i'm doing a saint patrick's dinner the saturday before. good long-term friends with a few new ones mixed in. one is a pescavore, the others pretty adventurous but not fans of lamb. i don't mind doing something different for the fish eater, say a seafood appetizer with an entree-size portion for her. but...
i'm thinking of doing a diver scallop app, an onion soup, grilled salmon, boxty or colcannon, and peas and radishes or grilled asparagus. hoping to highlight some spring flavors rather than a more hearty corned beef and cabbage.
yesterday i made a mildly sweet sour cream and blueberry cake that might do for dessert sliced thin with a layer of lemon curd between.
what think ye?
