Keeping it craaaazy simple today.
You know, I hardly ever post a recipe where it’s like, a protein and a side. Like old school meals. Not that we don’t eat like that, we totally do. Matter of fact, one of my weekly go-to meals is a seared chicken breast, roasted potatoes (with ranch on the side, natch.), and sautéed broccolini. We do that a ton! But it’s not necessarily all that exciting to see. Know what I mean, Vern?
But THIS? ^^^ Holy faces, guys. It’s crazy good. AND STUPID EASY.
And listen, the herbs can be whatever you want. Go all parsley if it makes your life easy! I just grabbed a ton from the garden all willy nilly, but it’s seriously whatever your face craves.
Make a quick herby blend! It’s not really a pesto. More like a chimichurri since I added a splash of white wine vinegar. It just adds that POW, you know?
Roast your cauli! Just olive oil, salt and pepper. Das it.
Sear some salmon!
Quick poll – when you say the word salmon, do you pronounce the L just to be annoying? SaLmon? SALmon? I do. You’re not at all surprised by that, are you?
Sear it in butter because THAT IS LIFE.
Give the gnocchi a quick dunk in some boiling water, then toss it alllll together. The roasted cauli, the chimi, the potato pillows, your entire upper torso.
Serve it up! Your buttery seared sALmon, with a delightful herby gnocchi/cauli side. It’s this insane marriage of omega 3 party town, and a cozy pajama sleepover. I don’t know what all those words meant just now, but just go with it.
Garnish with so much parmesan cheese you want to punch something.
Dinner tonight? Duh.
