Rob Benedet’s Barbecued Salmon Fillets

I found Rob Benedet’s Barbecued Salmon Fillets in the first BC’s Best Salmon Recipe book.  Download all 4 here. Don’t get turned off by the use of a bit of Ketchup, it’s part of a simple BBQ sauce, great on Salmon or Steelhead Trout.  You can barbecue it or simply bake at 325 for 15 minutes.

Yukon Gold Potato Salad

We love the flavor of yellow fleshed Potatoes.  Selena loves them in Yukon Gold Potato Salad and Mashed Potatoes.   So much so, we painstakingly measured everything for her company picnic so she could make it again with confidence.  I usually eyeball the ingredients but took this opportunity to post our family favorite.   Mom used New Potatoes and Carrots.  To make Hubby happy I put my in-laws’ Celery Seeds in it.

It’s best to prep at least a day in advance to allow the flavours to come together before re-seasoning.  Too much Salt or Mustard and you’ll be adding more Spuds or Yolks.

Disclaimer:  Depending on the water content of your Potatoes, you’ll have to carefully season and possibly hold back dressing until you re-season the next day.  The veggies tend to weep overnight so you don’t want your salad to be soupy.

Suggestions:   If you overcook the Potatoes, use them for Hot Potato Salad  or Hash Browns.  Worrying about overcooking can lead to undercooking.  Don’t use them.  Return the spuds to the pot or finish them by steaming them in your microwave.  Without the right texture and taste, you’re better off starting over.    Garnish with Paprika, Cherry Tomatoes, shaved Radishes, Parsley Sprigs

Sweet and Sour Pork III

1000 folks tried Sweet and Sour Pork III on AllRecipes.com and I agree with their high rating.  There’s quite a few steps but it’s worth the effort.  To healthify it, I only use enough Oil in a PFOA-free pan to sear the Pork.   I add more colourful veggies and replace some of the Sugar with Erythritol and Green Stevia…no one was the wiser.

If you like umami, add a touch of Fish Sauce when seasoning the meat.  For more heat, add minced Jalapeno Pepper.

Serve over Chinese Rice Pilaf, garnish with toasted Sesame Seeds and Cilantro.

Guacamole

Holy Guacamole !  Food Network’s Alton Brown of Good Eat’s fame has a really good recipe for Game Day !  Great with The Better Chip Beets and Sea Salt tortilla chips.  Spinach & Kale and Jalapeno are good choices too.

I didn’t change the recipe one iota.  But if you want to double or triple the recipe, just click on this guacamole link to download a PDF.

To prevent browning, use barely ripe Avocados and press saran wrap on the surface of the dip and seal around the edges.  The Good Eat’s Guy says to let it sit for 2 hours at room temperature before serving.  Good Luck with that, I’m diggin’ in.

Curried Beef Stew

This Curried Beef Stew is based on GLICO curry paste.  Use the 110 or 220 gram package depending on the amount of meat you have on hand.  Simply sear Beef cubes that have been dredged in seasoned Flour.  Then place it in a crock pot.  Saute vegetables, add GLICO, plus other curry seasonings on hand and deglaze the pan with a bit of stock.  Add a can of Coconut Milk to your mixture and pour over the Beef. Several hours later you’ve got tender morsels of comfort food.  Serve over Chinese Pilaf and garnish with Cilantro.

For chicken, you can sear or broil pieces with or without the skin. Simmer the stew in a frying pan or dutch oven for 30 minutes or until tender.

Note:  Full fat Coconut Milk is good for you, but can always use low fat versions.  Another option is to place cans of Coconut Milk in the fridge ahead of time.  You can reserve the creamy fat that rises to the top for New Roots Herbal’s Salted Caramel Frosted Brownies and use the de-fatted liquid for your stew.  Voila !

Easy Refrigerator Pickles

We don’t always have time to buy jars, prep and heat process authentic Dill Pickles, right?!  You can use store-bought pickle juice or my leftover Pickled Eggs brine to pickle English or Field Cucumbers.

If you have a ten minutes, you can make this easy-refrigerator-pickles recipe. When I find deals on “less than perfect” English Cucumbers,  I “stripe” them with my peeler, slice them and put them in this simple brine.  Here’s the original Cooking Light video.
