This is curried salmon, as prepared by Natasha Shishkevish for the fortunate patrons of Oddfellas Cantina in Floyd, Virginia.
Two huge strips of salmon filet in a roasted curry sauce were accompanied by a pyramid of fragrant rice and sliced carrots. Indescribably delicious! Not at all what I expected of a curry dish.
I have had salmon at Oddfellas many times and this was the best version ever.
Natasha is a well-known chef in the Floyd County area and I have had the pleasure of sampling her offerings before. This was the first time I had the presence of mind to take a picture before eating.
As you can tell from my unbridled enthusiasm, I am not a food editor/ reporter/ critic or anything like that. I love good food and feel that excellence is best rewarded by promoting it widely.
I just have to keep telling myself, "shoot first – eat later". Fortunately the camera jumped into my hand and I got off several shots before hunger took over.
Kudos to Natasha! May good fortune follow you in all your endeavors.
