Salmon in fig leaves

Eastside Road, June 9, 2012—
TO THE FARM MARKET this morning, as usual, and with the usual results: favas, salmon, strawberries, loganberries, garlic…

Lindsey salted and peppered the salmon, and sprinkled it with a bit of olive oil, and wrapped it in fig leaves she'd soaked for an hour or so. I fired up the grill: charcoal and grapevine wood. First I grilled a number of sweet green peppers; then the salmon went on, a few minutes on one side, a few on the other.

Meantime Lindsey'd cooked up the favas in a little butter. Green salad afterward, and berries and ice cream… June's a wonderful month!
