Watch this and rock out. Now.
Tonight. Cannot wait.
Tonight’s Blue Apron meal was chicken, spinach and artichoke casserole with bechamel sauce. I was super stoked to make bechamel sauce but sadly I did not adore this dish.
I have never prepped artichokes and I don’t think I removed enough of the outer leaves as some pieces remained tough and chewy. My pal who is trying out Blue Apron herself recommended subbing in marinated artichokes and quartering them for more even distribution in the dish and to add flavor. Good tip for next time!
The bechamel was made with Hungarian paprika, which I was also excited to use as I’ve heard it’s more flavorful and sweet red peppery than normal paprika. I seemed to make the sauce ok; it was smooth and not lumpy and used a nice rich butter and whole milk but the sauce just seemed pretty bland. Perhaps I should have seasoned more.
Overall I was not happy with this dish. Better luck next time: on Friday or Saturday night I will be making the Swedish meatballs and kale!

Blue Apron this week: tonight was Ginger-Soy Glazed Salmon with Broccoli Rabe and Soba Noodles. Holy crud was this amazing! The glaze was composed of black bean garlic sauce, sesame oil, lime juice and zest, sriracha, ginger, garlic and scallions.
I forgot the lemon zest in the glaze but it was still fabulously flavorful. I also REALLY need to get a non-stick pan as the salmon has the skin on and our anodized pans cling to the skin. I used our wok for this dish which worked out but it would nice to have a nice size non-stick for this sort of thing.
Overall, this was one of the easier recipes and yielded a delicious layered dish. 9/10 would make again!
