Salmon Baked in Foil

As if we needed another reason to love Giada De Laurentiis' recipes... her Salmon Baked in Foil was absolutely delicious, and super easy. In the half hour or so it took to prepare and bake the salmon filets, I was able to throw together our favorite arugula salad and make a basic risotto with fresh herbs and Parmagiano. I stayed true to Giada's recipe, except that I added fresh thyme after the salmon came out of the oven, instead of adding dried at the start (it was what we had on hand). We paired this with the wonderful Evolution wine, an off-dry white which is a blend of 9 different grapes. It was a perfect complement to our meal, and a wine which we'll certainly drink again. All in all, it was a wonderful, quick and easy meal for a busy weeknight.

Isn't Giada great? I think she's the "thinking person's Rachael Ray". Her recipes have a real provenance to them, but they're still simple and delicious.

Barrett, I totally agree. And I love that she has such an emphasis on fresh, natural ingredients, but will still use canned stocks and such. I think it's *really* important for people to not be intimidated by cooking, particularly if they're just starting out... and I think Giada's great in that way.
