It’s hard to beat salt as a flavor enhancer. Instead of elaborate seasoning tonight, how about something that shines with the simple addition of this simplest ingredient?
Love to Cook: Argentine salt-roasted chicken [or, if you’ve got a day or two to prepare, salt cod – more likely to be available because it’s Lent]; fresh green salad with olive oil, lemon juice and salt
Weeknight Reality: Poached cod over wilted greens with salt & vinegar roasted potatoes
Need a Miracle: Salt and pepper steak, spinach salad, and salted caramel gelato for dessert

Deep Fried Battered Salt Cod – Christina’s Cucina (NOTE: takes extra days to prepare because the fish must be soaked – but worth the time)
Salt Cod Croquettes – Food & Wine (again, extra time to prepare but worth it)
Salt and Pepper Steak – bon appetit via Epicurious
Crispy Salt and Vinegar Potatoes – bon appetit
I shivered in those
when I heard
in the desert.
