Green sauce with salmon

Eating different dishes is not really important for us dogs. We’re perfectly happy eating the same thing every day, in fact some with sensitive stomach (not me thankfully) don’t take too kindly to abrupt menu changes. I don’t know if humans are different because they have the privilege of eating being more than just fuelling their bodies, but it’s good for humans to try new dishes, new combinations from time to time. So here’s a new recipe.

The essence of the beautiful is unity in variety.

As mentioned the other day, we had some unexpected amount of sorrel arriving, so in the spirit of both health and no waste, Missy searched for recipes to use it. One of them, found here, sounded really promising: salmon is great, yoghurt is great, sorrel is great, so what can go wrong?

The recipe (modified the original)
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon honey
1 handful of sorrel
salt to taste
juice of half a lemon
1 teaspoon honey
juice of half a lemon
1 sweet potato
2 triangles of cheese
couple dice of bacon

The start wasn’t great: adding the ingredients of the sauce into the mixer created a much thinner liquid than expected, not at all sauce- like. So Missy added more yoghurt under my supervision and taste-testing (Greek yoghurt is yum!) and used a whisk to mix them as the original recipe required. It didn’t thicken much, but she put it in the fridge to see if it would help. It didn’t. At least we were in no rush for lunch so we could give it some time.

The salmon was easy to prepare, spread the honey on top, added the lemon juice, and in it went on the bake tray. To add some more fill to lunch, Missy added a sweet potato, cut in half. She removed a small section, replaced with cheese, added some bacon as well. Can you imagine the smell coming from the oven?!

Finally, tasting time arrived. I mean sure, it looked ok I guess but do you see the amount? Please petition to Missy that I deserve more. The green sauce was not my favourite but Missy really liked it with the salmon and sweet potatoes so apparently my opinion doesn’t count. The sauce recipe’s amount made for a much bigger portion than we needed, so Missy froze them into ice cubes shaped like fish. I fear it’ll come back to me when I least expect it!

I noticed how much liberty Missy took with the recipe. Is that common? Do you do the same?

Love, Mia
