Lamb with Asian Pear & Kiwi Salsa

Tonight I'm making lamb with Asian Pear & Kiwi Salsa. I absolutely love the way the fresh fruit mixes with the lamb. It's the perfect spring-time dinner! Enjoy your weekend Foodies! I know I'm going to enjoy setting my kitchen up again!

Grilled Salmon with Lime Butter

I'm so glad this moving stuff is almost over! Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate with my move over the weekend, so I was pretty behind schedule. Last night I got a lot done, and I should be completely done after this weekend. Why does moving always have to be a pain? I'm cooking dinner at my new place this evening, and it's going to be an easy one as most of my things are still packed. I can't wait to finally be settled in!

Grilled Salmon Recipe From Lobster Gram

  • 1 large garlic clove, chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 lbs salmon filets
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons finely grated fresh lime zest
  • 6 tablespoons lime butter sauce
Recipe Directions
Puree garlic with lime juice, salt, and pepper in a blender until smooth. With motor running, add melted butter and blend until emulsified, about 30 seconds. Prepare grill for cooking over medium-hot charcoal (moderate heat for gas). Season salmon all over with salt and pepper, then grill, flesh sides down, on lightly oiled grill rack (covered only if using gas grill) 4 minutes. Turn salmon fillets over and grill (covered only if using gas grill) until just cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes more. Sprinkle fillets with zest and top each with 1 tablespoon lime butter sauce.
