A romantic meal: salmon with a vegetable bouquet

Men & chef 2

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) Things are heating up in the kitchen of the Meijer Innovation Center in Grand Rapids. Chef Jen is showing three West Michigan men how to prepare and elegant meal just in time for Valentine’s Day.

Tommy from Star 105.7 learns how to prepare salmon on a bed of ancient grains. The grains are lentils and barley, and you can cook them in the same way that you would make pasta. A beautiful way to prepare a side of vegetables is by making a bouquet. Slice some vegetables up into sticks and tie them with a softened leek, then blanche them in boiling water for a few minutes. The salmon can be browned in a pan and baked in the oven. Finish off the dish with beurre blanc, which is a white butter sauce.
