This recipe is also in the latest Cooking Light special issue. Jay was here for dinner so we decided to make fish. Larry did most of the prep. The salmon was okay. Not fabulous. I’ve had better.

Wine: Williams Selyem 2001 Russian River Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley, California). Williams Selyem is a well-respected producer of Pinot Noirs. It takes six months to get on their mailing list (we’re on it), so we have several of their wines. Larry was underwhelmed. I thought this was a nice Pinot, less fruit forward than I like but still nice. If I remember right, it is one of their lower-priced wines. It would have benefitted from a couple more years in the bottle.
