For a refreshing summer meal, you can't beat this creamy tuna salad mounded into cucumber halves. Hard-cooked eggs make the salad extra hearty, and the crispness of the cucumber is delightful. It's an extra-special luncheon entree or light supper.
-Mildred Stubbs, Hamlet, North Carolina
AFTER our children were married and gone, I prepared this entree often for my husband and me, especially on our anniversary. It was one of our favorites.
We found that one of the nicest ways to enjoy each other's company was to have a great meal together.

"I knew this golden entree was a winner when my mother-in-law -who owns every cookbook imaginable- asked for the recipe" relates Dawn Mayford of Granite City, Illinois. She flavors halibut steaks with a deliciously different sauce that combines fresh mint and peach preserves.
Combining different types of herbs not only gives this speedy fish depth of flavor, but it also results in a beautiful dish. Yvonne Nemec of Phillipsburg, New Jersey relates, “this is such an easy dish and so delicious. The herbs compliment the delicate flavor of the fish. We love it!”
My mother was happiest with a fishing rod in her hands, and her method of frying her catch was always a hit. Whenever someone gives us fresh fish or if I buy some, I use this wonderful recipe. —Gayle Cook, Minot, North Dakota
The nutty taste of this simple coating complements flaky fish fillets quite nicely. Complete the meal with parsley new potatoes and corn on the cob in season. Or, for a faster finish, serve with frozen French fries and mixed vegetables.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
A local restaurant used fresh peaches to garnish a salmon dish, which gave me this idea for grilling the fish we catch. It’s a beautiful presentation and quick to prepare. —Valerie Homer, Juneau, Alaska
