We buy some frozen sockeye salmon and sort through the uneven portions in the bag. We decide that John will have the larger ones and I will have the smaller ones. I make the tartar sauce that the Fish Market has. (I have gotten this recipe from one of the cooks at the restaurant.) Next I steam some new potatoes, and string and quickly saute the snow peas. In the meantime John cooks the salmon mostly on the skin side with a quick flip on the other side at the end.  The whole dinner takes less than a half an hour to make.

As a person who loves vegetables the most, I have to say that I really, really enjoy the snow peas and the potatoes.  This is probably because I put the tartar sauce on them as well. John is not totally pleased with the quality of the salmon. But I think the most important thing is that we are eating almost all of our meals at home which gives a chance to control what goes in them.  Plus, it’s fun and we enjoy the cooking and being with each other.

Oh, we also have a fancy wine for our dinner night.  It is a Chateau St. Jean 2012 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir. It goes really well with our salmon dinner.
