French Fridays with Dorie - Salmon with Basil Tapenade
Friday, July 20, 2012
This has not been my week. Clearly. I can see it, you can see it, even my cat can see it - by the way it has not been her week either, after a visit to the vet, two shots in the backside, complete four paw pedicure and a bath, I am pretty sure she is devising a plan to chock me in my sleep !!
In the course of making this dish I broke a pan and a plate, spilled half of the tapenade on the floor and overcooked burned the salmon. Dorie's recipe was very good. The mess in my kitchen is definitely not her fault. I blame my "Jabba the Hut Ego" who's been pretty active this past week, disorganising my thoughts, paralysing my brain and my hands!
For me cooking is completely in sync with my emotions. You can taste my joy in a sweet (always sugar free) cocoa mousse and my confusion in a half burned roasted salmon like this one today...
