Dinner Rush! Gin + Tonic Salmon BLTs

Cooking Channel has gone mash-up crazy in the best way possible. Caesar salad is commingling with pizza. Doughnuts are adorning icebox cakes. Would a rose by any other name taste as sweet as lasagna meatloaf? If you’re still looking to deviate from the norm, here’s one more for you to try: the BLT meets a gin and tonic.

For many of us, a hearty BLT and a refreshing G&T are already a match made in heaven. Crispy thick-cut bacon on mayo-slathered toasted bread deserves the stylish sophistication of such a timeless drink — it’s like edible shabby chic. Don’t fret, though, if you’re not into the whole “booze for dinner” thing. It’s fine to leave out the gin if you don’t care for it; this open-face knife and fork sandwich will still be a dinner-table rock star.

After you’ve given this a go, c’mon back to Cooking Channel for even more craveable comfort food mash-ups.

Ocean to Table: Alaskan Salmon

Ocean to Table!
Okay, so that’s a slight exaggeration. This 16-pound King salmon went from the Juneau, Alaska ocean, to fishing boat, to packaging company, to FedEx and ended up arriving at my New Jersey apartment two weeks after I caught it, filleted and frozen in perfectly-portioned packets. But, “ocean to table” or not, this was an amazing way to get salmon and the highlight of my recent Alaskan vacation.
