More Omega-3s

This time, it really is a salmon fillet. It doesn't look as much like a sweet potato as a sweet potato looks like salmon. But close.
If you read the previous post and comments, you'd see that we created and crowd-sourced a new recipe: just sub salmon for the potato. And for god's sake, use a little bacon.
Cranky grilled the salmon in our little Smoky Joe, outdoors. He added a handful of soaked alder chips to the hot coals, and a little smoke flavor definitely found its way into the fish. Not too much. Perfect.
Meanwhile, I cooked and chopped bacon, hacked chives, and loving-spoonfulled the sour cream.
Verdict? Really good. Not high-end restaurant good, but secret cult local diner good.

So tidy, your little baconettes.

Zia: Ha ha. Thanks. Meet Denise.

Zoomie: I have fine toolwork duty in this kitchen. Otherwise Cranky just whacks food into unappetizing large chunks. Merci.

Denise: I couldn't wait! It was farmers market today, and bingo. Meet Zia.

Secret cult hole-in-the-walls are often the better dining experience.

Ooo, it must be a bloke-thing, the cutting into chunks, Mr Brown does that too!

Mouse: Oh, I agree about that. I'm just pleased that I can cook secret cult local diner food at home!
As for cutting food small vs. big, it is a bloke thing, and I presume it's because they want to eat SOON, no screwing around with the knife. Also, they like big bites.
