She's pretty predictable. Her salmon is paired with buttered penne. I didn't want that.
Since I'd been planning on shrimp with pineapple before her text, I figured I'd just try the pineapple on the salmon. (Confession: I'm not really a fan of the taste of plain salmon.)
But when I opened the freezer, I saw the nearly empty bag of frozen blueberries. I've been craving blueberries.
And then there was that bag of frozen peaches I bought because I was reading Linda Goodnight's Honey Ridge series set at the Peach Orchard Inn (And thus was craving all things peaches).
|(Quick plug for these books because I've been loving this series SO much.)|
See how easily I get distracted? That's because I'd rather be reading than cooking.
But back to dinner -
I decided to toss all three fruits together with a smidgen of water and simmer.
Brilliant idea if I do say so myself!
I'd made rice for my husband's cod (Not enough of that for daughter.) so I placed rice on the plate, sat the poached salmon on top, and drowned the whole thing in warm fruit sauce.
Just the thing for this under-the-weather author! The warm fruit was soothing to my throat and the mix blended perfectly with the salmon.
I will definitely make this again!
