What's cooking  -   Confit of Salmon

Never underestimate the power of your friends.  This is the best salmon dish I have tried, superbly dished up by our chefFriend, Kenneth.  In fact, the day that I met Kenneth, we conversed non-stop, one a food lover and the other a chef.

CONFIT OF SALMON, is salmon slow cooked in olive oil which is first flavoured with lemon grass and orange peel.  It is superbly moist and tender and to my sensitive tastebud which is anti fishy smell, this is a perfect dish.  It simply glides down your throat.

First you have to slice up the fish into fillet; next you need skill hands to remove pin bones that runs through the length of the body o f the salmon, which you can feel if you brush your hand over the centre of the fish.  Then cut the fillet further in thick cuts.  Put the fish into the olive oil for about 8minutes and remove the fire for a further perhaps 5minutes and you are ready to serve.

The dish is very delicious, the stellar salmon slab sitting on a bed of shimeji mushroom and asparagus with side dish of cooked and slice fennel and the plate dripped with truffle and butter suce gives a very good presentation. 

Topping this is the expensive and glorified TRUFFLE sauce that goes with makes it so heavenly sumptious meal.  Very fine dining kinda dish that we had in the comfort of a beautiful home. Alas he has just sold the house to our dismay that this is a rare find of  a home so cozy with such nice balcony.   

Thanks for such a Wonderful Meal !!!

We had more than this for dinner.....tiramisu and pizza self made ...ooh just amazing.
As if this was not sufficient, someone just had to order a huge 21inch Picotin pizza $50+ a box which has a very thin crust and it's very yummy.  Picotin is part of Emmanuel Stroobant's group of restaurants.
