Grilled Salmon wi Lemon/Honey Dijon Sauce

The weather here in our little sunshine get away, has been miserable (I know I can hear you, my friends up north - "stop whining").  But, according to the news, January was the wettest month since records have been kept. So, so  much for the warm weather and pool being good rehab for my knee - not!
I have managed to enjoy my favorite activities, cooking, and dining and a few rounds of golf.  So life is good.

 Two weeks ago I made a salmon with a similar sauce and noted that I had found it in Cooking for Two. It was very tasty so we thought we would like to dine on the same dish. Well after both of us scoured the cookbook twice, we found it nowhere! So I made my own!

Entree: Grilled Salmon wi Lemon Honey Dijon Sauce. The salmon was spayed with Pam evoo and sprinkled with fresh ground pepper. It was grilled for 7 minutes, flipped at 4 minutes.


 The Sauce: Thinly sliced shallot and diced garlic were cooked over low heat in a tad of
 butter and splash of evoo. When soft,
 two tablespoons of  lemon juice, a fourth of a cup
 of white wine and a tablespoon of honey dijon
 were stirred in and heated till blended.
Wines: We had half bottles left from a neighbor hood party over the weekend, so spouse had red and I had white.  His Etude Pinot Noir and mine, Cutrer, not Sonoma Cutrer, but it's upgrade, the Cutrer!  As mentioned in previous blogs, one of my favorites.
