February 24, 2014 – Inventive leftovers

I did not post anything for yesteday because we had a bread dinner. It consisted of bread, sometimes oil, sometimes butter, sometimes dukkah. Also we ate artichokes. I like an offbeat dinner every once in a while and if I am going to eat REAL bread as opposed to something dietetic, the bread is going to be the main event.

Today’s dinner is a way to use leftover fish, in this case salmon. We saute up onions, garlic, and capers in a little oil and add snow peas. In the meantime we cook our remaining salmon gently in a slow oven. (These were uneven pieces not used in our main course a few days ago.) When the pasta is just al dente we add it to the snow pea mixture reserving a cup of the pasta water. Then we chunk up the salmon and add about 3/4 of the cup of pasta water to make a sauce. We fold the salmon in gently so as not to break up the pieces. This is an excellent use of leftover salmon.
