Seared Salmon with Horseradish Sauce

One of the last of the plated dishes for a while. His recipe testing at home is no more and I can't be bothered to make so many components for one dish.

I'm more of a:

'I made a apple pie!'

'What did you pair it with?'

'....a fork'

kind of girl.


Stockholm and Copenhagen were beautiful. The cold weather and rain was a bit much coming from a hot spell in California, but it couldn't ruin cities like that. Have a few photos to post from the trip.... sometime soon.
