Savory Blueberry Ginger Salsa

Savory Blueberry Ginger Salsa

Funny how sometimes life rolls in a direction never anticipated.  Catching us by surprise, with both trepidation and promise. It’s been an eventful year for my family.  My first-born conquering a long and tedious health challenge, my youngest discovering the heartbreak and joy of her first year in high school.   A brilliant year of cooking classes filled with the most wonderful home chef’s I’ve ever met.  New clients, new...

I discovered something about myself this weekend.  I really love to talk ( I should know this, my two sassy gals tell me often).

Grilled Halibut with Fresh Blueberries and Lemon

Grilled Halibut with Fresh Blueberries and Lemon

This is one of those recipes that truly came together last-minute.  I had a pint of fresh organic blueberries starting to shrivel in my frig and I really needed to use them.  I was thinking I’d make muffins or possibly pancakes, but then I thought why not use them for dinner?  I had a beautiful fillet of fresh halibut in the frig and the blueberries would make a delightful sweet but savory topping.    The key to this recipe had to be...
