Happy Cinco de Mayo Recipes
BBQ Grilled Salmon:
8 oz. Wild Sockeye Salmon (or any non-farmed salmon), with skin
1 Bottle Organic Barbeque Sauce of Choice
Place the salmon in a glass baking dish or Tupperware and top with BBQ sauce. Cover with saran wrap and refrigerate for 1-3 hours.
Heat the grill to medium (or a griddle skillet over medium heat)
Place the salmon, skin-down, on a double layer of (organic if you can) heavy-duty aluminum foil.
Grill covered for 10-15 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. (If using a griddle, it takes a bit longer since it isn’t covered.)
Jalapeno Grilled Corn on the Cob
2 Organic Ears of Corn, remove the husks and any silks on them, wash them
Coconut Oil Cooking Spray
2 TB Ghee, clarified butter
½ Jalapeno, minced and seeds removed
Spray the cobs with coconut cooking oil and place them on the grill. Cook covered for 15-20 minutes, turning every 5.
Melt the butter and place the minced jalapeno in it.
Drizzle the cobs with ½-1 TB jalapeno butter each.
