I love salmon. It's no secret. I have a number of salmon recipes and this one is quite similar to others I've made before. I used a cedar plant to "smoke" the fish for 20 minutes. I used dill (I often do, I love the pairing of dill and salmon). I added lemon and onion and garlic - a few of my favorite ingredients. Plus salmon is so South Beach Diet friendly, it's no wonder it graces our table as often as it does.
Annapolis Valley. I've been there several times over the years of visiting Joanna and Ezra, usually for apple picking in the Fall and I always stop at The Tangled Garden, (where my favorite jellies in the entire world come from) and it always makes me think of the Niagara region of Ontario for its lush orchards and farmlands. That reminds me, it's almost Apple Blossom Time and I'm planning on checking it out. What a glorious adventure that will be!
And because dinner is loaded with lovely herbs - dill for the salmon and mint & basil for the salad, it's a definite Weekend Herb Blogging entry if ever there was one. Kalyn at Kalyn's Kitchen started this excellent event that just keeps getting better and better. This time around it's hosted by Pat over at Up a Creek Without a Pati. Thanks for hosting!
