Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Salmon en papillote with dill-yogurt sauce

    • mharriman on November 02, 2017

      Steaming food on parchment isn’t my favorite way to prepare food because it’s usually bland, but this recipe looked tasty, so I gave it a try. The dill- yogurt sauce definitely makes the steamed salmon pop with flavor. It was pretty tasty, easy to put together, and easy to cook since it’s baked in the oven. I didn’t really get why you’re supposed to cut a heart out of parchment for each entree. Next time I would just cut a rectangle and fold the edges for each piece. I served this with orzo and it was a great pairing.

  • Crab cakes with roasted vegetables and tangy butter sauce

    • mharriman on August 26, 2017

      I was interested in the crab cake recipe only and found it very easy to put together and pan fry. The consistency is excellent- crab is substantial; the red onion/ parsley/ Old Bay seasoning / Dijon mustard/ mustard/ eggs /bread crumb filling didn't overtake the crab and enhanced the cake. After 30 minutes in fridge, the mixture was very easy to put into patty cakes that didn't fall apart. Served this with roasted red potatoes and coleslaw - recipes from the same cookbook. Made crab cake according to directions and came out well.

  • Buttermilk oven-fried chicken with coleslaw

    • mharriman on September 09, 2017

      My favorite oven fried chicken recipe. I bake the chicken on a jelly roll pan rather than in the same frying pan it's browned in. I also love the coleslaw recipe that's on the same page. It has enough mayo in it to be lightly creamy but not so much that it's overpowering. I add cut up a Grammy Smith apples to the slaw mix which creates a nice crunchy texture. Pairs well with corn on the cob or baked beans for a picnic inside or outside.
