My daughter and her boyfriend had the day together yesterday which doesn't happen often. They both work such long hours that when they get a day off, they usually just want to relax. I offered to make them a good dinner. Her boyfriend loves birds and that is one thing I have an over abundance of around here. My bird population is out of control! So, yesterday evening, they went to the guest house with binoculars and a bird book and I served them dinner. I was so busy that I forgot to take pics. I made these caraway breadsticks and wrapped them in proscuitto.
I made rice cakes and topped them with a truffled parsnip puree and brown butter and thyme seared scallops. I made lots of other appetizers for them too.
This salmon was a big hit and it is so easy to make:
Preheat oven to 400F.
In a small bowl, mix the garlic, lemon juice, honey, butter, cayenne pepper and salt together. Whisk to combine well.
the salmon with cold water and pat dry with paper towels. Transfer the
salmon to a big sheet of aluminum foil and drizzle the garlic lemon
butter mixture on the salmon. Coat well. Top with parsley. Wrap the
salmon up tightly and bake for 20 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked
Unwrap the foil, garnish with sliced lemon and serve immediately.
