We all make mistakes. And fortunately, some can be fixed.
I happen to love salt, And I like to only use French grey salt, which has so much more flavor than Kosher or regular sea salts. My husband and one son are not big on salt whereas my oldest is more like me.
So the other night I was fixing a pan of cauliflower, olive oil, salt and pepper to roast in the oven. In preparing it, I wasn’t paying as much attention as I should have been and I immediately knew I over salted. And my husband HATES that. I could already hear the coming comments.
So what to do? When the cauliflower was done, I pulled the pan out and lifted each piece of cauliflower out with tongs – no scraping of the olive oil and all that salt with a spatula to put on the platter. No no.Then I squeezed some fresh lemon juice over all.
It worked! No comments from the peanut gallery. They ate it all up!
