Nothing Says “Happy Easter” Like A Smoked Salmon Platter

31 Mar

EasterHappy Easter! While I’m not making a fancy holiday meal today (I have to get ready for Game of Thrones tonight, duh), we started the day with a platter of Smoked Salmon (with fresh dill, pea shoots, hard boiled egg, red onion, tomatoes, and an assortment of toasted bagels and english muffins), lots of fruit (clementines, bananas, grapes, mangoes, and apples), and some roasted asparagus for good measure.

Hangover? What hangover! Uh…I mean Happy Easter!

OneDo you see that? It’s Bacon and Pea Shoot Soup [drool]

It’s a special soup I made from ingredients from the Ann Arbor Farmer’s Market….FOR the Ann Arbor Farmer’s Market Blog. You can find the article here.

The story behind the recipe: I went to the market a week in advance to scope out the produce to create a fun recipe (I did this at the tail end of a morning run, equipped with a credit card shoved in my running pants butt-pocket). I saw lots of greens, root vegetables, and sausages, so I thought “veggie-heavy cassoulet, BOOM, Erica, you’ve done it again”. Once I was done browsing I stopped at Durham’s Tracklements and Smokery for some smoked salmon, and jogged over to Zingerman’s Deli to grab some bagels (paying with my sweaty butt-credit card, mind you). Nothing says “cool” like jogging a half mile home in head to toe running gear and holding a bag of smoked fish. It made for a delightful breakfast for many days to come.

However, when I made my way to the market the next week to assemble the dish, almost all the items I had seen the previous week were not there. Crestfallen. I was almost inconsolable until I saw the pea-shoots (which make a DELICIOUS, healthy, and expensive snack if you feel so inclined). After doing about 3 more awkward circles through the booths I came up with the recipe (which, again, you can find here)
