"Found @ The Cafe site, entered here for play in CQ #4 (India) & authored by Chris Scheuer who said "So delicious, super-easy & the solution to boring salads! And it’s also fabulous drizzled over pan-seared or grilled salmon, shrimp or chicken too!" For our use here @ home, I often use it as a glaze for several oven-baked seafood varieties. I season fish fillets w/Old Bay plus a generous sprinkle of dry dill, apply this mixture w/my pastry brush to the raw fish prior to baking & then finish the fish w/another brushed on coat of it before serving. Try it - You'll like it! ENJOY!"

Daily Inspiration

This dressing/glaze/marinade is absolutely delicious and the more you taste it, the more you like it. Not sure whether I will marinate chicken breasts in it, serve it over a salad or as a glaze, but it will be used and I'm sure it will be used over and over. It truly is delicious and it's going into my Best of 2018 file.
