Last Friday evening DSH and I went to the store for our cell phone carrier to make some changes to our cell phone plan.
Once we were done there we began the drive home. We passed Buca di Beppo, one of our favorite restaurants. Buca di Beppo is a family style restaurant that serves great Italian food.
Over the last year we’ve been there twice, and both times we wanted to order the salmon with pesto, and both times they’ve been out of salmon.
On an impulse, DSH made a u-turn and we stopped at Buca di Beppo. DSH had decided to see if they had salmon, and if so we were going to order it to go.
To my delight, they had salmon 🙂 DSH ordered it and we took it home. It also came with a side of broccoli and some foccacia.
The salmon was delicious! It was baked with pesto and topped with pine nuts and sun dried tomatoes. The broccoli was tender and seasoned with crushed red pepper flakes and romano cheese. Unfortunately, the red pepper flakes made it too spicy for me, so I was only able to eat a small amount.
What a wonderful and thoughtful surprise from DSH! It was very sweet of him 🙂
