, but don't want to just throw lemons and garlic at the problem.

I have a decent amount of produce too from the CSA.

Let me hear your dinner, and please give me some suggestions.

TBS (E-F)

Consider cooking it enpapillote. using parchment or foil, make a bed of aromatics and veggies, lay the salmon on top, season and wrap it up fairly tightly making sure the foil does not touch the to of the food. Place in a 400F oven for 20 minutes. Less if you like medium rare salmon.

Yes, I can do this. Foil, no parchement, but I think I can do something close with what I have here.

You can add as much or as little as you want. I typically just do the fish and some aromatics. Starch and veggies are prepared separately. You can add quick cooking veggies as well, like zucchini.

Sunday Brunch - Baby romaine and arugula salad with Caesar dressing; spaghetti, meatball and Italian sausage frittata with red bell pepper, pepperoncini, grated parmigiana cheese, and grandma's sauce; garlic toast, coffee and mimosas

Sunday Dinner - baby romaine and arugula salad with Creamy Italian dressing; fusilli, Italian sausage and meatballs with grandma's sauce; Garlic toast; and a 2015 Hawthorne Grove Pinot Noir

If that's too much Italian for one day (is that even possible?) I can make chicken enchiladas verde with Mexican rice and Charro beans for dinner. The important thing is to get rid of all the blue lids, so I can create more.

TBS, the first thing I thought of is what Andy suggets, foil sealed and bake the salmon with the garlic/ lemon slices. If you have any jalapeno or grated fresh ginger, bonus. Bake it skin side down and the skin should remain in the foil when you remove the salmon. That's a theory, it doesn't always work that way for me LOL.

NEVER go grocery hungry, particularly on a Sunday morning. ;)
