Snowfall — And Salmon with Winter Hash
We just got a major snow fall yesterday (and all through the night). Right now, snow coating all the tree branches, everything — Gorgeous, lovely.
And we enjoyed a tasty dinner last night — Balsamic Roasted Salmon with a tasty Winter Hash. After a very busy (but productive) week, and warmer temperatures for a few days — It was fun to celebrate another snowfall with a simple, earthy (and winter-tasty) dinner. A fire whispering in the fireplace; snow falling outside.
The Food — Salmon with Winter Hash:
Roasting Salmon is sooooo easy — I simply swizzle in a lite mixture of olive oil and balsamic, just to coat. I place on a baking tray lined with parchment; bake in 400-degree oven for exactly 20 minutes. Perfect, moist, delicious.
For the Winter Hash, I roasted ahead of time — Yukon potatoes, sweet potatoes. I sauteed a bit of smokey bacon, red onion, mushroom, a bit of chard. Tossed it all together and called it Winter Hash. Wonderful mix of flavors and textures. And together with the Salmon, a just-right winter (snowfall) dinner!! Comfort-food, delish!!
The Pottery — Square-Rimmed Maasha Plate:
I chose to serve my colorful Salmon/Hash Dinner on a favorite Maasha Plate (almost a Platter) — Stoneware, hand-built, slips and ash glazes (with tape-resist design features).
I love making these plates/platters — Creating a very ‘constructional’ statement with the rim. I’m anxious to dash down to my studio and make more!! And, they provide a delightful way to enjoy a tasty (Salmon/Hash) dinner!!
Hope everyone is getting through this (crazy) Winter OK!!
