Barcelona, October 26th
Ladies ! I hope you are all well.
Things have been ok here in Barcelona, the weather is beautiful, Norah is growing up so fast and Thomas and I have been enjoying the routine. We are getting into a good rhythm now between Norah starting the creche and me getting used to working again, it has been pretty nice 🙂
So for this recipe, I tried it one night when I really felt like a change. We had salmon at our disposal but I didnt feel like cooking it the usual way, which is in a pan. First, because it is kind of boring, and second, because the kitchen would smell for the following week. I hate that !
So I went online searching for an original recipe that was easy and with not too many weird ingredients as all grocery stores were closed.
I came across this one, I have to admit I was not really excited about it at first, and I even thought the mix of ingredients was a bit weird… But I was intrigued!
Well, I am so happy I took the chance as Thomas thought this was one of the best recipes I have ever made… wow! So I made it last week when our friends Ben and Katie visited… They really liked it too (or they are very good liars! hehe)
So here are the ingredients for 4 people:
4 nice big salmon fillets
8 tablespoons of cream (I used diet cream)
4 teaspoons of curry
4 tablespoons of honey
Spring Onions (depends on the size, 4-8)
Ginger Powder (I replaced it with real ginger, chopped)
Cook the spring onions in a pan, with a bit of butter. Add warm water, cook until they become soft. Set aside.
In a bowl, mix the cream, curry, ginger, and honey.
Then in foil paper, put first the salmon, then the sauce, and then the caramelized onions.
Close the foil paper to make a papillotte, and in the oven it goes.
The 4 papillotes have to cook for about 20 mn.
It’s ready! You can serve it with whatever side dish you like.
I served it with Jan’s amazing mashed potatoes au pesto. Miam 🙂
PS: I am trying to work on the presentation of the vegetables to make them more appetizing for Norah when she is old enough… What do you think?
