I feel like I’ve been neglecting my blog, but I did still keep up with pictures while we were on holidays, now I just need to find the time to do the posts. Until then here is a post about the meal we enjoyed last night.
I knew I wanted rice for supper, but I knew I would have to come up with something to accompany the rice. So I looked through one of my cookbooks for inspiration and found a recipe for grilled salmon steaks and I knew that’s what I was going to make. Sorry if the picture quality is not great as I took the pictures with my iPhone because the decision to make this for supper was pretty last minute.
Here’s the recipe (from Company’s Coming Barbecues cookbook):
- 2 Salmon steaks
- 1/2 cup vinegar
- 2 Tbsp chili sauce (I made my own using this recipe as I didn’t have any on hand)
- 2 Tbsp cooking oil
- 2 Tbsp brown sugar
- 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1/4 tsp onion powder
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp chili powder
- Thaw fish if frozen
- For the marinade: In shallow pan mix together remaining ingredients. Marinate about 20 minutes, turning occasionally. Place steaks on well greased, medium hot grill for about 5 – 6 minutes per side. Baste often. Fish should flake easily when tested with a fork. Serves 4.
This was delicious. Neither the salmon nor the marinade were overpowering but rather they complemented each other nicely. I cooked some rice and we enjoyed some garden fresh cucumber as well and it made for a nice light meal.
