Tonight was the unveiling of the salmon and the preparation of my second batch of dried mushrooms. I have learned some truths.
1. I love cured salmon. I prepared made a carpaccio of sorts with lemon, capers, olive oil and some zest. I thought it was freaking fabulous.
2. The recipe I used was a little to heavy on the salt for Roy’s tastes.
(Sadly I have no illustrations for a boyfriend guzzling tea.)
3. My older cat does not like it, but my smaller cat will do acrobatic feats for cured salmon.
4. I will never buy dried mushrooms again. They are stupid and I hate them… Rather, they did not meet my lofty expectations. I think I will stick with the fresh ones. Reconstituting them is a pain in the ass.
