Summer Lovin’ Table For Two

Supposedly, it’s springtime when love is in the air. But it’s really during the summer when new romance takes shape. At least, if Danny and Sandy have anything to say about it. So if you have a new fling in your life, or you’re looking to shake things up with someone you wooed for the first time long ago, invite your squeeze over for dinner, light the candles (we promise, they won’t make your apartment that much hotter), and settle in for a luscious summertime meal. Halibut is definitely a “special occasion” fish, as it’s on the pricier side. Here, it gets just a simple lemon-herb marinade and a quick trip to the grill, which, if you’re cooking together, is the perfect opportunity to get your other half involved. Round out the meal with a potato, pea, and summer squash hash, and a light, refreshing dessert that makes use of the season’s fresh strawberries.
