This pan-seared salmon dish served at Terra Bistro in the Vail Mountain Lodge & Spa is a dynamic and flavorful entree. The restaurant is known for its lighter and healthier approach to food, and this rendition is no exception. Managing Partner Kevin Nelson and his team always go for clean flavors that allow the main elements of a dish to shine through.
Here, the sustainably raised Scottish salmon sits over a savory and smooth Yukon gold potato chowder. Fresh thyme creates an unforgettable aroma from the moment the plate is set on the table, and a healthy portion of garlic sautéed spinach and grilled leaks top off each bite with texture.
