Salmon with Capers and Dill

This Irish dish consists of salmon with briny capers & fresh dill and has quickly become one of my husband’s favorite dishes that I cook.

Salmon with Capers and Dill

How was your weekend? Grandmama and Granddaddy (Mama & Daddy to me) came to visit John Grayson. I can’t believe he is already one month old!

Luckily, while they were cuddling with him I got to work on my recipe for Strawberry Basil Sangria. We also made my Tomato Tortellini Bisque for dinner one night. And I had every intention on working on a recipe for Margherita Pizza but let’s be honest between these 2 am feedings recipe testing 2 meals was about all I could handle.

The other meal I cooked was Alton Brown’s Eggplant Parmesan. I actually joined a Cookbook group on Facebook called Pass the Cookbook. More on this on Thursday.

Speaking of cookbooks, back in October I started a series called Cooking My Way Through BooksI have been wanting to cook through my hundred or so cookbooks. And don’t judge that I continue to buy cookbooks and ask for them as gifts – this will not stop sorry Mama. But with all of these books I am trying to start cooking through them. What I mean by this is actually follow the recipe which like I have said before is quite hard for me.

So this recipe is from the same cookbook I got the Chicken Casserole with Cheesy Herb Dumplings – Rachel’s Irish Family Food. And the best part is this is another 5 ingredient fix meal.
