Cedar-Planked Wild Salmon with Mustard Dill Sauce
Barbecued Vidalia Onions
Bring on the grilling season! These recipes came up in a conversation here in the tasting room regarding favored grilling preparations with long-time Locals Wine Club Members Rich & Maureen Tunheim of Santa Rosa.
The idea of grilling wild salmon is particularly apropos of 2011 here in Sonoma County, as this is the first year since 2008 that salmon has been fished locally (Bodega Bay). The season opened May 1, and continues off and on as allowed by Fish & Game and as weather permits, through the end of September.
If you want to get the freshest, most delicious fish ever, you can buy it right off the docks at Lucas Wharf or at the Tides Fish Market in Bodega Bay (707-875-3554 for availability update). What a treat!
The Barbecued Vidalia Onions will make an excellent, savory side to the rich salmon. Fill out the rest of the menu as you see fit.
