Salmon with Root Rubies and Pearls

Wednesday 27 June
On the day that our mortgage disappeared, we had to have some sparkles to celebrate, i.e. Segura Viudas cava.  There was also an opportune sale on salmon fillets at Kroger, so we got about a pound, cut it into two portions, and patted them with thyme, salt, and a sprinkle of sugar to make a perfect crust when pan-fried. 

Our side dish was extra special too: "Rubies and Pearls" - tiny beets and baby red turnips, each roasted in foil packets until tender, skinned (though the turnips didn't really have to be), dressed with oil, chilled, re-dressed and topped with turnip shoots from the garden.
A special meal for a special occasion.
