Summer in the City

Summer in the City

This menu is meant to be light (if you leave out the ice cream) and refreshing. It is also a very sophisticated selection, go figure, but some of your friends might not know what a Polenta Soufflé consists of. Tell them polenta. The salsa recipe calls for a food processor but you can hand chop if you don't have one. You want salmon with the skin on, a fillet, not a steak. You can cook the fish over high heat with skin side down and it will not dry out, when you flip it though, remember to re-oil the grill or it will stick. The soufflé can be prepared and refrigerated before you bake it up to 1 hour ahead. The ice cream must be done one day ahead. Enjoy.
