Microwave-poached salmon with pea pods; Thai jasmine rice – 5 June 2018

Another really nice dinner for the “new” (newly received) Mary Grabill dishes. Since the salmon has a lot of liquid in its parchment packet, the brief sides, adding the characteristics of a low bowl, make this design an excellent one … Continue reading

Tilapia; piperade; brown rice – 8 December 2017

D really wanted to try the piperade alongside a fish. I went to the Bowl and texted him some options, and he selected tilapia. No bones! That’s a big plus for me. The smallish fillet I got was maybe half … Continue reading
