When I look at The Four Year Old and tell her that we’re having salmon for dinner, she gets this hopeful look on her face and asks: Cooked salmon?
The disappointment is instantaneous when I tell her yes, I will in fact be cooking the salmon first. I was 22 when I had sushi for the first time. Landry? Wielding chopsticks since around 2.
When April’s HEB Primo Picks arrived, I made a beeline for the Roasted Red Pepper Tapenade, a flavorful sauce studded with chunks of red peppers. I knew exactly what I was going to do with it: pour it into a small ramekin, top with a some goat cheese rounds, pop it into the oven until it was bubbly perfection, and call it mine.
(Disclosure: I also made a beeline for the Multigrain Smoked Gouda Chips. Total domination. Those guys didn’t stand a smokey, crunchy chance against me and that bowl of Strawberry Salsa.)
Instead, I opted to share. A cold slab of salmon and crumbly, tangy goat cheese were calling. A 7-minute trip through the broiler was all it took to transform 3 ingredients into a fabulous main dish.
It’s hard for even The Four Year Old to be disappointed in dinner when it’s that delicious.
As for the giveaway, HEB has set aside a collection of their Primo Picks to be delivered to a lucky reader. And I have set aside a $50 gift card (HEB or Amazon, your choice!) to be delivered to that same lucky reader.
The winner is… Heather with comment #88. Thanks for playing!
