Summer in Annapolis, MD in the good old US of A brings out all the lovely flying creatures, fireflies, butterflies, bats, not to mention the birds.  But one of my favorites are the dainty dragonflies!  Three different ones, all in the past week, they love to sit on the tops of the bamboo stakes in the veg garden.

A very simple recipe - such a delicious and healthy dish.  Place a whole side of salmon on a generous bed of fresh dill and slices of lemon, skin down.  Drizzle the top with olive oil, squeeze of half a lemon, cracked pepper and a little ground pink Himalayan Sea Salt (it's all I use), plus a little chopped fresh dill.  Bake in a 375F oven for 15 mins.  I also love this done on the outside grill on a cedar plank that has been soaked overnight in water, hot grill that is closed, also for 15-20 mins.  Serve with a green salad, your favorite rice or potato dish.
