Coriander spiced scallion pancakes,
with alllll the fixin's
My favorite food hands down, is any type of middle eastern and asian cuisines. I love the big, bold flavors, the creamy sauces, dips and spread....the BREADS.
Okay, now that I am drooling, let me go onto to introduce you to one of my favorite meals. It is hearty, but still lite and won't leave you feeling lethargic and sleepy after eating it.
Perfect for lunches and dinners and honestly there is no reason a kid shouldn't love it! (For kids, if they don't prefer salmon, I suggest using the same marinade for chicken, SO GOOD)
I used whole wheat pastry flour for these coriander spiced scallion pancakes, making them a little more dense and chewy. But so crispy on the outside. If you need a gluten free option, you should have no problem substituting with a 1-1 flour blend. I haven't tested a GF option yet thought!
You should chop your scallions finely, so they are equally distributed and you get some in every bite!
On to the Toum AKA Garlic Sauce. Garlic sauce is something I am very familiar with and something we used to have in the house a lot and it is downright delicious. It is liquid gold.
Well, One of my favorite food bloggers, Cosette, from Cosette's Kitchen, makes beautiful Lebanese dishes with a modern flare. Please take the time to check her out, her recipes and photos are stunning and delicious. When I found her Toum recipe, I knew this had to go down. I made it and it came out perfectly. It makes a large batch, but keeps for months in an air tight container in your fridge.
I use it as a marinade, for sandwich spreads and I throw it into every pasta dish I make. Check out her Toum recipe on her page for all of her tips and tricks!
You see where I'm going with this right? You take the scallion pancakes, top it with a big dollop of Toum, then......yogurt marinated salmon!
Salmon is one of my favorites, but I don't cook it often because Chris seems to have an aversion to too much salmon. However, this one is an exception. Marinating your salmon filets in whole milk yogurt, rather than oil, makes your salmon incredibly moist and is a total gam changer. . This salmon is so intensely flavorful, my mouth is literally watering as I write this.....
As I was saying before I got carried away with moist salmon, take your crispy scallion pancakes, top it with a big big dollop of Toum, flake a good portion of your yogurt marinated salmon on top of the Toum. Next, you get to top and fill with your favorites!
I topped mine with fresh greens, peas, fresh mint and a squeeze of lemon. If you want a warmer heartier feel, add roasted vegetables to it as well! My creamy two bean hummus would be a great addition to go with your pancakes as well, but there is no denying that nothing beats Cosette's Toum.
If you are looking to fend off the winter, but are longing for a taste of spring and warmer weather. This is the dish for you!
