My hubby’s request for dinner: fish and rice. I think we needed something light. We spent the last couple of nights dining out.
I love the “French in a Flash” column on Serious Eats. Kerry Saretsky has great ideas for simple, elegant dishes.
So – I decided to try out her mustard salmon and asparagus recipe.

I had a yummy birthday weekend!
My birthday wish: hiking with my friends and eating fresh oysters.
We did both yesterday in Tomales Bay.

I found my new favorite recipe for adobo thanks to Top Chef winner Paul Qui.
I found his recipe in a Food and Wine article about his late-night eating habits. He always makes a yummy dinner for his fiancÃ©e, even if he comes home after midnight.
I love that he added bacon to his adobo dish.
Qui pairs his adobo with ginger rice. The sharp ginger flavor surprised and worried my hubby at the dinner table. After a few more bites, we agreed that the ginger flavors hit all the right notes with the chicken and bacon.
Mark also said he missed my family’s version of adobo chicken when the meat falls off the bone. So – I think I need to cook the chicken longer in Qui’s mix of white soy, fish sauce and chicken broth. The longer cooking time should make the chicken more tender.
Bottom line: a classy upgrade to my family’s comfort food.
