Roasted Duck and Spring Vegetables 鴨と春野菜のロースト

ファーマーズマーケットで季節の地元野菜を買い、 最低限の手間で料理するのは何ともカリフォルニア住まいの醍醐味(の一つ)だと思います。これはまず新タマネギに軽く塩を振ってグリルパンで焼き目をつけたもの。香ばさとタマネギの甘みが嬉しいです。

One of the great things (one of the many, anyway) about living in California - finding fresh, locally grown, seasonal vegetables at a farmer's market and cooking them in a minimalist fashion. Here's a couple of spring onions grilled with just a sprinkling of salt. Great mix of caramelized savory and sweetness of fresh onions.

Snap peas, sautéd lightly in olive oil with a dash of salt and pepper.

...and served the veggies above (with roasted beets - no photos) with pan roasted duck breast, again seasoned with just a pinch of salt and pepper, cooked to just a bit beyond rare. Paired with a nice Napa Zinfandel for a satisfying springtime dinner.
