Jolee's Kitchen

This week we're bringing you a simple and delicious recipe from Jolee's Kitchen. This dish is made up of just 5 ingredients and boasts bold and savory flavors, perfectly paired with our Del Rio Vineyard Estate Chardonnay. 


Aunt Patti's Salmon

Rob’s Aunt Patti Uhland is one of the best cooks around. She is that person who always brings dishes to a gathering and everyone is asking her for the recipe by the end of the night. This salmon is one of those recipes. The best part is it's so easy, you won't believe how quickly this dish is thrown together. You can serve it as a meal straight out of the oven, or bring it down to room temperature and serve it as an hors d'oeuvres with crackers. Beautiful on a buffet or plated and garnished with fresh chopped parsley.
