Salmon, Peas, and Raspberries
This meal can be made in less than half an hour. Melt some butter in a medium sauce pan on medium high heat. Sprinkle some ground cardamom, dill, and thyme on salmon fillets. When butter is good and hot place salmon fillets in hot butter skin side up and sizzle for about a minute, turn down heat to medium and let cook for two more minutes, then turn down to low, cover and let cook till flaky. The idea is to get a nice browned surface on the fillet.
After you cover the salmon, in another small sauce pan melt a little butter add your snow peas and sprinkle with crushed mint and a pinch of sugar. Stir peas so butter coats them, sugar melts, and mint is distributed. These just need to be heated since snow peas don't need much cooking. Serve with a garnish of raspberries or some other colorful fruit or salad. Unfortunately the Greek festival is a rain out. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
