I told N I'd make salmon for dinner. Which of course to him meant I would make my usual salmon and cous cous en papillote. But I decided to make something different tonight. I knew he would be a little disappointed but if I don't try something new how on earth am I meant to find blog posts to write! So I tried my luck. I decided not to veer to far from the standard meal and I still made the fish 'en papillote' so that poor N wouldn't have a shock. The result was pretty good with fresh and crisp flavours. N's big thumbs up sign and grin on his face when he tucked in was just the validation I needed.
