I had the opportunity to sample a tasty dish this past weekend here at the resort. It was Atlantic salmon served with natural juices. The chef, Mr. Bubble Bee, has a unique way of vacuum sealing the salmon so it maintains a flaky texture and fresh cooked salmon flavor. He's super famous for his tuna, which is served in water or oil, but I have to say this cutting edge venture into salmon will really take him to the next level with his finicky diners.
Saturday, or what I now call Salmon Saturday, started off with me having writer's block. I was sitting in front of the computer trying to blog and just decided that I needed something from room service to get my creativity flowing. Upon delivery, the first thing I noticed was the presentation. The finely flaked fish was placed on a hand painted plate from Japan with a design of a cat on it. I was stunned that the executive chef would send such a fine piece of china for a room service order. (Have I mentioned lately how much I love this resort?) The plate was also salmon in color complimenting the vibrant color of this delectable fish.
I first smelled the fish and sat back to let it's aroma prime my palate. I then took a small bite testing its texture and temperature. It was exquisite. From there, I couldn't control myself. I ate and ate and ate as if it was Thanksgiving dinner! I think at one point I even dropped some from my mouth because it was so exciting. When I was finished, I sat back thoroughly pleased with my meal, but too tired to blog. After a meal that wonderful, a nap is necessary, aye.
So if you're ever in Las Vegas, stop by the resort and request Chef Bumble Bee's Atlantic Salmon. You won't regret it!
