Made this salmon recipe for a sailside dinner , wishing for summer, party for six, and what a hit is was. I have 7 bags left now of Ocean Spray's cranberries to get me through until this fall's harvest. I'll have to use them sparingly until then in my cocktails. Sigh! Now if summer would finally make an appearance, and we sailors could headout to sea safely and comfortably.
