Carlos Fresh Salmon

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.
