Peanut crusted salmon

Here’s a great dish I did for one of our families with their weekly meal prep. For those of you who don’t know about our weekly meal prep service, it’s a cooking service where we go to a customer’s home every week at the same time, then shop for groceries, cook fantastic food to last all week, clean up, and leave their fridge stocked with a week’s worth of great meals that they can reheat in just minutes.

I made the peanut crusted salmon below with pan roasted fresh beets and carrots, sauteed napa cabbage and bean sprouts.

Cooking lesson party at the Hughey's!

I had a great time tonight cooking up a meal while the Hughey’s and their guests watched, drank wine, and asked questions. (Not necessarily in that order)

We made:

  • Cheese tray with Stilton stuffed double Gloucester, Jarlsberg, Port Salut and Cabot extra sharp white cheddar
  • Mesclumn greens salad with roasted corn, cherry tomatoes and a fresh dill and cucumber vinaigrette
  • Dry herb rubbed beef tenderloin, Port Salut potato hash, and pan wilted spinach greens
  • Strawberry cream cheese stuffed homemade crepes with lemon cream and fresh strawberries
  • Grilled filet of tenderloin with shitake basalmic reduction and Port Salut potato hash

    We did a really fun prom party on the rooftop of some lofts in downtown Wichita this past Saturday. It was a great idea for a party from the hosting couple. I’ve attached some pictures.

    We served:

    Pepper bacon wrapped U-10 shrimp with cherry horseradish sauce

    Mesclumn green salad with fire roasted corn, cherry tomatoes, goat cheese and a fresh cucumber dill vinaigrette

    Grilled filet of beef tenderloin with seared asparagus, smoked cheese horseradish potato hash and sweet onion marmalade
