poached pacman salmon
Hi, Casey here. Here it is, every Gen X nerd's favourite seafood dish! Poached salmon in a "PACMAN" arrangement. Clare wanted me to cook dinner, and I have a favourite poached salmon dish that is probably one of three dishes I actually knew before meeting Clare. But if I'm going to post one of my few dishes on the internet, I HAVE to take the opportunity to go retro man!
The top photo shows multiple pacman shaped lemon slices on a fillet of rare poached salmon with crushed garlic and finely chopped thyme. Around this is a path of chopped steamed asparagus pills and the SUPER POWER KIPFLER PILL! which is a couple of steamed kipfler potatoes, tossed in chopped parsley and extra virgin olive oil.
Cooking this dish is REEEEAAAALLLLYY simple, I rubbed crushed garlic, chopped thyme and olive oil on a couple of bits of salmon, then poached them in a shallow covered oven dish in cup of dry white wine for about 25 mins at 200 Celcius. For C to F temperature conversion either move to Australia or look it up on Google.
With this food it's a case of super high quality ingredients and really simple treatment. I asked Clare for her opinion, and all I got was a number of long varied groans, ones I wished I could inspire in the bedroom. Hi mum, hi dad, sorry about that.
