History of Labor Day

Happy Labor Day weekend to you all! Do you know why we celebrate Labor Day? It’s quite an interesting history. Labor Day is the celebration of the social and economic achievements of American workers. In the year of 1894, Labor Day was passed as a national holiday by Congress to be celebrated on the first monday of September. It is argued whether Peter McGuire or Matthew Maguire had invented this special holiday, but one thing can be certain…it’s a holiday that all hard-working Americans deserve! The holiday has evolved now into a great celebration with barbecue, family, friends, beer and fun! So enjoy your holiday weekend!

Ingredients
1/2 cup plain yogurt
Juice of 1 lemon, plus lemon wedges for garnish
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for the grill
2 to 3 cloves garlic, smashed
1 1/2 teaspoons ground coriander
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
4 6-ounce skinless center-cut salmon fillets
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro or parsley, for garnish

Directions
Stir together the yogurt, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, coriander, cumin, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste in a small bowl. Pour half of the sauce into a large resealable plastic bag; cover and refrigerate the remaining sauce. Add the salmon to the bag and turn to coat with the marinade. Refrigerate for 20 to 30 minutes, turning the bag over once.

Preheat a grill to medium-high. Remove the salmon from the marinade and blot off excess yogurt with paper towels. Lightly oil the grill and add the salmon; cook, turning once, until browned on the outside and opaque in the center, 4 to 6 minutes per side, depending on the thickness. Serve with the reserved yogurt sauce and garnish with the herbs and lemon wedges.
