It’s difficult to take pictures of anything “creamed” without eliciting an initial response of, “Ewww – friggin’ dog!!”

Having said that, this dinner was exquisite with a blindfold on.

A boneless fillet of wild-caught sockeye salmon, poached in a sauce of heavy cream, smoked salmon bits and capers, and served along side a veggie-fried black rice:

‘Twas substantially better than it looked, and set my quest to regain my gurlish figure back a month.

But we hedonists can’t help ourselves, now, can we??

Dinner Capers! November 8, 2007

Heard a great-sounding recipe on the radio today, for a puttanesca sauce, uncooked, with many of my favorite ingredients.

So of course I came home and made it!

The Sauce:


Fresh tomatoes, black olives, capers, a bulb of garlic, some anchovies, and a generous handful of parsley. Chop coarsely, mix together, drizzle with some Extra Virgin olive oil and let sit at room temperature for half an hour or so.

Cook your pasta while you stare at your creation and sob:


Penne works well for a coarsely-chopped topping like this.

Drain al dente pasta, toss with sauce, sprinkle liberally with a dry, aged grated cheese (in this case a local goat cheese reminiscent of an Italian pecorino,) garnish with some lemon slices and splash with a squeeze of the juice.


As Porgy Tirebiter used to say, “Eat it. Eat it raw!
