North Africa! Silver, turquoise, white marble, with many other colors jut thrown on top!! I love north Africa and its cuisine does not disappoint! Colorful and aromatic describes it succinctly! The flavors in this salmon dish will hit the spot on a weekday night. Forget boring food, this is fast and easy and delivers flavor!! A promise of flavor is always what I give you!
WINE NOTE: Cotes De Provence seems to really compliment this dish, with it dry but aromatic flavors meeting the cinnamon and mint. A stoney Vouvray may also match or a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. !
