Salmon & Cauliflower Pureé

I love salmon. Salmon is my go-to protein and I would/do eat salmon over chicken any day. I just quickly search salmon on my blog andI am surprised that I haven’t shared any recipes with salmon yet.

Although there are many ways to cook salmon, and fish in general, I tend to cook it in the oven because on the stove top the smell stinks up my entire small apartment. I’ve learned the hard way too many times, so now it just goes in the oven. However, if you don’t have the same issue feel free to cook your salmon anyway you want.

A few weeks ago, I shared the cauliflower fiasco of the early 2000’s. just to recap, my mom tried to trick me by serving me mashed cauliflower instead of mashed potatoes. Long story short…. I knew something was up right away. You can’t fool me into trying new foods (except for tofu… I’ll explain that one another day). So anyways, this is what I was referring to on how to successfully add cauliflower to mashed potatoes. The key word is add, not replace. I used 1 cup of cauliflower roasted with ½ cup of potatoes and really liked the flavor and texture. I don’t think it taste much like cauliflower but the texture is a little different than pure mashed potatoes. If anyone tries this at home, you will have to tell me how it goes!

I just think adding a puree under a piece of fish looks fancy! In addition to the sprouts, I served mine with a bed of greens with a little olive oil and vinegar.  I would make this for a date night.. but that would require your date to like fish… mine doesn’t so I just will eat both servings.
