Salmon x2 brought defrosted slices [for the amount of people cooking for, in this I’m doing it for 2 people, so double up depending on if you need more]
Artichoke hearts in oil x1 can
Pick a herb~ basil, oregano, thyme, marjoram, etc. handful of one of these.
Olives, one can
Seasoning-pepper and salt
Lemon juice
Sliced, diced and chopped vegetables of your choice- aubergine, coloured peppers etc.
Get a tray that you’ll be cooking these in, add the fish a good length apart [so the other things can cook around them].
Open the cans of the list above. Chop the herb of your choice and add this to a small bowl with the juice of one lemon and the seasoning, mix with a fork and add this over the fish. Place the veg around the salmon slices, and add the artichoke hearts as well-this comes in it’s own oil and will be sufficient to be oily for the whole dish, plus the fish contains oils too. Add the drained olives as well.
Cook on an average temp- around 180 degrees C, for about 30mins-1 hour check occasionally to see when the fish has coloured a light golden brown.

the bee balm and raspberries. Bring to a simmer, stir to break up the
raspberries. When the sugar is dissolved, strain leaves and berries out
of the liquid. Add cranberry juice and mint, stirring well. Chill up to
24 hours. When ready to serve, pour into a punch bowl and add pineapple
juice, ice and ginger ale.

Bee Balm Iced Tea

about an hour. Strain and discard flowers. You can sweeten with sugar if
desired. Chill until ready to use and serve over ice.
Bee Balm Tea: Pour one cup of boiling water over 1/4 cup fresh leaves
and allow to brew for 5 minutes. Strain and sweeten if you wish before
serving. To use dried bee balm pour one cup of boiling water over two
teaspoons of the dried leaves. Brew the same and strain.

Summer Tea Blend
3 tbsp. dried chamomile flowers
1 tbsp. dried bee balm leaves
2 tsp. dried rosemary

There is an old Swedish saying, “Midsummer night is not long but it sets many cradles rocking.” In Alaska, where the summer nights are also long, 72% of babies are conceived between May and September. Perhaps it is a carry-over from summer solstice celebrations that June is still a popular month to get married. As the character Jose Ferrer plays in Woody Allen’s delightful film A Midsummer Night’s Sex Comedy concludes, “These woods are enchanted! Filled with the lucky men and women of passion…”
