I admit I’m late to the whole twitter thing but I set up an account when I setup this blog (@FridgeCleaner). So far I have four followers (shout out!), two of which claim to be women who have web addresses that contain the word “porn” … sorry girls but not likely to return the follow… anyway. So I’m following Whole Foods on Twitter and saw they are having a one day sale on Alaska wild-caught Sockeye Salmon ($7.99/lb)… I do love me a sale!
I’m a salmon fan, and especially when grilled on a cedar plank, but I don’t always plan ahead enough to soak the planks for several hours… today is not that day. I also thought it would be fun to try finishing the salmon off with some lemon dill butter so when i put in the planks I also pulled a few sticks of butter to soften and grabbed a few scallops to thaw… the cedar planks were pretty big so why not use the space, right?
In my head here is how the menu is evolving…
Cedar Plank Salmon with lemon juice, olive oil and fresh dill finished with Lemon Dill Butter
Cedar Plank Scallops dusted with Honey Powder, Grey Sea Salt and Pepper
Grilled Balsamic Brussel Sprouts and Cauliflower
Heirloom Tomato Salad with Porcini Oil & Basil Dressing (Heirlooms were also on sale at WF!)
So here is how I made the lemon dill butter:
Lemon Dill Butter2 sticks unsalted butter (softened) 1-2 teaspoons dill weed 1 teaspoon olive oil 1/8 teaspoon lemon oil (I had it in the pantry, likely could have used lemon juice or zest instead) Ping of salt Combine all the ingredients in a food processor or mixer. Mix until well blended. Before and After…
For the record dinner plans changed so the dinner menu will be delayed by a night.
I need honey powder now. Just when I braved the world of flavored salts…you show me THIS?
What I could do with honey powder.
While I can’t give personal testimony, I was told honey powder can be used out of the kitchen as well.
