Valentines Day, what a fabricated excuse to show the one you love that you love them. Thanks Hallmark. Frankly I don’t need a day to prove that I love those I love. I try to express that to them each and every day. So with that attitude I nearly always plan to stay in on Valentines and keep it simple. This doesn’t mean I can’t try out a new recipe.

I usually bake or bbq salmon so this was my first experience throwing those delicate salmon steaks in a ‘medium to hot’ pan.

Roasted for nearly an hour and a half this sweet potato dish worked out wonderfully. Tossed in olive oil and seasoned with S&P, paprika and turmeric they took on a wonderful glaze.

Dishin…

Waitin…

The pan seared salmon is accompanied by an Avocado Remoulade which was certainly delectable. If you ask me salmon and avocado were meant to be together. Find the recipe here. Thank you to my new favorite site; www.tastespotting.com
