Sockeye Salmon on Kiwi & Lemon Puree
This post is a little past due (as are many others waiting for narration) but here it is nonetheless. Salmon was our choice (again) for our fish Fridays. It is one of our favorite fish to cook simply because it's easy, doesn't take much time, and packs a whole lot of nutrients. And it was made even better with our regular grocery store (Metcalfe's on the West side) offering a fish Friday sale every week. This time we were able to get our hands on some natural sockeye salmon and not the farm-raised version we had bought several times before. For the sauce, we decided to try something a little unconventional--kiwi. But we did add some lemonade and lime juice to get that extra citrus flavor that goes well with salmon and fish in general. Overall, they both worked pretty well together and the family enjoyed it very much. The only complaint (a minor one) I had were the kiwi seeds popping away as I chewed on the salmon. But as with most dishes I make, I have yet to really enjoy the fruits of my labor.
