Simple Salmon Supper


It's dinner for one around here since Jonah is out of town for work this week. I didn't want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen last night, and I wanted just enough food for myself. This light supper of smoked salmon with warm potato salad hit the spot and required minimal effort. I picked up a small package of smoked salmon on my way home, cut down the recipe quantities and completed the only cooking involved, boiling a few fingerling potatoes. The touches of dill, lemon juice, crème fraiche and horseradish add lovely bursts of flavor that make you feel like you're eating something really special. Although, I missed our routine of eating dinner together while watching Jeopardy, a glass of prosecco and this happy little plate of food worked wonders.

  5. I had salmon today too - but this looks so much more delicious with your beautiful presentation ;) Mine in a tupperware for lunch was not quite as eye catching! But delish all teh same. ;)

    I'm actually on my own tonight too and enjoying broiled salmon with dill on a bed of quinoa and a glass of brut!

    The best suppers are simple and lovely!
