Weddings. The colors. Flowers. Fancy dress. Food. The magic of the first kiss as husband and wife. Weddings are exceptional. I should know—I have been in 11 of them. I have stood as a bridesmaid nine times—a maid of honor two times—and twice been a reader. Yes, that is 11 dresses that I will never wear again.
Now, Southern though I might be—these 11 weddings do not hold a candle to the countless parties, showers, and get-togethers I have hosted. Bless my heart, I love throwing parties for every occasion. But weddings are special. They are important. It is an honor to be a part of someone’s special day. With the days getting longer, summer upon us, and our friends getting together, party guidelines are essential. And again—I do love any good reason to celebrate.
Salmon Tacos with Yummy Avocado and Tomato Salsa
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoons lemon zest
Salt and pepper
1 ½ pounds salmon fillet, no skin
Whisk together lemon juice, oil, garlic, salt and pepper. Coat salmon and let marinate for 30 minutes (and only 30, otherwise the lemon will “cook” the salmon), turning once. Heat oven to 350˚ and bake for 10-16 minutes to desired doneness, turning once (salmon can also be cooked on the grill). Crumble and divide evenly among tortillas, top with salsa.
