Salmon Burgers with a Garlic Aioli

Luckily for me, I live a train ride away from New York City. So I frequently visit with my friends- our agenda almost every time we visit we visit an art museum (we need to visit all of the before we turn 17 and we have to pay), a park, ICE CREAM, and a restaurant that we’ve heard of on instagram or a travel blog. Recently we traveled to the Whitney Museum of Art, then visited the Highline, and then seeked out Chelsea Market to have lunch. In Chelsea Market there was a restaurant called The Lobster Place. I ordered a salmon burger and then watched businessmen and women eat whole lobsters while wearing suits and chuckled a little as a waited for my order. As soon as we got our food, we found a nice spot on the Highline and chowed down. Now there are two possible scenarios that could’ve happened:

(1)we could’ve been so hungry that anything tasted good at that moment (2)the food could’ve just been that good, or (3) a combination of 1 and 2.

Pre-sliced bread? already a thing.

But this is actually the first recipe I created ever (after an over steamed cauliflower incident)- and I have yet to see anything like it. This replaces the kraft mac and cheese and dinosaur shaped chicken nugget dinners of my childhood.

Crunchy Thai Inspired Salad with a Spicy Ginger Peanut Sauce

My friends call me a bunny because I can actually just rip off a leaf from a head of lettuce and eat it without anything else.

It’s probably cause don’t really like salad dressing. Or at least, I’m really picky with it. When I go to restaurants, the conversation goes something like this:

Vegetarian “Meat” Sauce

Comfort food. You can’t really say no. It’s what I imagine as your parents or grandparents making for you and then pinching your cheek as a congratulations for cleaning your plate even when you’re 30 years old.

This will be one of the first of many installations in my “comfort food redone” series. It’s good food but even better. Now let’s get on with it.
