THIS WEEK: Artichoke-Stuffed Salmon with Rosemary Shrimp and Spaghetti Squash from the New England Culinary Institute in Montpelier, Vt.
Ever wish you went to culinary school to reveal that inner chef? Well, you can try to conjure up that artist right in your own kitchen. This week’s recipe is “stolen” from the New England Culinary Institute (NECI). Culinary schools are great places to enjoy a fine dining experience as well as try out new culinary creations. Artichoke-Stuffed Salmon with Rosemary Shrimp and Spaghetti Squash is a relatively simple recipe for something that's as tasty and appealing as this is.
