The goal of our culinary enrichment program is to encourage, motivate and inspire our residents to learn about cooking techniques and healthful meal options.
The other day, we took a foray into the wide world of salmon, discussing its nutritive value, versatility and a few preparations.
We started our lesson by enjoying a little smoked salmon together (a first for a few of the guys)!
Moving on to the practical, we learned a classic cooking technique: cooking fish en papillote (in paper). Cooking salmon (or almost any fish) in parchment paper is a fast and easy method that is accessible, healthful and yields impressive results.
The salmon is enclosed in a folded envelope, along with aromatic vegetables, fresh herbs, and citrus juice and gently steamed. 10 minutes later, we were all rewarded with a satisfying, healthy meal that was good enough to put a nice smile on Mike’s face!
A good time was had by all, and we look forward to future classes and the fellowship and support offered by our brothers on their journey!
