menu plan 13: honduran baked salmon and potato soup

i love honduran food.  most people assume that it's "mexican" but it really isn't mexican at all.  it's honduran.

g's dad cooked lunch for us today.  it was delicious.  i think g's abuela makes this dish.  i'll try to recreate the recipe here for you (and me).

fish:  put two tablespoons olive oil and three tablespoons water in a covered pan on low.  add salmon wtih salt, black pepper, and bell pepper slices.  cook 20-30 minutes till done.  take the lid off now and then so the water steams the fish but doesn't boil it.

potato soup:  dice 10 small peeled red potatoes, a whole large tomato, a half a bell pepper, and a quarter cup water.  add 4 tablespoons olive oil, and two tablespoons butter, plus salt, pepper, cilantro to taste.  slow boil till it gets thick added a tiny bit of water as needed.  this will take a while.  maybe an hour.

eat the fish garnished with the soup and fresh avocado.  it truly is delicious!
