Tuesday 7th April 2009Blackberries Artichokes Bulgar Salmon
What do you get when four unlikely ingredients collide into a recipe?|
One of my favourite food blogging events, yet sadly it's been a while since I've participated. I'll often buy the ingredients in the hope of producing something on time, only to fail at the last curtain call.
The previous list of ingredients pulled from the hat were; anchovy, polenta, mint and figs; which had me dreaming up a dish of "Sticky Figgy Lamb Ribs with Grilled Polenta Chips." I only got to the planning stage, the recipe never made it to the plate, let alone this little blog.
Now, as you may have guessed this time the quartet of ingredients are...
My excuses? Firstly I thought I had some in the back of the cupboard - I thought wrong! After which I discovered my local (rural) shops don't stock it and as such with all my fussing left it too late to try my luck in the city's wholefood stores. To cut my long story short... I've substituted Couscous. The blackberries were picked wild and fresh from our property's boundary, I've used marinated Artichokes from Delmaine, as fresh are rarely found and are not in season Downunder. My Salmon is beautiful sliced smoked Akaroa salmon which as you know, just happens to be one of my most favourite foods evah!
In the back of my mind I know there may be some sceptics out there to this flavour combination, often there are with Paperchef entries. However, we positively fought over these for lunch yesterday and in hindsight wished I had doubled the recipe to make 4!
