“Smell the charcoal on the grill,
See the smoke, oh-how it thrills,
Take a peeksi,
What’s bright and pink?
It’s my Salmon!
All for li’l old me!” By vka

Salmon recipe serves 4
STEPS 1 (caper sauce):
1 cup good mayonnaise
2 tablespoons Kona Coast Hawaiian style honey mustard
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup chopped fresh dill
1 bunch green onion/scallions (white and green), cleaned, finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground [tri-color] pepper
3 tablespoons capers, drained
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
In the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade, place all the ingredients and process until smooth. Transfer to a glass bowl and cover tightly with plastic wrap; set aside to chill in the fridge for at least 1 hour (longer time is better) for flavors to meld.
STEPS 2 (marinating salmon):
2 pounds fresh salmon, boned, skinned
1/3 cup Mr. Yoshida Original Gourmet Sauce
Kosher salt or Gray salt, to taste
Freshly ground nutmeg, to taste
Freshly ground pepper or tri-color pepper, to taste
In a suitable sized dish pour Mr. Yoshida sauce and coat both side of fish, then lightly sprinkle nutmeg and generously sprinkle salt and pepper on both sides. Set salmon aside on counter to marinade, while you prepare the grill outside, following your manufacturer’s instructions.
STEPS 3 (cooking salmon):
When the coals are ready, grill salmon, about 4 to 5 minutes each side (depending on thickness of your fish) or until it is just cooked through, remove to a plate, cover, and allow it to rest for about 10 minutes.
Enjoy in a sandwich with toasted Ciabatta rolls, drizzled with the Caper Sauce, serve with rice, pasta or baked potatoes, or as we did, with a serving of asparagus. Enjoy!
Cook with heart; eat with gusto. Buen Provecho!
