We're having company for dinner tonight (just another couple) and I'm undecided about what to make. Any favorites out there?

What about some chicken kabobs,corn on the cob, salad, a rice pilaf, drinks and dessert (fruit salad).

Ops I forgot to add you could do salmon steaks
Orange basil salmon
1/4 c fresh orange juice
2 tab fresh lemon juice
2 tab oilve oil
1/3 c chopped fresh basil
2 tsp grated orange rind
6 salmon steaks
Combine first 5 ing in large zip top plastic bag add salmon. Cover and chill 2 hrs
Remove from marinade & discard marinade. Grill covered with grill lid on a lightly greased food rack over med high heat (350-400) 10 mins on each side or until fish flakes esily (check after 5 mins to be on the safe side)
You can add a salad, grilled veggies (zucchini for example), bread some cookies and ice cream if you don't have time for dessert.
Some cool drink (sangria, or wine coolers?)
You could have before some salsa? Oh I posted a grilled tomatoes with basil vinaigrette on the board you could make too.
If you don't have time for dessert there is always watermelon! :) Enjoy your dinner party

Thanks for the salmon recipe. I'll keep that one for future use. We were on the same wavelength. I decided to go with a big salad and a favorite of ours, Caesar Mahi-Mahi (not sure if I got this from Cooking Light or WW, but it's a good one) with the orzo, spinich and pine nuts from Best of CL. Made the peach pie from the recent issue for dessert. If it tastes as good as it looks, I'm in good shape.

Hope your dinner went well. Would you mind terribly posting your Mahi-Mahi recipe? I don t recall it from CL and couldn t find it using the Recipe Search - and it sounds wonderful! Also, how was the pie? All the pies look lovely, but that one caught my eye immediately because peach pie is way up there on my list and the coconut streusel would probably add an interesting dimension. Thank you and have a terrific day.

The Caesar Mahi-Mahi was a hit. Let me know if you like it.
1/4 cup fat free yogurt
2 tablespoons parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons low fat buttermilk
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
2 teaspoons worstershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon pepper
6 cloves garlic (minced)
4 mahi-mahi fish filets
Combine all ingredients in a zip lock bag and add fish. Marinate in refrigerator. Cook under broiler until cooked all the way through (careful to watch it doesn't burn if too close to the broiler). Baste with reserved marinade.
You can adjust the garlic if needed. We love garlic so I use it all.
