Le Cordon Bleu Basic: Saumon Grillé, Beurre Émulsionné à la Ciboulette, Épinards Sautés, Pommes Byron/Grilled Salmon, Emulsified Butter Sauce, Sautéed Spinach, Byron Potatoes

This was a pretty easy dish (relative to the chicken, which I made this morning).  Comments: Salmon was just barely overcooked (and there were still a couple of bones in them! D:), sauce was good, Byron potatoes were good, sauce was excellent.  Pretty successful seeing as I was pooped from a day of classes, and the griddles were not very cooperative.

I actually remembered to take a photo before I presented it!

Yummy!  Here’s how it was done – once again the steps are kind of all over the place so it’s up to you to organize yourself well and finish quickly!


And now I have half a roast chicken and two salmon steaks just sitting in my fridge waiting for me to eat. 🙂
