If you are like me, you are almost always cooking dinner. Sometimes life happens, and before you know it, dinner is upon you and you don't have the time to cook something life changing. On those days I usually cook a great fish. Sometimes, I surprise my Man with gourmet take out instead. It saves my energy for a night with my man, and that brings a smile to his face.
Romantic Tip: On one of those extra busy days, skip the kitchen duties and bring home great take-out, and light some candles for a private picnic in your house, wear something sexy!
We are fortunate to have a wild caught Alaskan Seafood booth at our local farmer's market. This week I picked up half a sockeye Salmon and quickly got busy making a nice meal for my hubby. I love days I get fresh fish, because I can throw together a fabulous meal in under 30 minutes. Enjoy!
