Karl’s Smoked Salmon and Avocado Toast

About once a week we have what we call “deli dinner”—smoked salmon or lox, bread, cheeses, and salads. We usually get most of the ingredients for this meal from La Villa Italian Deli. However, since it is a family run business, they close for the entire Thanksgivings Day weekend.

We made do by getting our ingredients from Whole Food‘s this week. We had some hot smoked salmon leftover and I decided to use it for lunch the next day. How do you feed three people with only one ounce of fish? I decided to mix it with an avocado and some chives that I had remaining from making Thanksgiving dinner. Avocado toast makes a great lunch when paired with a green salad. Continue reading

Karl’s Orange Dinner

In the continued effort to make meals for Jan that she doesn’t have to do any biting—she has two front tooth temporary caps—I suggested salmon for dinner. She thought yams were a good soft starch to go with the fish. She then suggested that this was an Orange Dinner.

Karl’s Broiled Salmon with Lemon Marmalade and Dill

It is a weekday meal and I wanted something simple and quick. I decided on broiled salmon, but how to make it special? I make a lot of marmalades—most of which I give away—but I usually have a few flavors in my kitchen. Today, I chose the lemon and dill goes nicely with lemon.

Karl’s Fresh Salmon Patties

Jan and I are on our own this weekend as Eilene has gone to a CON in L.A. I did not feel like left over chili, but I am unused to cooking for only two. Jan has been complaining about red meat and starch heavy meals, so I finally settled on salad and salmon patties.

Many recipes for salmon patties call for using canned salmon—including my mother’s. For this meal, I decided I wanted to use fresh fish and my new favorite ingredient Japanese mayonnaise. Glancing at a few other recipes, I settled on my ingredients list and off I went.

Karl’s Leftovers: Salmon Salad with Raspberry Radish Slaw

This Sunday we had a complex soup, cioppino,  that would take up most of my attention. I did not want to have just a plain greens salad, but it needed to be simple. Fortunately, yesterday was Jan and my 33rd anniversary and I had made salmon wraps for dinner.

Karl’s Salmon Lettuce Wraps with Raspberry Radish Slaw

Jan has been working 70-80 hour weeks lately—if only she would get paid for some of that overtime. It is hardly surprising that she has ended up working on our anniversary. Today is Jan and my 33rd anniversary. We are having the major celebration with cioppino tomorrow with the kids, but there is still tonight’s dinner to make special.

Claudia’s Baked Salmon

Before I left home for the first time, I sat down with my mother’s recipe box and wrote down my favorite dishes. I just posted a salmon cake recipe that put me in mind of one of my mother’s recipes: Baked Salmon. Claudia’s recipe cards were remarkable in their brevity and assumed knowledge. I will present the card as written and then give more detailed instructions for making this dish. Continue reading
