I had a piece of salmon and some streaky bacon that needed eating
I made mistake tonight. I started with my piece of Sunday salmon and thought I’d dust it with some flour. Then I remembered the bacon I needed to eat. I chucked that into the bag with the salmon and flour and ended up with a ghostly white piece of salmon and dusty streaky bacon. At that point I should have changed my mind from baking and gone to frying in a little oil with a lid on the frying pan to moisten the Sunday salmon. Instead I went with my first thought and didn’t think it through. A bad mistake.
I served the Sunday salmon and bacon with some coleslaw that had been mixed with leftover quinoa that had been cooked in chicken fat and added some jalapeño pepper and red chilli.
The inside of the flesh of the salmon was fine, in fact it was moist and nicely cooked. The yuck factor was the skin. It was floury. The bacon also was dry instead of dripping with fat like it should. A wholly unpleasant experience. I ate the salad and the proteins together to try to improve the mouth feel. It worked but not for the Sunday salmon skin.
So have you ever spoiled dinner?
I should have just been happy with lunch
The exciting thing this morning was a flyover of some balloons over Lake Ginninderra. The noise you can hear are my really noisy neighbours.
