Ooo Fancy!

This recipe was an attempt to replicate a salmon dish from one of my favorite hometown restaurants in Anchorage, Alaska. I love trying new ideas with fresh wild caught salmon because you really can’t go wrong. I typically use foil, add some seasonings, wrap it up and throw it on the grill.

I’ll admit, at first glance I wasn’t sold on the soupy looking squash but this definitely won’t be the last time I puree it. It’s like a dipping sauce only creamier, more delicious and the texture…makes it, well amazing. Pair the pureed squash with Brussel sprouts and voila you’ve got an impressive meal. If you usually just roast or steam veggies you have to try the puree method to change things up!
