What a great Father’s Day I enjoyed yesterday. Started with an hour walk with my wife Meg, then a swim later in the day with my youngest daughter Maddie and then a visit to Harriton Farms near where we live to sample some delicious ice cream from Yoder’s Country Market in New Holland, PA made by slow-churning milk from Golden Guernsey cows. My favorite was black cherry topped with fresh slices of local strawberries.
Roasted Halibut with Mango Salsa
Then my wife Meg prepared a feast of roasted halibut with mango salsa, steamed fresh asparagus and rice pilaf. We also enjoyed some incredible mozzarella made at DiBruno Bros on Friday served with tomatoes and basil and good olive oil and balsamic vinegar (Insalata Caprese), my favorite summertime dish especially when the tomatoes are in season. We finished off the meal with a Caesars salad.
The halibut was cut thick so my wife seasoned it with salt and pepper and a little olive oil and then cooked it in the oven at 400 degrees F for 20 minutes. It usually doesn’t take this long but it was a thick piece. The fish was perfect especially when served with the mango salsa.
Thanks Family for a great 2011 Father’s Day!
