What do you think of my Valentine's Day menu?
This is for me and my husband of 1.5 years.
Lemon Chicken Soup with Green Pea Tortellini
Avocado-Citrus Salad with Honey-Poppyseed Dressing
Braided Baked Salmon with Ginger-Scallion Dipping Sauce
Sounds fine to me, though I haven't a clue as to what is meant by "braided" baked salmon...what's braided, and why is that important?
With that menu, you've got room for something creamy and delicious for dessert.
Wine? I'd imagine you'd choose something crisp and white, but I'd be counterintuitive and try a red w/ some bite, but not heavy...pinots work, maybe a lighter cabernet franc.
Enjoy....and while you're at it, feel free to cook for me, sometime, too....:-)
I'm assuming "braided" is "breaded" -- I'd suggest buttered Panko crumbs. I'd also look for some light, crispy kind of flatbread or something on the side to couteract all the citrus. And what about dessert? This is, after all, time to trot out the most decadent recipe you can come up with.
