Grilled Salmon with Orzo, Feta, and Red Wine Vinaigrette

As I recovered from an illness my husband stepped up and did a whole lotta cooking. I was very thankful and well fed too! I did miss puttering around the kitchen but am happy to say I was able to contribute for part of this meal.

This is a Curtis Stone recipe that is easy to prepare.  Doug grilled the salmon and I worked on the orzo and spinach portion.  The feta cheese really enhances the flavor of the spinach and tomatoes.  It was good.

 The recipe may be found HERE at Curtis Stone's website.  Now, the recipe for the Mai Tai is as follows:

Mai Tai

1 shot each of two rums.  (Appletones and Anjeo)
1/2 oz. Cointrau
1/2 oz. Orgeat
1/4 oz. Simple Syrup

Pour it over ice and add a little umbrella if you want to jazz it up.

So glad you're feeling better now. We're grilling salmon this week, I think I'm going to make the same side dish, it looks so good. Mai Tai? Yes, please.

Good to hear you're feeling better, and what a guy, stepping up to the plate like that :) I keep a bit of feta on hand to perk up the odd salad or two, but haven't tried it with spinach as yet. Looks good.

Tina said...

A Mai Tai can be good for what ails ya, I guess. Lol. Thanks for the nice comments and the good wishes. I am on the mend!
