This was a big hit. Very refreshing and the salmon was perfectly moist. It was the first time I'd brined a salmon and it was worth the extra time. I used the mandolin to shave the fennel. I think this is better than a fine chop."

Sublime. This is my first skillet cornbread and it could not have come out any better. It was easy and is impressive. I was concerned about the bread sticking to the skilled because my skillet is that that well seasoned, but there's so much butter in this recipe, I think that would be pretty impossible. The cast iron skillet is so versatile and inexpensive....
