I was asked by one of my co-workers, Jen, last week to make a dish either with chicken or salmon with roasted potatoes for a side. I didn't know at first which I wanted to do, but when I was at Mothers Market just off 109th street in Edmonton I saw exactly what I wanted to make.
There is a vendor there, Sgambaro's, where they sell beautiful Atlantic salmon along with some great italian products such as extra virgin olive oils that have a wonderful flavor of the terrain they come from. Some of their specialties are salmon sausage and an amazing smoked salmon. We would definitely recommend trying their products I have not ever been disappointed. One of the best tasting salmons I have had.
The thing I find with salmon is not to overcook it, because it becomes very dry and chewy. This piece was about 1 inch thick so about 6 minutes on each side (about 10 minutes in total) at around 385°F. Also, take a fork, the layers should fall apart easily, kind of like canned chunky tuna. If this is done properly the salmon will melt in your mouth with smooth amazing taste. The potatoes and lettuce I purchased from the Old Strathcona Farmers market. I can't rave enough about the produce there.
Tonight's dish is Herbed dill salmon on a bed of lettuce and a side of roasted paprika potatoes.
Now it is time to sit down and taste the fruits of your labor, this fantastic main dish, Herb Dill Salmon, with a side of delicious Roasted Paprika Potatoes.
Savor it, you deserve it.Print
