this dinner was not colorful, it tasted like summer to me!  I sauteed salmon in butter, salt and pepper and chopped fresh cilantro.  Next time, I’ll make a yogurt/sour cream herbed dip to go with the salmon.  I topped it with pickled carrots (special thanks to my mom at
Sidewalk Shoes for giving me homemade basil vinegar which I used to pickle the carrots). However, my favorite part of this meal were the fried plantain bites.  Eating plantains always transports me back to the tropical paradise that the plant  originated.  I browned the plantain slices in butter, slat and pepper.  Sometimes cooking simple brings out the natural flavors even better than spices.

Religiously watching Master Chef has taught me that presentation matters. We eat with our eyes first!
