Yesterday it was too gorgeous to stay inside.
So we headed out to the deck armed with some white wine…
and decided to grill fish for dinner.
We soaked a cedar plank…

rubbed wild salmon with olive oil, salt and pepper…
and grilled it with lemon wedges
using THIS RECIPE as a guide…
while Jeff tended the grill, I made up some
~Creamy Tarragon Mayonnaise~
In a bowl, combine:
3 Tablespoons real mayonnaise
3 Tablespoons whole milk plain yogurt
juice and zest of 1/2 lemon
1/4 cup fresh tarragon, chopped
a couple Tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
This is a perfect accompaniment to grilled fish!
I also made some red bliss potatoes with roasted garlic,
fresh thyme, white wine and olive oil…
Just place some washed, unpeeled and halved/quartered baby bliss potatoes in a casserole pan. Place a bunch of unpeeled garlic cloves around potatoes. Drizzle with a little olive oil and dry white wine or balsamic vinegar. Sprinkle sea salt and freshly ground pepper over everything along with a little onion powder. Place fresh thyme or rosemary sprigs on top. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for an hour.
and a little romaine salad with balsamic vinaigrette…
and later, watched a favorite Audrey Hepburn movie…
How did you spend your Sunday afternoon?
