Roasted Salmon with artichoke salsa

Tonight is a fish night in the house. Usually I would grill but being that its -12 outside...indoor roasting at a high temp.  The salsa is a great topping after cooking.

Artichoke Salsa

3/4 c Marinated artichokes, drained, fluid reserved, chopped
2 cloves of garlic minced
1/2 red onion chopped
2 T capers
handful of cherry tomatoes halved
Some of the marinade oil
a bit of sugar (1/2 - 1 teaspoon)
S & P
and a splash of Red wine vinegar or lemon juice to adjust the acidity

Let it stew at room temperature while the fish is cooking.

I made a little soup tonight also:

Corn Cauliflower chowder

1 pkg frzn cauliflower
1 can of corn
1 carton of veggie broth
1 onion chopped
1 T olive oil
2 cloves of garlic
2 T flour
1 T dry mustard
1 t thyme
1t white pepper
3/4 c smoked gouda cheese
1/2 parmesean
1/4 heavy cream

Sautee the onion, add the garlic. 2 T flour cook a bit and then add the broth.
Throw in the corn with liquid, the cauliflower...cook till thickened and then buzz with the immersion blender.
Add the cheeses...adjust the seasoning (needed salt)  and add the cream last. One of the recipes had added mussels, not tonight but sounds good to me.
