Almost too much food porn for one post

Boy and I took a pass on working on the house project today since there has been zero sunshine around to dry things out like we need. That left us with sleeping in this morning and looking for something to take up the afternoon and evening.
I've been in a cooking drought lately as a result of my whole GC gig, so I figured free time + a serious craving for something yummy + Ms. Knit-Whit and her fab hubby= one delicious meal and some amazingly beautiful pics. I owe this serious dose of food porn to Carrie. Feeding her in exchange for some to-drool-over photography is a great deal.

Salmon club

FYI, ditch the marinade and just season and oil the fish before grilling. I can't say enough good about this recipe. I've made it over and over again and it's one of my absolute most favorite sandwiches EVER. And isnt' this truly a magazine worthy photo? I'm so crazy about this recipe I would have said a photo could never do it justice, but I really think this one does. It's THAT good.


Grilled new potatos with herbs and parmesan


Instead of boiling and then grilling these, I just cubed them, tossed with olive oil, salt and pepper and put in a parchment/foil pack on the grill. Once they were tender, I tossed with the herbs, scallion, parmesan and garlic. The fresh herbs make this sort of like a warm potato salad. Delicious and different.

And for dessert, as promised, Coconut macadamia nut bananna bread with strawberries, mango and coconut glaze.

The recipe comes from The Gourmet Cookbook, and it's yummy. The coconut glaze I made by adding ~1/2c. sugar to a can of coconut milk, reducing until thick and then finishing with a little fresh lime juice.

A huge thanks to Carrie for being the one to fork over the $$ for a good camera and having such an amazing photographic eye. You rock, babe!

Mmm delish! Thanks again for the fabulous food and company.
 
Beautiful post. I'm a banana bread addict and I think that this is a combination that I wouldn't be able to resist!
