Sounds weird and I just didn't know about this recipe, but ever since my friend Alice mentioned French Friday's with Dorie, I've been dying to give it a try. For my first attempt at it though I sure ended up on a week with a very different recipe!
Salmon in a Jar.... I gotta say, this was a new one for me for sure... I wasn't completely sure I would even eat it. It just sounded so WEIRD. Being the food lover that I am I decided to just go for it though and see how it turns out. I was lucky enough to have all the needed ingredients on hand, which was fabulous because the budget right now is non existent!! And I always have salmon in the freezer.
Now according to the recipe, you can eat this right outta the fridge... For me, not so much. I LOVE salmon, but I've never even been remotely tempted to eat it without cooking. So after mine came out of the fridge I threw it on a hot grill for a few minutes on each side. Then I put it on top of a beautiful bed of greens and tomatoes. Ta-da! Salmon Salad. I served the yummy potatoes on the side. Fabulous!!
I have to say it really was delish! The flavor infusion was wonderful. I'm encouraged by the results to try some of my own "jar recipes" and get different flavors.
Unfortunately, the husband had my camera in the field during all the preparations that go into making this dish. But if you go to the FFwD site you can see what it looks like in the jar. I have to say... mine didn't look nearly as glamorous as Dorie's. In fact I was really pretty sure that I wouldn't eat it. LOL!! There is something to be said about camera presentation.
