Well, Katrina, I definitely do not qualify as a beginner cook. I began cooking for my family, out of necessity, when I was 8-years-old, which means I have been cooking for over 57 years.
Lots of time for trial and error and plenty of experience gained along the way. I'm still learning and do, much to my chagrin, occasionally produce something I think is, at best, mediocre. The happy thing, though, is that unless they're soooooo awful, we can eat our mistakes.
We like salmon in our household and would be interested in having you share that dish.
Best wishes and "bon appetit!"
