Cucumber & Onion Salad with Smoked Salmon

 

Due to a kitchen remodel I’ll be without a kitchen for a few weeks, so I’ve asked some friends to keep my virtual kitchen going with some of their fabulous recipes.  My first friend is Su Anne, a very special person in my life.

Southern Fried Catfish & Carrot Raisin Salad

Crispy southern fried catfish fillets

 

Today we’re taking a couple of virtual road trips. Our first trip is picnic of southern fried chicken over to Wok With Ray where you meet Ray (if you haven’t already), a great blogger friend, and a wonderful chef and caterer. Ray features some of the most amazing Filipino and Asian dishes and his photography is beautiful! In May I gave you a taste of his Sweet and Garlicky Pork Chops in my Celebration of Garlic post.

Our second trip is to Black Lake, a lake in north Louisiana where I learned to fish and which supplied my family with all of the catfish and bluegill (bream) that we could eat. Once there I’ll be serving up a picnic of Southern Fried Catfish and Carrot & Raisin Salad.
