Tried out a yummy new recipe last night from one of my Cooking Light cookbooks. I just went to Costco the other day and bought a bunch of salmon. I usually do my bbq recipe which I know my husband loves (I’ll give that recipe out next week), but I was aching to try something different.
Our neighbor John who is an organic gardener, gave us a few fresh cucumbers so I thought I would try to utilize those. Found this great recipe for Salmon with Cucumber Salad and Dill Sauce…so good!!! I didn’t have fresh dill on hand so I just cut down the amount of dill a bit and used dry instead. You cut down the amount of herbs in the recipe when you use dry because the flavor is more intense. I’m sure it would be a bit yummier with fresh, but I wasn’t about to pack up the baby to run to the store for one thing.
We had some fresh La Brea Bakery bread to go with it and a nice bottle of Pinot Noir (we prefer red even with fish). The dish was pretty light and could have used a carb…maybe a nice wild rice, but we gave ourselves two pretty big portions of fish. So it was filling for us. Oh and FAST…this recipe was a breeze to make and oh so quick! Definitely a do-again.
