Friday Food and Favorites: Salmon with a Side of Style

Friday, November 07, 2014

A few weeks ago I decided to start a dream journal to try and learn a little more about myself. I had read that if you keep a notebook next to your bed and jot down your lingering dream memories upon awaking, you will discover things your conscious mind may not be telling you, like fears to be faced, issues to be conquered, or directions to head in.

The first morning I practiced this dream journal exercise I remembered, amongst other possibly more important data, that everyone in my dream was wearing coral, or salmon and they looked really awful, or so I thought. I jotted down, "Do NOT wear coral or salmon this season!" But I was wrong.

Soon enough I found myself pulling this favorite jacket out of my closet and pairing it with the unlikely duo of blue and black for an Instagram look of the day.

Then, soon after, Rachel Zoe appeared in my inbox wearing this dreamy Valentino stunner...
...and that was that. I decided to hell with the silly dream...salmon is beautiful and flattering on everyone. 

The easiest way to wear this color in winter is with a beautiful coat. You won't have to worry about what you're actually wearing underneath. First impressions are everything!

Bonus: Brightly colored outerwear will always add cheer to the most dreary of winter days.

Or go ahead and pull out a quintessentially summer salmon skirt and pair it with classy black...

Ready to eat?

In our house we eat salmon almost every Friday night. And in my opinion, when it comes to cooked salmon, there is no great recipe that surpasses any other. We always end up returning to the tried and true teriyaki salmon, and that is that.  

But when it comes to options for creating pleasing dishes that include raw salmon, this is something entirely different. The fish becomes a backdrop to an endless variety of flavors that can be melded into a beautiful and  exotic appetizer or main dish. 

(With those who don't enjoy raw fish or sushi, there seems to be a misconception that the uncooked version is actually fishier; but this is the exact opposite of the truth. When eating the freshest and highest grade of salmon or tuna, there should be absolutely no fishy taste at all. )

Take a look at this one:

Salmon. Wear it. Eat it. Dream it.

Have a wonderful weekend and good Shabbos!
