Salmon in a Pinch

I’ve been working like mad to get ready for a show, so dinners have been necessarily limited in scope. This time, a good hunk of salmon in the oven for a few minutes with ras-el-hanout, salt, pepper, herbs, and paprika got just firm while I steamed Japanese yams and sweet potatoes to whip together and I busted out some mash since summer is ending and the simple pleasure of fresh bitter greens is about to become a luxury. As tasty as it was, it cried out for a red wine-based sauce, but time alas did not allow for such embellishments. Our very last Domaine Cheze Saint-Joseph “Cuvée Ro-Rée” more than made up for it, though; I love this wine, and will miss it until I find it again. For 20 bucks, it was the best buy of last year. I should have bought two cases.
