DBF went skiing this Sunday, but two of my good friends, Shiloh & Pete, joined me at the market & we ran into some more friends, Dan & Hannah, there as well. It was a beautiful sunny day in Seattle! We picked-up a variety of yummy treats including some salmon fillets for dinner.
Pete & I hadn't seen each other in almost a year, so after going to the market we decided to spend the day together hanging out at my house. We chatted & caught-up on each others' lives & played some video games. Then we got hungry & made dinner together: grilled salmon + sunchokes with hollandaise sauce + sauteed swiss chard.
I marinated the salmon in lemon juice, olive oil, minced garlic, & Trader Joe's every day seasoning. Then I wrapped it with aluminum foil & grilled it over medium heat for about 4 minutes a side. I roasted the sunchokes in olive oil & spices for about 45 minutes at 350 degrees. I made the hollandaise sauce with the trusty recipe from my Better Homes & Gardens cookbook which never fails me. Pete was the chard man & cooked the stems up with some butter & balsamic vinegar until tender & then added the leaves until wilted.
Better Homes & Gardens Hollandaise Sauce
- 1/2 C butter
- 3 egg yolks, beaten
- 1T lemon juice
- 1T water
- salt & pepper to taste

P.S. Don't feel too bad for DBF for missing out on all of this deliciousness. He had a dinner of freshly smoked salmon at our friends' cabin in the mountains ;)
