something's fishy here

well hello monday!
so lovely to see you again. 
i hope you all enjoyed the holiday short week! i know i did.

i'm still reaping the rewards of hubby's new job. this week he had to film some plated salmon.
and afterwards, we made dinner with it!

i bought a huge thing of fresh dill. 
time to get creative with that! any ideas?
homemade ranch dressing is definitely in the future.

so we bought precooked salmon from the cafe section of the store.
for dinner, i made a lemon dill sauce with lemon juice, fresh dill, pepper, garlic powder and sour cream.
i also roasted some small yellow potatoes in olive oil, salt, pepper and grated parmesan cheese.
and then we roasted asparagus tossed in olive oil, fresh garlic, salt and pepper.

we were completely on course for a dinner of epic proportions.
it was epic alright.
the salmon was an epic fail.
there are a number of things that could have gone wrong, so this is where i need your help.
i rarely cook fish at home...mainly because most times i do, it turns into a natural disaster.
so here's what i'm thinking.
first, i'm thinking i shouldn't have reheated the salmon and just ate it cold on a salad or something like that.
second, failure could have resulted in the time the fish was out of the fridge for filming and in the car from the store.
i wrapped it in a foil tent and heated in the oven for about 7 minutes. the result was a very fishy tasting salmon, and i don't do fishy.
so....fish pros, help me out here. what could have saved this dinner?

while i'm asking for advice, is anyone else having trouble with the blogger templates? my entire sidebar has gone to the bottom of the page. now, this seems to only be a problem on the home page....all of my other pages have it displayed correctly. i'm just trying to figure out if it's a blogger glitch or something on my end. help!


  1. Salmon is a very fishy fish to begin with. I'm not sure anything could prevent it. Drench it in more lemon juice perhaps.
    My blogger has been very wonky for a while.
