People often tell me their family will not eat leftovers. My response is always, “What do you consider leftovers, and how do you serve them?” I think of leftovers as ingredients. The key to getting the family to approve of a second serving is to transform the leftovers into something new, something so good no one will think of them as leftovers. Eventually, you will find you want to make “leftovers “on purpose.

Ingredients

Leftover salmon with lemon and thyme

Pasta

Heavy whipping cream

Instructions

1. Cut up the leftover salmon and add it to a frying pan along with any leftover juice. If you don’t have any leftover pan juice, you can add a pat of butter.

2. Add some heavy whipping cream. Just enough to create a sauce.

3. Warm the ingredients over medium heat and toss with pasta. 

4. Optional: add fresh thyme, parsley, a splash of white wine, or fresh lemon juice.

Notes

If you have a small amount of leftover salmon, make a small amount of pasta and serve a few other simple dishes to create a satisfying family dinner.

I often cook "au pif," as we say in France, which means cooking without an exact recipe and by "feel" using your intuition.  You’ll often find guidelines in many recipes versus exact quantities.  Write to me here if you have any questions about the recipes.

  • A Real Game Changer

    "We have made a lot of progress over here under your care. We are now all eating from the same “pot” which I was surprised how much my kids loved. They were so excited when I put the food in the middle of the table. They asked for it the next day, Can we do that special fancy dinner thing where we have a feast? It really is such a better ritual—passing the food around and all sharing from the same platter, a real game changer."
