Hi food friends!
As we talked about last time, I've been making recipes from Danielle Walker's new cookbook, Celebrations, to show you why you should buy her book. It. is. stunning. Have you seen her flip through it on Youtube? If not, watch it below! If you were on the fence about buying it before hand, you will be SOLD after watching this--you can see all of the holiday and celebratory sections and a lot of the recipes. The pictures are gorgeous and I just can't wait to make everything.
One of my all time favorite dinners is salmon and green beans so I KNEW I had to make the blackened salmon with stone fruit salsa. I can't even. It is SO GOOD. Like, David was SO impressed--and if you know him (or read the blog) at all then you know that this is rare. The method of preparing the salmon, the rub, the salsa, and the all around flavor were just amazing.
I never would have thought to put stone fruit with salmon but somehow it just WORKED. I haven't used blackened seasoning before and shy away from it at restaurants because I worry about it being too spiced and overwhelming. This wasn't. The spice and heat were definitely there but it was balanced by the fruit and avocado in the salsa and just made the perfect bite.
There are still a few weeks left of summer weather and this is the PERFECT meal to make to celebrate it! Though I can't give you the recipe, it is in the preview of the cookbook on Amazon so you can go see it for yourself and trust me, you need this in your life!
