Supper. I had no interest in cooking, given the dreadful day we have had. However, I forced myself to look around and get creative with ingredients on hand.
I started by cutting the zest from an orange and chopping it.
Into a small sauce pan with a clove of garlic and cream to reduce
A reader in Alaska sent me, quite a while ago, a jar of smoked salmon.
So, since it is Friday and I am avoiding meat…
I blended a shot of Grand Marnier into the cream and orange zest and then stirred in elicoidali.
Elicoidali with smoked salmon and orange cream. Freshly ground pepper.
Smoky and sweet and bitter and fishy and orangy and peppery.
Green salad with vinegrette to follow.
Different, easy, fast, with stuff sitting around.
Now that I have done this once, I think I can do it better the next time.
