A delectably, tangy citrus glaze gives tender, moist salmon fillets great flavor. Shrimp risotto is a perfect base for the distinctive fish.

Ingredients

1 grapefruit, thinly sliced
1 orange, thinly sliced
1 lemon, thinly sliced
3 qt. water
2 1⁄2 lb. sugar
2 large serrano chiles, seeded, diced
1⁄2 tsp. mustard seed, ground
1⁄2 tsp. cardamom, ground
1⁄2 tsp. allspice, ground
1⁄2 tsp. kosher salt
1 cup grapefruit juice
2 cups arborio rice
6-7 cups beef stock
1 cup white wine
2 cups diced shrimp
Zest of one orange
2 cups shiitake mushrooms, diced
3 tbsp. roasted garlic puree
12 7-oz. salmon fillets, boneless
Fresh basil leaves for garnish

Steps

1. Start marmalade 3 days in advance.  In a pot, combine fruit with water; let stand for 24 hrs.

2. Bring mixture to a boil, then cook 1 hr. Remove from heat and let stand 24 hours.

3. Over medium heat, add sugar and stir until dissolved. Add chiles, mustard seed, cardamom, allspice, salt, and grapefruit juice. Bring to a boil and cook 45 min. Reserve.

4. In a saucepan, heat 3 tbsp. oil and sauté rice 2 min. Add wine and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer.

5. Slowly add 3 cups of stock, 1 cup at a time, stirring constantly, allowing liquid to be absorbed before adding more.

6. Add shrimp, orange zest, mushrooms, and garlic puree. Continue adding remaining stock 1⁄2 cup at a time, stirring constantly, until the rice is desired texture. Reserve.

7. Season both sides of fillets; sear in an oiled pan until both sides are brown. Coat evenly with marmalade and finish in a 475° F. oven for 5 min.

8. Serve fillet on a mound of risotto with a drizzle of fish fumé. Garnish with basil chiffonade and serve.

chicken dinner

For the last three years, we’ve hosted an event called Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner. We sponsor the local chapter of Future Farmers of America to raise the chickens, and we have to arrange all the transporting from farms to the distributor, which keeps the birds in a freezer until we’re ready. We build hype by having students vote on the proprietary spice blend they would like on the chicken. It helps the nutrition team get involved in the educational process and showcase local food purchasing.

We are no longer short staffed, ever. On a given day, missing two team members from a team of 50 would leave us 96% staffed. The actual choice of wording places a positive emphasis on those that did come to serve our guests and patients. We no longer use the phrase “short staffed”; this is a game-changer when we are challenging ourselves as culture facilitators or leaders.

To make safe food as accessible as possible for our guests with allergies, we are creating an allergen-friendly kitchen this summer. Students and community members will be able to use our mobile app to place orders for allergen-friendly food and pick them up at the central kitchen. The kitchen will also produce grab-and-go options that will be distributed across campus.

When revamping an old cafeteria or building a new retail spot, the design process can feel like fitting together the pieces of a puzzle: What needs to fit in the space, and what’s the most efficient flow for staffers, cooks, diners and more?

Cathy Estes, administrative director of nutrition services at four northern Indiana hospitals that are part of the Franciscan Health network, faced the creation of a new in-house dining program at Franciscan’s Munster hospital. Amid all the big plans, design was one of the largest undertakings.
