Creamy Salmon Piccata

Creamy Salmon Piccata

I’m just nuts about my classic Italian leaning Old School Chicken Piccata, so it stands to reason I’d be crazy about this twist, Creamy Salmon Piccata. If you love fresh, lemony, garlicky flavors and you love salmon, I think this will be a winner for you! The touch of cream in the recipe, btw, rounds out those flavors and takes the whole dish next level.

I miss my little Iowa hometown still, even though I haven’t lived there for ages, and even though I’m starting to get comfortable with Georgia. And one of the things I miss most (beside friends and family) is some of the classic Midwestern food favorites. And of those favorites, I especially miss the humble Hot Roast Beef Sandwich.

Probably the only thing better would be having more of them and having them more often! That’s where this cheaper knock-off, Poor Man’s Burnt Ends comes in.
