I’d go back to Ireland in a New York minute, but it wouldn’t be for the food. Aside from a wonderful Thanksgiving feast that we prepared ourselves, a dinner at Fallon & Byrne in Dublin and an Irish Breakfast at Merv Griffin’s St. Cleran’s Hotel, we basically had dreadful food. So imagine my surprise at discovering that when Tyler Florence was working on the recipe for Salt and Pepper Salmon, his reference point was “Colcannon”. According to LaRousse, “Colcannon” is “a very popular Irish dish made from mashed potatoes and green cabbage, mixed with butter or milk and strongly flavored with chives, parsley and pepper”.
