Well, quite a pale colored dish. Tasted a lot better than it looked. The grey mushrooms don't help either. The salmon went from a brilliant orangey-red color to a....well, salmon color, as soon as it hit the heat. Maybe next time I should add a bit of red pepper or something to give it more color.

Yep, that sounds delightful!

Honest opinion?

Taste is the most important thing.

But if you can make it look a little bit good too? ]]

Actually, nutrition is the most important thing, but I am assuming this is about people who have a choice.

All the Creole/Cajun talk on DC lately made me hungry, so I made up a batch of shrimp etoufee. Unfortunately, I got a little too adventurous and, in addition to the shrimp, tossed in some crabmeat that was in the freezer. I should have given it the sniff test first, because it had a decidedly fishy flavor. We muddled through dinner, but it wasn't very good.

Tonight's dinner on the "Andy Eats Whatever He Wants" menu was Beef Stroganov. It was really good.

Nice pics, bucky and Rock! Great sounding dinners here this evening.

I had a fish taco with a side of sliced avocado, sprinkled with fresh lime juice. I'm no nutritionist, but I agree with MadCook that the 'good stuff' in avocados outweigh the fat they contain. I'll keep eating them.
