I’ve been fighting a losing battle against some kind of flu and my family has been eating some really garbagey things from the commissary; frozen pizza and lasagna, hot dogs, macaroni and cheese. They didn’t mind but I did That’s why I dragged myself to the kitchen today, determined to make something that wouldn’t keep me in the kitchen over long, but that would take the frown off my face as I watched them eat.
Salmon with Cauliflower Puree
Boil the florets from a large head of cauliflower in chicken broth for 10 minutes, drain and reserve a little of the broth. Add a lump of butter to the drained cauliflower with salt and pepper, then mash with a little of the reserved broth.
Season 4 salmon fillets with salt and pepper, then put in a ziplock with some olive oil and balsamic or white wine vinegar and marinate for 30 minutes. Sear the salmon in a hot skillet and serve with the cauliflower.
