Crunchy Top Roasted Salmon Sautéed Squash Sticks Michigan Applesauce
Roasted salmon always puts me in the mood for Fall or is it vice versa? I have a quick way of roasting the salmon with a light mustard sauce and topped with bread crumbs which gives the cooked fish a bit of a crunch. I’m pairing it with heirloom squash that I’m cutting into matchstick size and sautéing delicately, then adding a bit of fresh thyme. Finally, I’ll be cooking up a batch of applesauce. So simple, so tasty and it’s versatility goes from table to packed lunch.
Two lovely pints of Michigan strawberries were all that were left at Mick Klug’s stand at the Green City Market on Saturday. Seeing these beautiful berries was the validation I needed that the polar vortex of 2014 in Chiberia was over and spring has arrived. I would love to share a recipe that I used with the berries but my daughter and I ate the bowl in under five minutes. Maybe next Saturday.
