Dinner Snapshot - Cedar Planked Salmon with Honey Sesame Sauce

Cedar-Planked Salmon with Honey Sesame Sauce
on a bed of Peperonata
served alongside Wild Rice
Cedar-Planked Salmon with Honey Sesame Sauce
Soak the cedar plank for three hours prior to use (you can go an hour if your pressed for time but any less than that and you will have flaming salmon).
6oz wild salmon filets (my favorite is Coho)
one cedar plank
1/4 cup honey
1 tablespoon sesame seeds (toasted)
Heat bbq to 400F. Place plank on grill for two minutes and then flip over. Place salmon on plank, skin side down and grill until done (about ten minutes). There is no need to flip the fish. In the meantime, combine honey and sesame seeds. When salmon is done, serve on individual plates and pour honey mixture over fish.

A combination of tomatoes, peppers, and onions. We just use whatever is on hand, be it any color of bell pepper or any of the varieties of hot pepper that we have growing out back. This receipe is good for any peppers, tomatoes, or onions that are nearing the end of their edible life. All amounts can be made larger to accomodate more than two people.
1/8 to 1/4 cup olive oil - we use about 1/8 but you may need more depending on how many ingredients you are using
1 cup onion (any color), thinly sliced
2 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced
2 cups of peppers, seeded, and thinly sliced
1 1/2 cups of tomatoes, any kind, chopped
1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
In a large skillet, head oil over medium heat. Add the onion and saute until tender but not brown (5-8 minutes). Add garlic and cook until fragrant (30 to 60 seconds). Add peppers and cook until browning (10 minutes). Add tomatoes and cook until peppers are tender (about 20 minutes...everything should be a bit cooked down now). Remove from heat. Stir in basil and season with salt and pepper. Serve.
