Another recipe trial

Week two of my file cookery test, and I am not as thrilled with this week's choices. Funny how on Sunday something looks really good, but by Thursday, not so much. Yes even for a personal chef, this can happen. So I had planned to make a few things, but then we had some leftovers from dinner out, and ended up putting one recipe aside.  There is always another week.  But this week I tried Food Network magazine's Spicy Mushrooms and Green Tea Salmon with Quinoa. 

The mushrooms sounded promising to go with some soy sausages and Brussels sprouts that I decided to have. The mushrooms, tomatoes and jalapeno all sounded really good. The reality is the jalapeno was flat, the dish soupy from the broth, and overall, nothing too interesting. Basically sauteed mushroom, onions and tomatoes. I did use cherry tomatoes instead of plum, but roasted them the same way the recipe stated. I would add less broth (or skip it all together) next time, and maybe a little more tomato and jalapeno. The lime offered nothing on the final notes.....not sure why that was in there. Oh well....not terrible, but nothing special here. Not keeping this one. 

The salmon was not a dish I was excited about making Friday night. I had already bought the salmon and the other ingredients, so decided to keep my commitment and make it any way. I was pleasantly surprised by the flavors....I used black tea as I realized my green tea was flavored with blueberry, and wasn't sure that would offer the best taste. My scallions were looking a little sad (bought them too early in the week) so I used some white onion instead. I would add a little more ginger personally, and the sriracha cooked with the quinoa was a little weird. Perhaps finish the dish with a little drizzle of sriracha instead of cooking it in with the grain. I am not a huge fan of quinoa, and would perhaps use bulgur next time, but the salmon was good and did pick up the flavors of the tea. Loved the cilantro finish too.  Overall I liked this dish with the subtlety of the tea and the broccoli as a side.  A keeper with modifications. 

I apologize for failing to get a good photo for you, but the links above are pretty accurate. 

Do you have recipes you would like me to test? Just ask - please be considerate of a no meat or dairy diet, but I am open to suggestions! I only have another 4,562 recipes to get to on my own....

Good cooking, and fun food for the Superbowl!

I had recently purchased the salmon and alternate fixings, so chose to keep my dedication and make it any way. I was enjoyably shocked by the flavors. i utilized dark tea as I understood my green tea was seasoned with blueberry, and wasn't certain that might offer the best taste.
