Two years ago is the first time we planted garlic! So last season, I had a ton of lovely garlic! The added bonus of growing your own garlic is that as part of their culture, you must remove the flower buds in June so that the bulbs will get extra large! This is what’s known as the scape of the garlic. It is absolutely delicious in so many things!! I made Garlic Scape Pesto which I used for this Chicken Florentine Pesto Pizza. I also made a couple pounds of Garlic Scape Butter!

For years I have searched fruitlessly for garlic scapes at the farmer’s markets. Apparently, garlic farmers do not realize that the scapes can be sold. (Or they hoard them all for themselves! 🙂 In which case, I don’t blame them a bit!) I would look at all of the posts on other food blogs with garlic scapes and utter a sad sigh! 😞

This Seared Salmon with Garlic Scape Butter is so tender and delicious! Of course, in all honesty my family would not complain if we had salmon 8 days a week!

  • Let salmon sit on counter for 10-15 minutes before searing.

    We usually get garlic scapes in our farm share, and have little idea what to do with them – garlic scape butter sounds like a great idea, and perfect to flavour salmon as well!

    1. Oh, how lucky you are! I have a hard time finding them! Try my garlic scape pesto too! You will love it!!
