From My Good Friend Marie

Marie is a defense attorney like I was, and we met in court in San Diego. Pretty hot stuff!  I enjoyed eating at her house a few times and she always seemed to know her way around the kitchen. This looks like it will be my husbands favorite - we have some fresh frozen Alaskan Salmon in the freezer I will have to get out to cook this weekend!  Thanks Marie! Hugs to you.......
