Doing it again with baked salmon and creamy Brussels sprouts

So last night I made what I thought was an amazing baked salmon with creamy cabbage. I had an extra piece of salmon and I figured if it was good enough last night I’d repeat it tonight with a slight twist. Regular readers will have noticed my fondness of Brussels sprouts so I thought I’d combine the baked salmon with creamy Brussels sprouts.

I know a lot of people complain that Brussels sprouts are bitter and yucky. I think if you pick them young and cook them gently the bitterness isn’t a problem. Obviously using some bacon, butter and cream will provide a rich lusciousness that coats the tastebuds.

I can highly recommend this way of cooking some salmon and creamy Brussels sprouts.
