A trip to the grocery with no recipe in mind can sometimes result in a great dinner. Such was the case last night. Entering the store, I had a yen for certain flavors, and before you could say ‘carambola’, there were salmon filets, zucchini, English peas, mint, and French Feta in the cart! Here’s what came together in the kitchen shortly after.
Slice two zucchini, throw in a very hot saute pan with some olive oil, sear and move pieces around quickly with a wooden spoon for about 2 minutes (no more.) Remove from heat and pour into a large bowl. They will continue to cook off the heat, but still maintain their crispness and not go limp. Add the shelled peas and small chunks of French Feta. Tear a small handful of mint leaves into pieces with your hands and sprinkle. Stir to combine, so the feta breaks down a little and the mint oils are released. Add a tiny bit of salt and a few turns of black pepper, to your taste.
