Hiya, and happy Tuesday!
This past week was another tough one, as far as dates go for us. Nathan had this lovely cold (and by lovely, I mean terrible.. he was nice enough to sleep in the other room so his coughing out a lung wouldn’t keep me up all night). Any kind of date together was definitely a struggle. We did have some friends over for one Canucks game.. then I headed to a Birthday party sans mon date.
So my solution? A delicious dinner for us to enjoy while watching another Canucks playoff game. Seeing a pattern here?
The main course was my very favourite.. Pan seared salmon with a grape salsa (best salsa EVER! Get the recipe after the jump), rice, and green beans. Nathan, who apparently doesn’t like fish much, thinks this may be his favourite meal that I make! Nice. There’s so much that I love that he hates.. but hey, I’m the cook here, so he can live with it ;-)
In a small bowl, mix together
1 cup quartered red seedless grapes,
1 shallot, minced,
1/2 tsp salt,
2 tbsp chopped fresh basil
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar.
That’s it. You can let it sit a bit while you make your meal, to let the flavours blend together.
