  • Recipe: Crisp-Skinned Salmon With Summer Succotash and Creamed Corn

    Recipe: Crisp-Skinned Salmon With Summer Succotash and Creamed Corn
    Note: Thomas Keller of the French Laundry in Yountville is one of America's greatest chefs in addition to being a Food section columnist. This recipe is an example of how sometimes it is the simplest things that elevate a dish from good to great. Its secret is not in the mix of ingredients or in any fancy creative strokes; it's in the way Keller dries the skin of the fish so that it fries to a bacon-y crispness. It's a little thing, but it means so much to the dish. To dry the skin of the salmon, drag a knife blade gently but firmly over the skin several times, almost as if you are sharpening a razor on a strop. Use enough pressure to bring any water to the surface of the skin, then reverse direction to squeegee the water off the skin. Dry your blade and repeat until no more water rises to the surface. Place the filets skin-side up in a covered container that allows space between the skin and the lid to facilitate more drying until it's time to prepare them.

    When people ask me why I eat locally, at the top of my long-winded answer is that I believe local food can taste better. Locally grown produce is more likely to be fresher and small farmers generally focus on quality over quantity. Though I will be done...
