A new rule I set for myself is that I'm not allowed to make my favorite recipes from "At Home with Madhur Jaffrey" until I try at least five new recipes from the book. Everything has been so good that it's a shame to make the same things week after week. So, I started tonight with two new recipes from her book.
I bought a beautiful piece of salmon from Wilson Fish yesterday at the Ballard farmers market. There are several salmon recipes in the cookbook that sound delicious but the easiest sounding one was the Grilled Masala Salmon. I went with that. My fillet was 1.25lbs so I doubled the spices and used extra lemon juice in the sauce. It turned out delicious - perfectly cooked, perfectly flavored.
I also made her recipe for Carrots with Cilantro using red carrots from the farmers market. Delicious and easy.
We're addicted to rice in my house so I went looking for a recipe for coconut basmati rice. I settled on Bobby Flay's Coconut-Cashew Basmati Rice Salad, although I skipped the cashews and the coconut flakes. It paired perfectly with the salmon and carrots.
I also roasted some broccoli, adding garlic slices toward the end, and finishing with a squeeze of lime juice.
Great recipes to try if the flavors interest you. Time to get Madhur's cookbook if you don't already have it!
