You’re going to think this is so stupid, but I just tonight used a fish-grilling basket for the first time. Duuuuh… I’ve had it for years, I’m not sure why I never bothered to use it before. Or why I suddenly decided to today. Anyhoo, it’s fabulous! I bought an early piece of Copper River king salmon at the store today, rubbed it with a bit of olive oil, gave it a sprinkle of coarse salt, and set it on a smokin’ hot grill – no sticking! In no time (well, more like 15 minutes) I had crusty-on-the-outside, buttery-on-the-inside, melt-in-your-mouth grilled salmon. Lawdy that is good stuff, dang. I also grilled skewers of tomatoes, onion, and green pepper, and roasted a big ol’ pan of skinny asparagus spears and had myself a feast, people. A healthy feast, antioxidant-packed, colorful, delicious – lovely in every way. After eating out for almost every meal last week, I’m ready for some home-cooked (grilled) healthy meals. And ’tis the season for eating as many colors as you canred berries, yellow peaches, purple eggplants, orange salmon, dark green arugula, pale green artichokes, black beans…as many as you can think of and pack into a day. Mmmm… As my old boss used to say (he was referring to beer, usually after a belch, but no matter), Good & Good for Ya. That’s the goal, friends – Good & Good for Ya. (Excuse me.)
