Last spring, I had the opportunity to take a seafood cooking class with my mom at the local community college here in Bend. The kitchen is a teaching kitchen, so it is fully equipped, and the professor of cuisine on this particular day was a cookbook author and seasoned chef who caters throughout the Pacific Northwest – Suzanne Landry. Needless to say, I learned oodles about the seafood that is quite abundant here in Oregon and throughout the region.
Now this was not a class to stand around and observe. Nope! In other words, I was glad I wore flat, comfortable shoes. In four hours, we made seven recipes, and while we worked as table teams, we made and ate our own lunch and had enough for dinner or lunch the next day if we wanted to take it home (we all took something home – :)).
One of the recipes that I immediately knew I would want to welcome into my regular cooking repertoire was the Spicy Salmon Rub with Avocado and Corn Salsa. This recipe and each of the others (fish tacos was one as well – yum!) are all available in her vegetarian cookbook – The Passionate Vegetable: Health Inspired Recipes to Revitalize Your Life for Vegetarians or Meatlovers! But I wanted to share this recipe with you as it is included in TSLL’s newly released Summer Capsule Menu (free to download!).
In just 15 minutes, this meal can be enjoyed. And after a busy day, this is a go-to full of fresh flavor that won’t add to your exhaustion, but rather offer fuel and much needed energy. I have a feeling you will love it as much as I do.
