Dinner tonight!

I am very blessed in that every year, I am able to go on a family fishing trip with my husband and his dad. So, I usually have a freezer stocked with some great fish! Tonights dinner was a Pan-Seared Salmon with a Creamy Mushroom Sherry sauce, served over Parmesan Polenta with steamed broccoli. Can I just say YUM! This sauce is very versatile, as I have made something similar to it to be served with steak. When you pan sear salmon, always sear the presentation side first and you will get a great crust!
Here, the salmon is nearly finished and it has a beautiful, golden sear on the presentation side...

Here is the finished dinner! Both the polenta and the sauce have dijon mustard in them, so they are subtly tied together. The colors are amazing! Not only is it beautiful, but the salmon is so good for you. Definitely a new favorite for me!

  4. Oh my goodness, this sounds AMAZING! I Heather said on her blog that you're working on a cookbook. Can you share the details yet?

  5. Thank you everyone for you comments! Yes, I am working on a cookbook. At this point, I'm still developing recipes. I've been working on this for a few years now. It's a huge undertaking! I am trying to develop at least a couple of recipes per week. I have a 3 year old, so that can make it challenging. It will contain many or all of the recipes I post on here. A lot of recipes that anyone can make!
