The hoisin sauce, sherry and soy sauce make a nice counterpoint to the salmon’s richness.
If you don’t have hoisin sauce you can use another purchased barbecue sauce, or regular ketchup. If using ketchup I would add a dash of Worcestershire sauce.
We grill a lot of salmon in the summer and I try to vary … Continue reading.....
If it’s Friday it must be fish night.
In case you think we are in a rut, I make fish on Friday because that’s the day I do the shopping.
I like fresh fish.
I also like to find ways to use the abundance of cherry tomatoes a single plant will produce.
This year I planted a variety called Black … Continue reading.....
Mon mari hardly ever complains about ‘Fish Hell Day’ when he gets to cook it on the grill.
And especially not when it’s salmon.
We eat a lot of salmon.
It does get to be a challenge to find new ways to fix it. Some are more successful than others.
This is one of the better ones…. I’m really starting … Continue reading.....

I did modify the recipe slightly (of … Continue reading.....

As I was stir-frying the chard to have with the salmon (the rest of the dinner, after the Stuffed Zucchini to start) I decided the garlic chips would add just the right amount of crunch and flavor.
Thus a dish is born…..
For … Continue reading.....
Our mini-vacation is over.
We had a wonderful time playing tour guide and tourist for 4 days.
We had a wonderful time sampling a variety of wine (and, just perhaps, a wee bit too much) for 5 nights.
Our weather was perfect, the sunsets were beautiful and the dogs fairly well-behaved.
What more could one ask for?
We’re not quite … Continue reading.....
I got the idea for this from Chef Dennis.
The recipe is changed, of course…. to what I had in the pantry since I already had the salmon. Next time I may add the feta like he did.
And he used parsley….. Mine isn’t big enough to cut yet but I have lots of oregano.
But that’s what recipes … Continue reading.....
