If I was running a diner a couple decades ago, I would probably call these “salmon croquettes”. If I was running a fancy modern american place I might call them “salmon-potato dice” cause they have the fun square shape. I think salmon gnocchi is a good name for them though. This recipe is inspired by the old school salmon and pea pasta, and also by the upcoming spring when fresh peas will soon be available.
For people’s birthdays, I often play mad libs with their favorite ingredients to make a cake for them. It was my co-worker’s birthday last week and as the boss, I felt like I should make her a cake, but I didn’t know what she liked. I said I was doing a survey for my “other job” (this one), and asked some questions, like, “What is your favorite sweet, candy, nut, cereal, and snack?” After weighing the options, I thought this Lucky Charms Cheesecake would be the most fun choice.
I think this idea came from an old episode of Iron Chef where Bobby Flay cooks some pasta in jalapeno juice. One of my favorite things to cook with jalapeno is bacon, and it seems to be a very popular thing these days. There is even jalapeno crusted bacon in the grocery store! You would think that this dish is all bold intense flavors, but it actually came out more subtle and perfectly balanced. Boiling the pasta in jalapeno juice didn’t give it a crazy spicy taste, but rather imparted the true jalapeno flavor with just a little bit of the heat that it is so well known for. This was a fairly easy dish with unique and delicious flavors that I would highly suggest anyone who has a juicer to make immediately.
It\’s surprising how well teriyaki goes with pasta and alfredo sauce!
