Dinner in Paradise... Debbie whipped up a magnificent meal for us this afternoon. The main course was Ora King Salmon, recently available in our grocery store. Debbie baked it in a mayonnaise, dill, and Peppadew Pepper sauce, and the result was spectacularly good. We first ran into those Peppadew Peppers on a pizza at Jack's, and fell in love with them there. The mild versions really are mild; I'm practically allergic to hot spicy foods, but I love these things.
Along with the glorious salmon, we had carrots cooked in balsamic vinegar and a little brown sugar. Very nice, they were. And finally we had rice, but rice ever so much better than we usually make it, by traditional stove top methods. On the strong recommendation of Megan McArdle, we bought an automatic rice cooker – and this afternoon was our first attempt to use it. That first try produced two (dry) cups of rice cooked to perfection, fluffy and light and delicious. Also, better than anything we've ever cooked ourselves on the stove top.
What a meal!
