This week, our Lufa Farms order included organic Cortland apples from Verger Maia, organic Spartan apples from Verger Biologique Maniadakis, organic Honeycrisp apples from Pomibec, Bartlett pears from Warner’s farm and unsweetened apple sauce made with Jersey Mac apples by Catherine Cafiti. So we’ll be having roasted salmon in spiced apple sauce on a bed of potatoes and apples with a fennel, apple and pear salad on the side.
For the main course of our fall-themed Sunday dinner, we went with a show-stopper: a large filet of roasted salmon in spiced apple sauce. Tangy and plump, salmon is roasted under a cover of fennel seed-spiced, unsweetened Jersey Mac apple sauce. It rests on a bed of thinly sliced red-skinned potatoes and a mix of Spartan and Cortland apples, lightly drizzled with olive oil and seasoned with salt. The result is a creamy, perfectly seasonal dish that feels decadent despite being low in fat, but loaded with nutrients.
