How to Make Salmon-Filled Snow Peas
- 1Prepare Salmon Filled Snow Peas:
Combine salmon mixture thoroughly in food processor. Break off the ends of snow peas and remove the strings. Blanch snow peas (see below what blanching is) for 1 minute and drain in colander, rinse under cold running water and pat dry with paper towels. Using a pastry tube fitted with star tip, press salmon mixture into snow peas.
Blanching is a cooking term that describes a process of food preparation wherein the food substance is rapidly plunged into boiling water and then removed after a brief, timed interval and then plunged into iced water or placed under cold running water. Blanching rapidly heats and then cools the food. This allows the food, usually fruits and vegetables, to firm up and makes the food's natural flavour more pronounced.
