The first time I had a salmon dish like this was in Ithaca, New York. A few years ago, Scott had taken me to this secluded, yet rustic and beautiful bed and breakfast, outside of the main town. It was called Casper’s Farm & Villa. Michael, the host, prepared a gourmet meal for Scott and me that I would say was the third most memorable meal I’ve ever eaten. In my life! (First was Frances’ Lodge in Tuscany. Second was a Trattoria in Ravello.)
I guess you could say, it was the most memorable meal I’ve ever had in the United States.
I recall when we first stepped into Michael’s villa. It was such an extraordinary place. And, we were immediately comfortable upon meeting our host. I remember the smell of something cooking. Michael gave us a tour of the property and a peek at what was marinating in the fridge and stewing on the stove. That evening he prepared a delicious salmon dinner along with a bok choy side dish and fresh clams and spaghetti. Everything was superb!
Unfortunately, I failed to ask Michael for the recipe to this particular salmon dish. But, according to Scott, this is darn close. It’s different, and it’s memorable. I hope you’ll try it.
