A Perfect Dinner

Viki Lyn is stirring up a mix of good things in the kitchen today. Pull up a chair and make yourself comfortable.

Perfect Salmon Filet
1 salmon filet per person
olive oil
lemon juice
freshly ground pepper
herbs and/or spices of your preference

Set oven to 350°F.

Place salmon filet in pan and rub with olive oil. Squeeze on lemon juice. Spice to your liking. I use dill, salt and pepper.

Place in oven for 20 minutes.

All oven temperatures are different so give and take a few minutes, and experiment. The trick is not to overcook the fish. The salmon is done when it flakes easily when tested with a fork.

Here’s a lovely adult beverage to enjoy while your salmon bakes.

Angel Face

(drink recipe from Diffords Guide)

1 shot of dry gin
1 host of calvados
1 shot of apricot brandy liqueur

Add ingredients to a shaker filled with ice. Shake well. Pour Angel Face into a martini glass and garnish with a very thin apple slice.

Here's a little from my latest book to enjoy with your Angel Face Cocktail.

Kenneth believes everything—even love—can be solved logically, until he meets a flower child who challenges him at every turn.

Kenneth Hailey, an uptight conservative mathematician, believes he's in control. After all, every problem can be solved in a deliberate and logical manner. Even love. When his fiancée dumps him for his best friend, he leaves Manhattan for the West Coast. What better place to forget his past. It's 1967, and San Francisco is the place to turn on, tune in, and drop out.

But is he ready for Rose Red?

Rose Red, a free-spirited flower child, challenges Kenneth, thrusting him into her world of love-ins, protest rallies, and rock concerts. Kenneth finds himself falling down a rabbit hole, hanging on for dear life.

Old habits die hard, and he retreats, but Rose Red has other plans for him.

  1. Sloane, thanks for having me as a guest today! My husband only likes Salmon so I had to figure out how to cook it - and since I'm no cook, it had to be tasty but easy. The drink is featured in one of my m/m books - hint.

    1. I don't like salmon, either! But your recipe has converted me, Viki.:) Now I have to buy all your m/m books to see which one has this delicious drink and under what circumstances.

    2. :) Sloane, you're too funny! But the title of the drink should give you a hint which books features the drink. :)
