During our second night stay on the road we found a place called Total Wine and were delighted to learn there was one in the town of our destination. It did not take us long to locate it and stock up on some of our favorites. The young man who helped us find our choices (it is a big place) comes from our home town and is related to my most recent "boss." Yes, I guess it is a small world!
Entree: The local grocery had no fresh salmon so I had to resort to a package of pricy frozen coho salmon. I seasoned it with ground pepper and herbs de provence and pan seared it.
For the sauce I used a fig and ginger jam, added a splash of white wine, a cup of chicken broth and reduced. The salmon was served on a bed of arugula and topped with the sauce.
Side: Broccolli - splashed with chicken broth and microwaved.
Wine: Sonoma Cutrer Sonoma Coast - a standard favorite.
I am sure this is the first of many 2016 posts - I can only golf and exercise the knee so much!
