****GIVEAWAY CLOSED // CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR WINNER @MELANIEWMALONE****

Nothing says alfresco summer entertaining quite like a family-style grilled fish, farmers market fresh corn salad and an extra crispy cabbage slaw!

Saturday mornings mean one thing our home, a family stroll to the farmers market in the park that’s just across the street. They have the best farm-fresh produce. Especially this time of year. A few weeks ago, however, a new fish vendor made his debut and inspired this entire meal. Freddie has always been so adventurous with his cooking, and for this, I am very grateful. So when pointed at the two-pound (whole) red snapper and looked at me with inquisitive eyes, I nodded instinctively and I told him I’d not only be documenting the experience, but I’d also be taking the opportunity to do what I love doing best, creating a beautiful tablescape to complement this bold and delicious dish. Paired with fresh microgreens, a garlic rub, and lemons, this red snapper is at the top of our family favorites for its flavor and ease.

You may remember a few months back; we took a trip to Montauk where Freddie and I cooked and entertained for my in-laws. The lobster dinner was excellent however, I’d have to say that the tablescape remains one of my favorites for its curated assortment of found objects, vessels, and tableware, all from Weston Table. Remember these insanely unique oyster plates?

Since then, Weston Table has been my go-to for all things home and lifestyle. Their beautifully curated marketplace is uniquely one of a kind, and I’m always finding pieces to add to our home. If you know, you know!
