Dinner sometimes consists of what has been stashed in the freezer and in the bottom of the crisper drawer in the fridge, usually something that doesn't look like a science experiment!. Last night about 6:00, I realized a teenager was hungry! But I was in middle of making Biscotti and talking on the phone at the same time.....you know this was a stretch for me, multi-tasking! My dad always told me I couldn't walk and chew gum at the same time!
Throwing in a third task (dinner prep) is just something us mothers do.....I opened the freezer and pulled out a couple of salmon filets. I had a recipe I've been wanting to try and decided tonight is the night!
A little saute'd shallot, a wine reduction, throw in some red curry paste with some coconut milk....fish sauce and lime juice......you know the drill, salty, sweet, sour and spicy and a Thai Salmon en Papillotes was born. Throw in a little brown rice to score brownie points with my trainer and thinly sliced Mange Tout for that vegetable point on the Food Pyramid!
Tasty! Served up on a Gien plate.......even better!
