Summer Time Salmon

"Summer time, and the living is easy. Fish are jumping and the cotton is high."

Well, I can't vouch for the height of the cotton, but the fish are certainly jumping onto our plates this summer and we are feeling pretty rich.

Leftover planked salmon is not exactly a penance, but a little variety wouldn't hurt, either; I thought of making a sauce for the cold fish and warm asparagus but didn't want anything heavy.

When I think like that, Cookiecrumb usually comes to mind - she's very creative about lightening up foods. With her as my mental muse, I spooned about a tablespoon of Greek yogurt mixed with about a teaspoon of lemon juice and minced fresh dill from my garden over the fish. Instant sauce, instant success, and we very nearly rose up singing.

That's almost enough for me to wish for summer, almost ;)

Morgan, I guess one reason I live in California is that I'm always wishing for summer.

Cookiecrumb, thanks for the inspiration, as always. And we are channeling each other again - I wrote this song-based post before I read yours. Great minds!
