Happy New Year! L’shannah Tovah!

September 28th, 2011

So, when my friend started talking about her family’s celebration of Rosh Hashanah… I was reminded of this huge feast my roommates had a couple years ago…

I decided that we needed some Challah. For Rosh Hashanah, it is shaped into a circle to represent creation (and correct me if I’m wrong- My knowledge of Jewish practice is coming mostly from Google).  I tried a six strand braid for the first time… needs some work but still delicious.

The food focuses on sweet dishes to symbolize an upcoming sweet year.  The traditional ones are  apples dipped in honey and honey cake.  Some families also serve fish. Taking this into account and trying to be healthy I made a simple beet salad and Orange-Ginger-Garlic Poached Salmon.

Orange-Ginger-Garlic Poached Salmon

1 cup orange juice
1 cup water
1 large garlic clove, sliced
1 in ginger, sliced
salt and pepper
4 4oz pieces of salmon

1. Bring all the ingredients except the fish to a boil in a deep frying pan.
2. Let it boil for about 10 minutes and add water if it reduces too much.
3. Add the salmon and boil for about 20 minutes or until the salmon is cooked.
