From Pan to Plate in less than 40 minutes

Today was another one of those days. Back to work from a "stay-cation" , time off that I used to fight off a sinus ailment, it was one of those days when you work nonstop but not on the things you really planned on getting done.  Remedy ? Cook a nice meal for the Queen .

So here is an great dish , fast enough to make, yet complex in flavors .

Braised Salmon Shashito Oil 
Braised Salmon Shashito Oil and Heart of Palm

Preparation Notes: 
Fry your Shashito Peppers in EVOO, remove from pan , reserve the oil.  Use the oil to lightly sautee some thick heart of palm slices and yellow bell peppers along with a some herbs, and a splash of white wine.

Whit this kind of speed I am feel that an audition on Chopped is in order. Won't happen though. They only accept professionals, not dilettants like me.

Salute !

If you do not know, Manhattan's Chinatown  nowadays contently fuses with it's Italian neighbors.  Great combo, isn't it ? I sure do think so.

The plan worked out. So do read on.

Paella Experimentation

There are times that I love to experiment just to kill away the boredom. And I get to play the culinary Guinea Pig. Yummy

Here are some plays on Paella

This was made with Brown Rice, Very different way to cook.  Grouper Filet , who would have thought, was made part of the recipe.
