baked salmon, lovage, micro scallion; celeriac frites; greens

The entire meal was much more successful than I had expected while I was still putting it together in my head little than an hour earlier.

It all started with the salmon fillet, which I had bought that afternoon, and at a very good price. The mustard greens, picked up at the Greenmarket 3 days earlier, seemed a natural to go with the salmon.

I had several choices for a second vegetable, but I went with the celery root I’d been saving for a week or so, turning it into frites de céleri-rave (oven-roasted), whose sticks are shown below as they looked on the pan just before they went into the oven.
