Dinner with a friend – without the gluten

(This appeared as an earlier post, April 2011.)  Last night we had our friend Christie to dinner. She’s a lovely person who deals with a rather un-lovely condition. It wasn’t at all difficult cooking for her, despite the food restrictions imposed on her. Besides the good companionship and lively conversation, here’s what we had at our table:

Grilled Salmon Fillets with Asparagus and Blood Oranges

Steamed New Potatoes with Butter and Chives

Green Salad with Avocado, Kumquats and Pistacios

Mango-Citrus Sorbet and Orangettes

and a bit of red wine

Being that April is Citrus Month (in Spree’s mind) each course celebrated those bright fruits. And with asparagus, blood oranges and new potatoes being so in-season, it was an appropriate dinner for a Spring evening. Though salmon season hasn’t quite hit yet, we found some beautiful thick fillets of wild salmon, flash-frozen at sea. Not a bad compromise!

(Recipes for each appear in the following posts.)
