A Cold Weather Soup from the Hottest Restaurant in Puerto Rico...White Bean Soup from Marmalade in Old San Juan

Color abounds in Old San Juan
Old San Juan is quite a surprise.  For those of you who may have missed it, it’s the second oldest city in the Americas dating back to 1521.  It’s filled with history and vividly colored buildings on blue cobblestoned streets. One of the main drags is Calle Fortaleza, at one end of which is the Governor’s Mansion, La Fortaleza.  The stately building is the oldest continuously occupied Governor’s Mansion in the U.S, of which Puerto Rico has been a part since The Spanish-American War in 1898.  Fortaleza Street itself is lined with Souvenir Shops, Jewelry stores and Art Galleries.

Ana's Salmon Pasta with Capers, Lemon and Dill

Chewing the Fat has been on a brief hiatus as I have been traveling gathering material for some new travel pieces for The Daily Meal. Pardon my absence but I think it will be rewarded with some new food ideas for you that will be appear here in the next few weeks.  In the meantime, today’s recipe will reward you with a simple evening meal that is perfect for a Piscatorian Monday.  It’s a lovely creamy mix of fresh salmon, dill and lemon that’s a perfect companion to your favorite ‘short’ pasta and it comes together in no time.
