FOOD DIARY: shallow poached salmon steaks

Last night Diane made us a cracker of a diet menu although a person would never know that it was a low-cal meal.

She started the meal with an old favourite: asparagus wrapped in prosciutto.  The prosciutto imparts a delicious flavour to the spears as well as giving the asparagus a little moisture from the small amount of fat surrounding the meat pieces.  She very lightly fried the wrapped spears.

The salmon was poached in a light Vegeta stock which made the steaks very moist and very tender (even for salmon pieces.)

As a wine we enjoyed two glasses of local Swan Valley Chardonnay which is, in my opinion, under priced for its quality.
