Lemon Caper Salmon and some wine....

For New Year's Eve Dave and I had a few fabulous friends over for dinner.  We had Lemon Caper Salmon, Roasted Asparagus and sautéed Brussels Sprouts with Mushrooms (of course).  The salmon was SOOOO good and so easy.

Here is the recipe!



Lemon Caper Salmon

Ingredients:

Large Fresh Salmon Filet (I usually get the one from Costco and Dave and I can get 6-8 pieces from it)
1 Large Lemon
Capers
Marsala Wine (Cooking Wine)
Salt
Pepper
Olive oil
Fresh Rosemary


Directions:
Preheat oven to 350.  Lay out aluminum foil and place salmon on foil.  Make sure it is enough to fold over the salmon and make into a little boat.  Brush the top on the salmon with a little olive oil, salt and pepper.  Break up fresh Rosemary and spread on top of salmon.  You can use dried but I love the fresh. You can add as little or as much as you want.  Slice 4 slices of lemon.  Squeeze the juice from the remaining part of lemon over the salmon.  I just made 2 pieces so I split the amount of lemon juice per piece. If you are making more than 2 pieces buy enough lemons so each piece can have 2 lemon slices. Top each piece with 2 T of marsala wine and 1tsp of capers.  You can't really mess this up so feel free to add more or less.  Wrap salmon up in foil.  Don't wrap too tightly, more like a boat.  Place on cookie sheet and bake for 10-20 minutes depending on how done you like your salmon.  I like mine pretty done and flaky.  YUMMY!  If you want more of an exact recipe you can use this one from the Food Network!

So I have also been on a wine kick lately...I mean I guess I always am but I have been trying a lot of new stuff.  I used to be an only white wine drinker...because unless I am drinking coffee I like whatever I am drinking to be cold, however I am now starting to buy more and more red wine.  Here are a few of my new faves!

This is by far one of my favorite go to red wines!

If I owned a vineyard this would obviously be the name I would choose.  I was so surprised how awesome this wine was!! I LOVE IT so much!



I obviously buy the wine because of the name or the bottle!  I really love cupcake wine and the Red Velvet is my favorite.  Their prosecco is pretty great too!
