We headed back to our place early to have Nick's parents over for dinner. They had gone to Costco where they purchased a huge salmon, crab, and brussel sprouts and wanted to use our grill. That's right, they brought us food so that we would cook for them. That is fine by me.
|Nick minced up garlic to mix with EVOO and lime zest. He also stuffed the|
fish with thinly sliced onion.
|I had gnocci in the fridge that I had been meaning to make. We didn't have a|
starch so I pulled them out. I made this wine sauce as a healthier alternative to
tossing them in butter.
Red wine sauce
4 cloves garlic, minced1 14.5 oz can fire roasted tomatoes1.5 cups red wineSalt and pepper to taste
Directions:Saute garlic for 1-2 minutes. Add in tomatoes and red wine. Bring to a boil and let reduce until thick enough to coat your pasta. Season according to taste.
|Nick said that the salmon almost came out like smoked salmon in some places.|
The Fongs were fighting over the belly and more rare portions. I ate bits of the
fully cooked fish.
|Mrs. Fong knows that I love tulips so she planted me a bulb|
with some winter flowers on top. She said that she planted
150 bulbs in her front and back yard! Holy smokes! I'm going
to have to go over there when they all bloom.
