We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Poached salmon with yoghurt dill sauce is one of our standards for bringing as our contribution to outdoor summer dinner parties. Asparagus is good on the side. Everybody loves it.
We also use this as our large group Christmas Eve after-church suppers for whoever is lucky enough to be invited to our place for supper around the fireplaces, with the tree (Christmas Eve requires seafood, and you can do this in the afternoon so it's ready when you get home.) One or two of those huge Costco filets, depending on numbers, is good to poach. Easy to do.
Recipe here. We poach the large filets intact and present them on a large tray. It's more appealing that way.

"They are expanding into new markets ... reaching new consumers" Morgeson said about Dunkin Donuts. "They have freshened up their brand a little bit and improved their perception of quality and are still price competitive."
Takes me back many years to the '50s, when my grandmother would poach a whole salmon on the Fourth of July and serve it with new potatoes and peas we kids picked that morning at a local farm. Strawberry shortcake for dessert, of course.
If it's any kind of farmed salmon (atlantic salmon is farmed all the time), it's disgusting and I wouldn't feed it to the dog. The salmon in the pic looks awfully light colored. If it's not wild caught salmon, don't bring it to any gathering of mine that involves eating it.
