I'm hosting dinner for a group of 8 this weekend. Am planning to make slow roasted salmon with citrus/fennel (http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/foo...) but am worried about the mixed reviews. Has anyone made this or have suggestions on similar alternatives? I'm also stumped on side dishes/dessert. Am planning on making a celery root soup for first course, but the rest is still up in the air. I'd like at least two (non dairy) sides. Suggestions? I'm making the meal with my husband, so have a fair amount of person-power and interest in creating a special meal. Suggestions welcome! Thanks!
