Salmon & Margaritas

Two or three times a month my buddy Joe comes over and we solve the earths problems, discuss the stock market, make any improvements to our computers (he's a guru), and indulge in a south-of-the-border libation or some.  He's retired and his wife generally gets home late, so he often stays for supper and after Bev's steak request the other day, she wanted grilled salmon.  While I sometimes brine salmon, I don't believe it needs much flavor enhancement, so tonight it got S&P and mayonaise on the meat and oil on the skin.

Then it went on the grill and as soon as the skin released, I flipped it and gave the meat the same treatment as the other side.  Bev wanted some blackening seasoning on hers.

I cooked it to 135* internal and we served it up with baked sweet potato and caesar salad.

With three of my favorite things, is was a delicious meal.

Feel good four of five.

Whenever I'm disappointed with my spot in life, I stop and think about little Jamie Scott. Jamie was trying out for a part in the school play. His mother told me that he'd set his heart on being in it, though she feared he would not be chosen..

On the day the parts were awarded, I went with her to collect him after school. Jamie rushed up to her, eyes shining with pride and excitement.. 'Guess what, Mom,' he shouted, and then said those words that will remain a lesson to me....'I've been chosen to clap and cheer.'

Thanks for tuning in and sharing the trip with us.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.

  1. Looks yummy Larry! I love good salmon on the grill.

  2. A great meal-even better when shared with friends.


    P.S. I liked the ending...about Jaime. Bravo.

  3. Love grilled salmon, especially blackened! Looks scrumptious and the Margarita looks good, too! Cheers!

  4. Larry, Great looking salmon filets! I had a salmon dish out in a restaurant the other day...salmon filet topped with spinach, gorgonzola cheese and bacon. It was the best yet! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  5. I agree, salmon doesn't need much seasoning. Loving the "feel goods".

  6. We love grilled salmon and hope to keep the grill going as long as possible.

    Another wonderful story!

  7. My favorite way to prepare salmon is grilled with a little salt, pepper and olive oil. I've never tried using mayo. Sounds delicious.

  8. If you don't cook it to at least 135f, will you catch "salmonella"? (ha ha ha, couldn't resist)

    Glad that falling tree didn't take out your grill!

  9. Larry, I think that would be anyones favorite meal. The salmon looks gorgeous and I love the way you have use mayonnaise to season and seal it. That is a great idea. I hope you have a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary

  10. YUM!! Next time you can invite me :)

  11. Salmon (and now redfish) is my favorite fish! Although we're having pizza tonight, I'd trade for your salmon right now! I've never heard of mayo on salmon. It must taste creamier then ever! Hope that you and Bev are enjoying this Christmas season!
