Sprinkle the halibut with fresh cracked pepper and a small bit of kosher salt, then pan grill it in a little bit of olive oil for about three minutes on each side. Meanwhile, steam the broccoli and boil fresh linguine (this only takes about five minutes).
Fresh linguine is very important because it takes such a prominent role in the meal. So spring for the good stuff, you'll be glad you did.
Toss the linguine with one tablespoon each of pasta water and olive oil, about a teaspoon of fresh cracked pepper and
about a quarter cup of Parmesan cheese.
And for dessert ... fresh watermelon. Sean is the designated watermelon chooser in our household - he always manages to pick the good ones. Every watermelon he has ever brought home has been sweet and juicy and brilliant red. Seeing him walk through the door with a watermelon in his hands always makes me giddy.
With summer winding down in Seattle, it makes me sad to think that this watermelon could be my last of the season. I guess it gives me something to look forward to for next year.
What is your favorite summer food or treat?
