This one is not really a recipe...think of more as a menu idea. I didn't do the cooking so I can't tell you exactly how it was done. I can tell you that it was highly delicious.
I'm fortunate to have a partner who LOVES to cook fantastic meals on his days off. It helps him relax and I can't complain (okay, I sometimes complain about the dishes, but I shouldn't. I've been trying not to.)
Sunday night he made salmon and asparagus. Easily one of my favorite meals. We haven't had salmon in a REALLY long time. It's not exactly local and we have a hard time justifying the purchase when it's so much more expensive here than it is back home.
Nonetheless, J. surprised me and came home from the grocery store Sunday morning with a wild caught salmon. And he even took L. with him to the store. Am I lucky or what? They had a good time. I did the dishes without someone unloading the dishwasher as fast as I load it. Definitely a win, win situation. Not that doing dishes is my idea of a fun morning home alone, but it was more enjoyable than the alternative and I listened to a book on CD.
Anyhow, back to dinner.
We had grilled salmon seasoned with salt, pepper, and lemon.
Asparagus (not sure why I can't get this picture right side up...it's right side up everywhere else) seasoned with a little butter, pepper, and balsamic vinegar.
And grilled pineapple...thick slices put directly on the grill. Nothing added.
Definitely going to repeat the grilled pineapple on a frequent basis. It was soooo good.
L. enjoyed the meal. This was her first time eating salmon and she ate a lot of it. Every few bites she said, "mmmmmm, yummmmm, yummmm."
I have to admit, so did I.
