Fresh, wild grilled salmon with citrus salsa verde on the barbecue is the perfect summer meal, especially caught by our dinner guests of honor. Of course, nothing beats any kind of seafood grilled by my friend, Fred. He is the master of the barbecue.
Combine the salmon with great friends, and it’s the perfect recipe for a warm summer night. So, it took me about a nano second to accept an invitation from my friends, Dorothy and Fred, to join them for dinner.
Their cousins, Chris and Karen, ¬†had just arrived from a fishing trip in Nooksak, Canada. Lucky for us, they caught lots of king salmon and had them on ice. Doesn’t get any fresher than this.
Dorothy knows I love heirloom baby tomatoes, so the salad featured these summer gems in orange, yellow and green. Miniature mozzarella balls and fresh basil, parsley and mint growing on the deck completed the salad.
Desert was either a healthy choice of fresh raspberries or a slightly more decadent bowl of ice cream AND berries..
Great friends, wine, food and sunset. A perfect summer evening!
