Garlic Herb Grilled Salmon

Summertime is the perfect time for a grilled dinner. Start with a quick garlic herb marinade of salmon filets and then grill for 10 minutes.  A great side dish is grilled asparagus. You can add potatoes or a wonderful fresh salad to complete your meal.  As usual, crusty bread or rolls completes this fast and tasty meal that also provides great nutrition for your family.

Chicken Piccata

Chicken Piccata is one of my favorite dishes. I was first introduced to it years ago at a restaurant and fell in love.  Tender chicken breasts are pounded thin, are dredged in flour and seared until golden. The chicken is then simmered in a butter white wine sauce with fresh lemon and capers. Always remember to zest before squeezing a lemon.  Serve this dish over rice or pasta. You’ll impress your family and friends with this easy but seemingly fancy dish. Add a salad and rolls or crusty bread for a great meal.

You can use canned tuna too.  The tuna salad is not the classic one I’ve enjoyed since childhood, but it is full of flavor. Quick and easy to make with a few great ingredients, you’ll find you will use it many times for a spur of the moment healthy meal.
