SERIOUS BACK SLIDING!

Saturday was family day with dinner out in Knoxville. This week the Dragons chose Bonefish Grill. It’s a wonderful place on Parkside Drive, in the Turkey Creek shopping area. They seem to have a handle on fresh fish and always have at least 7 selections.

The appetizer choices for the six of us were:
Bang Bang Shrimp - Tender, crispy shrimp tossed in a creamy, spicy sauce.
Mussels Josephine - Prince Edward Island Mussels sautéed with tomatoes, garlic, basil and lemon wine sauce.
Saucy Shrimp - Sautéed in a lime tomato garlic sauce with Kalamata olives and feta cheese.

This probably sounds like a lot, but there was nothing left!

The crew settled on these entrees:
Alaskan Halibut with pasta and vegetables
Cedar Plank Salmon with vegetables
Scallops and Shrimp with Oscar* sauce and rice

*(Oscar Sauce is lump crab meat, asparagus, and a lemon butter sauce)

The wine choice was Beringer White Zinfandel, while the men settled for Miller Lite (btl), Sierra Nevada (btl), and New Castle draft. The draft choices at Bonefish are very limited. To us Knights, this drops the overall rating to an A-!

Holy fuckin' shit man, what diet are you on again?

Kidding. Looks great. Sounds like a wonderful time. I'm gonna have to do a study of these beers. Wanna know what you're talkin' about when you say what's good. Found that coors lite draft is smoother than bottled. What's up with that? My imagination?

Beer is usually much better on draft. Bottled is better than canned too.

Even bottled needs to be enjoyed from a chilled glass. It breathes like wine and the added nose head makes the taste so much better.

There are a few exceptions...some beer smells skunky in a glass.

Cedar Salmon said...

I think Salmon is a healthy meal. The Cedar Plank Salmon is teasing my taste buds.
