This morning, I discovered a sad little 1-pound cabbage languishing in our vegetable crisper. It was too small for my favorite braised cabbage recipe so I decided to sauté it up with some butter and sliced onions.
I love onions sautéed in butter…
Once the onions were translucent, I added my coarsely chopped cabbage. I used my little 8-inch cast iron skillet, but it’s really too small for a pound of cabbage – I’ll use a bigger one next time. I seasoned everything with salt and pepper and mixed everything around so the fat would be well distributed. Then, I lowered the heat to low and plopped on a lid for a few minutes so the cabbage would soften.
I topped half of the cabbage with some smoked wild Alaskan king salmon and kept the other half for one of my packed lunches during my workweek.
Yummy! (The salmon was a little on the salty side, but hey – that’s how smoked salmon tastes.)1
