MrsWCA is bed bound so I will prepare food – Help!
no idea how salmon cooks, by which I mean, timings required.
A favourite dish on mine is chicken wrapped in parma ham, which I do like this
In a foil parcel with wine, etc , 18-20 mins at 180 should be spot on
Only slight change is I open the foil parcel when there’s about 5 mins to go, I like the ham to be a little bit ‘dry’Posted 4 years ago
I am responsible for food tonight. I am not the worlds best person generally and cooking isn’t top of my skills list. MrsWCA is a trained cooks so I have been spoilt over the years.
Here is the plan so far
2 Salmon steaks wrapped in Parma ham and fried
White wine and cream sauce
Chips / Side Salad
I have a recipe for the sauce which is slightly sharp to counteract the oil from the fish / ham. The chip / side salad are there because they can either be prepped in advance or left to cook on their own while I panic about the rest of it.
Anything else I should do to accompany it?Posted 4 years ago
Any hints on how long to pan fry (how else do you fry?)the fish ?lungeSubscriber
Sod that, make tartiflette.
Chop spuds into disks and cook for 10 mins. Soften a sliced onion in a pan.
Layer into a baking disk spacing with the onion, spiced sausage (chorizo type stuff) and lardons.
Throw in a glass of white wine and lots of seasoning.
Put a hole wheel of rebechlon cheese in top
Throw in oven for 20 mins.
Serve with salad and a mustard dressing.
Easy, filthy and very difficult to cock up.Posted 4 years agotheotherjonvSubscriber
Keep it simple – eat the ham as a starter, and oven bake the salmon. If you have or can get some sweet chilli sauce to put on top of the salmon before baking, it makes a nice sticky glaze.
Microwave the spuds whole for 6 or 7 mins, and then chuck them in the oven at the same time as the salmon – 15-18 mins to crisp up the skins, cut open, tonnes of butter (don’t scrimp here) and then a few salad leaves.
Job done.Posted 4 years ago
Salmon is in the oven and the sauce prepped and standing. Too late to change. Salad is about to start when I finish the last of this glass.
She doesn’t like chilli and I don’t like potatoes.
She had her knee flossed yesterday (arthoscopy if you want to be technical) and is fine but not good a sitting stillPosted 4 years agoLunge wrote:
Chvck, I’m sorry, I’m a touch confused here, you don’t like tartiflette?!?! A combination of cheese, wine, potatoes and cured meat? I’m going to need to sit down and take this revelation in.
I like all the components but they just don’t work together for me! Maybe I should try it again…Posted 4 years agotomhowardSubscriber
I am going for the Fish as i don’t like potatoes.
Does not compute, what do you get from the chippy?
To the tartiflette hater

Every savoury food is enhanced with the addition of cheese or bacon (fact). This not only has both, but they are 50% of the ingredients! Try again, if you fail, have a stern word with yourself, then repeat.Posted 4 years ago
