Sunday: Cedar Wrapped Salmon

I bought a pack of cedar wraps over a month ago and got to use them today!  I bought them primarily for their photographic value :)  Sometimes when I go food shopping, I see something and think… “Hmm…these will make nice pictures!”  And so I bought them. 

These cedar wraps have been soaked in water for about 20 min.

I topped the salmon with Boursin (cream cheese seasoned with herbs) and chives.

OK...just a few more shots then they're going in the oven... The radish in the background is just there because it adds color to the shots :) There...what beautiful colour!

It helps to have an extra sets of hands :)

I tried that but they were not long enough! Ta-da!  If it was summer, these would have gone on the grill and they would have pretty grill marks. Fragrant couscous on the side!  Lunch is ready!
