Tonight's Dinner: June 3, 2013

As I said in my last post, we planned to have Nick's family over for dinner.  I had picked up a giant wild salmon at Costco.  Normally I go for farmed salmon, but there were piles and piles of salmon so I just picked one up without looking at the label thinking that it had to be farmed.  It wasn't until we saw how red the flesh was that we realized that it was wild salmon.  Nick is both the fish and grill master in our house so he was the mastermind behind this gorgeous salmon.  I made the kale, quinoa, and watercrest sauce.

Lemon, garlic, dill, salt and pepper.

Can you believe that this is an entire bag of baby kale from Costco?! It sure
did shrink down.

Look how red the flesh is.

Mr. Fong doesn't that weird issue where he doesn't want his food touching.
He was trying to take a picture of the color of the salmon.

Back to fish tacos for me.  Nick commented that he thought
that I ate more fish than he did.
