Cape Cod, MA – Part #2 & Creamy Salmon with Kamut, Spinach & Enoki Mushrooms

Cape Cod was a beautiful dream, the one you love to come back again and again. My friend told me that if I come to Cape Cod in October, I can pick enough wild mushrooms for the next three years. I don’t remember the last time I picked forest mushrooms, but I sure love to cook, dry, and marinade them. This would be a treat to cook mushrooms from the place as unique as Cape Cod!

We stayed in The Mansion at Ocean Edge Resort & Golf Club, Brewster, ideal resort for relaxing and enjoying a few days in the tranquility of Cape Cod. Rooms are spacious, luxurious and well furnished. However, in such an upscale hotel, I was deceived by the food in both the pub located in the mansion and The Linx Tavern at the golf. I really did not like anything I had. Tasteless fish dishes, lack of spices, something that you would’ve had in OK hotel restaurant 20 years ego.

But I do recommend the nice place for dinner The Beacon Room, in Orleans, MA – elegant seafood with an Italian bent.

Here are some healthy and simple seafood recipes that you can cook under 30 minutes.

Creamy Salmon with Kamut, Spinach & Enoki Mushrooms is an incredible dish to serve to the whole family. Kamut adds a spectacular chewy texture to this recipe. Spinach and enoki mushrooms go well with creamy salmon.
