Cooked Cucumber









Last month when I was reading the NY Times- one of my favorite things to do, I was reading about food article that featured a salmon cooked with cucumber. I know this seems a bit strange, but J and I have watched Jacque Pepin and Julia Child cook with them and it always sounded intriguing. Just to clarify, we often just refer this dynamic kitchen duo as Jacque and Julia and watch their cooking DVD's as well as own a host of their cookbooks. We followed the recipe pretty closely, and were quite pleased with the salmon cooked in brown butter with the crunchy but just cooked cucumbers and a sprinkling of dill. If you do give this a go, I would recommend paying a bit more attention to the salmon, and serve it more on the medium rate side. It's a shame to kill a good fish twice. Here's the article with recipe.
