Rhubarb is a species of plant that has pinkish stalks that are crisp like celery with a strong, tart taste and is often prepared as though it were a fruit. I decided to turn it into jam and thus became the inspiration to this salmon dish! Feel free to substitute with fresh or canned pineapple.
This fish really tasted like butter. The trick is to buy really fresh fish, it’s so worth it! The jam can be made up to 5 days in advance, just bring to room temperature and place on top of fish and add fresh mint right before serving.
I love crostinis, finger food, appetizer party food. But it is so rare to be served such a thing! I created a dinner based on this! There are a lot of steps but I promise the prep shouldn’t take longer then ten minutes and the cooking time is another 15 minutes tops. (Prepare all the ingredients in advance so you can do one thing after the other!)
I know there are a lot of ingredients in this dish that people usually stay away from, so I decided to get them all over with at once. If you buy roquefort cheese from a cheese shop, buy a piece with the smallest amount of blue in it to ease your way in. I promise this salad is crunchy and delicious, try it once and you will find it delicious and be so proud of yourself!
This salad is filling, refreshing and bursting with flavor. If you are not a cilantro lover you can leave it out. The key here is to use the freshest ingredients.
