I've always thought it would be neat to visit Iceland, Scandanavia and other Northern parts of Europe.
|Iceland the place I'd most like to visit, It looks like Tolkien's Moddle Earth|
|A Scandanavian Castle|
Since summer is such a fleeting moment in these frigid countries big Summer festivals and celebrations are common.
|And since its a virtual vacation you need not dance around the May Pole|
Fish is a popular food choice in Scandanavia and other Nordic countries and dill is a popular herb there. So I decided to make Roast Salmon with Cream Fraiche and Dill for my virtual vacation.
Roast Salmon With Cream Fraiche and Dill
Kosher or sea salt
1 tub Vermont Creamery cream fraiche, about a cup
1/4 cup chopped Fresh Dill
Preheat to 425 and line a baking sheet with foil. Place the fish fillets on the sheet skin side down and season with salt and pepper. Spread with the cream fraiche, trying to cover in a think but complete layer. Roast for about 12-15 minuts until the fish is cooked through. Test for doneness by seeing if the fish flakes in the thickest part.
Sprinkle with dill before serving.
Serve with boiled new potatoes tossed with butter, salt, and dill.
