This week over at the Back Burner, we are sharing recipes from restaurants, that have stayed with us. I, took a trip down memory lane, to a favorite little Italian restaurant, Carlo’s. Carlo’s was an intimate Italian bistro in San Rafael, CA. It was owned by a quirky Italian couple, Carlo and Marie Avola. The witty personalities filled the small dining room nightly, and their home-cooked Italian food kept you coming back for more.
A highlight of mine was the gently poached salmon. Carlo poached it in sparkling wine, and it was lightly seasoned with garlic, rosemary and fresh vegetables. It was like butter … melting on your tongue with each bite. This recipe is perfect for a romantic evening at home or even as a bridal luncheon.
