Crispy Salmon with Lemon, Basil and Caper Sauce with a side of Lake Tahoe
So, Yes!Chef! has returned home from Boston and he is feeling like cooking up some goodness again. (Everyone at the Schmautzhaus says Huzzah!) And, boy, is recipe a great way to come back.

Although I will eat potatoes when Yes!Chef! makes them (and he loves potatoes), I can do without them for the most part.
