Market Day

It was raining cats and dogs today. This was the day that I was going to check out the St. Albert Farmer's Market. It is a great market. Many producers and artisans were displaying their bounty. Those dedicated souls were huddled under their tents and we dedicated souls were trudging around trying to stay inspired. Pictures were out of the question because of the downpour. When I shop at a market, supper that day is usually pretty exciting. What to make.......what to make.

I had a small salmon available and a new fish basket to try out. This fish basket is a stainless steel cage with handles that you can flip on the barbecue so your fish does not tear or break. I went out to the garden and got a selection of fresh herbs. I stuffed them into the cavity of the salmon with some slices of lemon and thinly sliced shallot. Smoked sea salt and pepper, and then on to the BBQ. Boiled new potatoes and yellow beans rounded out the meal, and a satisfying shopping trip turned into a satisfying meal.
