In my house of guys beef is almost sacred and the thought of messing with their beloved cow burgers is fighting words especially if you tell them it is going to be fish for diner. Now the one exception to this rule is salmon they all like it and I can get them to walk away from cow for a night by serving up these grilled salmon burgers. Even the pickiest of them is onboard with grilled pineapple it is just so sweet and juice and offers the perfect balance to the barbecue sauce and the Dijon mustard.
I love the technique of a thin layer of Dijon mustard and then drizzled with agave on it. I use to do it with honey but with my husband becoming diabetic it was a nice discovery to use the agave is a real good switch out for the honey. If you have not had the chance or inkling to try it before it is really a good sweetener (except in coffee my husband tells me) it’s kind of a cross between honey and sugar so it will take care of any sweet tooth out there but it is so much more diabetic friendly.
To round this out I had to sneak some avocado in I just love them and with the other stuff in there even the guys will go for it. I personally like the little hass avocadoes better then the bigger ones I think they have a nicer flavor but you use whatever kind you like. Now I cubed it in my recipe but you could always take and slice them and toss them on the grill along with the other stuff. Grilled avocado is lovely and another one of those things most don’t think of at first but it really is worth a try to see which you like better. Now it is easier to slice them in half the long way and remove the seed but if you want burger type rings use a serrated knife and cut them across then just take a paring knife make a small slit in the skin and peel it around and push out the seed bit from the middle. Slightly less ripe avocados work better for grilling then real ripe ones. Continue reading
Growing up in New England there are a few foods you come to know well some of these are clam chowder, Yankee pot roast, and maple syrup. And if you want the best in maple syrup any true New Englander will tell you it comes from Vermont. Not that stuff they sell you that is made of chemicals and corn syrup but from good old Vermont maple trees and boiled for hours until it is thick and so naturally sweet. If you haven’t tried it you will never go back to that other stuff once you do – there really is no substitute.
Now not too far from Vermont’s maple groves is the Great Lakes region of New York where every year the salmon run from Lake Ontario up the Salmon River to spawn when you can go catch salmon the size of a small dog. The beauty of this is it is prime fishing and just like there is no substituting fake syrup for real wild fresh caught salmon is so much better too.
Having a husband that was a fisherman was wonderful every fall we would stock up on salmon and I am talking filets and steaks that were just heavenly. Now so the animal rights crowd doesn’t beat up on us they die after spawning so catching them isn’t a harmful thing they’re dead shortly anyways and all the fish cleaning station collect the eggs which go to the hatcheries to recycle another generation. This year my twins as part of their middle school science project help hatch and release salmon in our state and I can’t wait until they come back to the size they are in New York. Continue reading
Catfish is a great choice. It is versatile, flavorful and economical. Get yourself some juicy catfish filets and give the following recipe a try. It is best to cook these catfish filets on the grill, but if the weather is not on your side, bake them in the oven instead or simply cook them in a skillet or griddle pan. This is such a simple recipe.
We are melting butter with olive oil and adding garlic powder and red chili flakes. This mixture is used to baste the catfish on the grill, keeping it succulent and juicy, and also sealing in all those wonderful juices and stopping it from drying out. Feel free to tweak this mixture if you wish. Some people might prefer to swap the red chili flakes for fresh minced rosemary leaves. That would work nice too, especially if you squeeze a little lemon juice in the mix.
The catfish is best served hot, either with a tasty salad on the side or even with some grilled asparagus or grilled vegetable kabobs. Another idea is to serve the catfish in buns as a tasty fish sandwich, adding some remoulade or your favorite creamy dressing on top, along with a large lettuce leave and a slice each of fresh tomato and red onion. However you choose to serve your grilled catfish, you are sure to be delighted with the juicy texture and the wonderful flavor this dish offers. This is practically carb-free too, so suitable for those on a low-carb eating plan. Continue reading

Grilling fish is so easy and fast that you will want to do it all the time. Salmon cooked using this method is so much better for your health than burgers and steaks which are higher in fat.
