This semi-exotic fruit lends a clean, tart flavor to savory dishes.
The appearance of the season’s freshest vegetables is always met with joy. Artichokes, asparagus, garden-fresh lettuce, cucumbers, okra and, of course, vine-ripened tomatoes, to name a few. None of these make me happier than the first sight of fresh, sweet English shelling peas.
After coming home with a bounty of trout from Hebo Lake, we had a dilemma: What to do with the trout for dinner? Tired of fried trout, we decided to poach them in a broth of white wine, vegetables and herbs, and serve them with a dill sauce. It was a refreshing change and the sides of peas and carrots went wonderfully with the sauce.
