My appreciation for quinoa came late. This was one trend I didn’t pay any attention to initially. Quinoa? Ancient grains? Sounds like barley to me. Who cares! That was a mistake. I finally got around to trying it. Hooked. That mildly nutty flavour is a canvas to play with. It’s healthy. It’s tasty. And you can do all kinds of stuff with it. Salmon with quinoa salad is just one way to use it. Not a bad one though, if I do say so myself.
Lobster bisque. This is soup for when you want to impress. Creamy. Rich. Luxurious. It’s everything wrong with French cooking. And it’s everything right with French cooking. Wonderful stuff indeed.
Fish and rice noodles isn’t something that just pops into your head when you’re thinking about what to make for dinner. At least it doesn’t pop into mine very often. Don’t know why. When I do think of it this is one I like. Salmon with rice noodles. It makes a fast, yet elegant weeknight meal.
Pad Thai is a classic noodle stir fry that pretty much everybody loves. And there’s no reason you can’t make it like you get at your local restaurant at home.
