Jay was over for Sunday dinner – I try to do fish on Sundays as much as possible, mainly because it’s healthy but also because that’s what Jay likes to eat! This salmon was excellent. I loved it, even though it was fully of mushrooms. Shiitakes aren’t so bad because the texture isn’t so chewy and they’re sliced up in this recipe. We also loved the squash. I was looking for something different and was unsure about the grapes, but it actually turned out really nice. The pudding – good, but not thick enough.
Wine: Copain 2004 Kaser “En Bas” Pinot Noir (Anderson Valley, California). Salmon for dinner almost always means Pinot. And I am loving the Copain Pinots. This was our last bottle of the Kaser, but I think I have more on order.
I loved this dish. I consider in close to perfect in nearly every regard.
