Best Salmon Ever

When Kevin was about 2 or 3 of age, we discovered that he liked salmon. It was a pretty weird fare for a picky toddler who otherwise existed on more simpler foods like Cheerios and chicken nuggets. But whenever we served it for dinner, he ate it, in spite of the slightly fishy smell pervading the kitchen! I would rub the fish down with a little olive oil and generously sprinkle lemon-pepper on top before baking. It was a favorite of everyone at our house.

And then I tasted Salmon in Bermuda. Maybe we were just extremely hungry after hiking the Railway Trail that morning. Whatever the reason, this citrusy relish-topped salmon from a little counter service eatery in Hamilton could well be "The Best Thing I Ever Ate"!* I would LOVE to know all the ingredients that were used, and I even tried googling recipes that I thought might be similar. No such luck. I wish I could recreate this dish at home, but I will have to settle for the memory instead.

Supplies: Patterned paper-BasicGrey (Out of Print collection), Letter stickers-BasicGrey, KI Memories, Corrugated letters-, Felt leaves-Making Memories, Fiber, Dye ink, tag, burlap.

*There's a show by this name on the Food Network, a channel that is on at our house almost as often as Disney. Tommy is a cooking show aficionado!
