Menu Plan Monday!

It's summer time in the NW! A perfect time to fire up the grill (notice the all-grill menu). I'll be cooking ribs on Sunday afternoon (I can't wait) - they are my summer favorite! Here is the menu for Rebecca Lane for this week. Check out more great menu plans HERE


Sunday: BBQ Pork Ribs, cole slaw and corn on the cob
Monday: Grilled halibut w/herb mayo along side green beans and brown rice*
Tuesday: Grilled Cuban Chicken with Black Bean/Mango Salsa
Wednesday: Orange-Thyme Grilled Shrimp (thanks Rookie-Cookie) with jasmine rice
Thursday: Greenway Concert in the park (perhaps a picnic-style dinner from this place)

Grilled halibut w/herb mayo

1/4 cup mayo (fat free works fine)
1/4 cup plain yogurt (fat free works fine)
1tsp oregano, chopped (fresh if possible)
1tsp tarragon, chopped (fresh if possible)
1 big squeeze of fresh lemon juice (half lemon)
1 1/2 lb fish (you can use tuna, swordfish or halibut), 4 6-oz steaks, if possible
cooking spray

1. Prepare grill
2. Combine mayo, yogurt, herbs and lemon juice in a small bowl, Cover and chill.
