my wife and i were at a buffet a few weeks ago that served up a really good salmon, and she told me to try to replicate it on the egg. . .it turned out really good, although as i'll discuss below, the relish could use some more work. .. .[p]first, i set up the egg direct at 400 degrees, with a layer of lemon slices on the grid (i really like doing this for salmon, adds great flavor and makes the fish really easy to turn)[p]LinkPhoto?GUID=42f3688a-7303-6aca-1fdf-5a9b6af31f74&size=lg
[p]sprinkled a light coat of Dizzy Raging River Rub on the salmon, and put it on the grid skin side up to start for about 7 minutes. . .turned the fish then brushed on a light coat of hoisin sauce. . grilled for about 7 more minutes until done. .. [p]LinkPhoto?GUID=2f01647a-2d7e-f488-1949-21031aff3c5c&size=lg
[p]made up a relish of:[p]1 diced mango
1 diced red pepper
1 cup frozen corn
fresh chopped cilantro
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon hoisin sauce[p](let it all mix and set for a couple of hours. . .it was good, but next time, i think i'll leave out the sesame oil and maybe put in a splash of orange or pineapple juice. .. nothing sacrocinct to this recipe). .. we really liked it with the fish though, even as is. . .[p]here it is served up with roasted baby white potatos and a salad. . .[p]LinkPhoto?GUID=4896bdd4-6eec-766f-3f63-669c5c4255fa&size=lg[p][p]

    mad max beyond eggdome,[p]I love the lemon slices! I had a bit of trouble flipping my salmon and will try that next time. I bet my grid won't smell so bad next time, either.[p]Joyce

  • mad max beyond eggdome,
    Have you tried putting another layer of lemon slices on your fillets after the sauce? Perhaps even orange/tangerine slices? I've tried similar with good results. Looks tasty!

  • mad max beyond eggdome,
    dude - a stroke of genius.

  • your wyoming connection,
    a big thanks to naked whiz and chef wil for finally teaching the unteachable to the ignorant. . ..

  • QBabe,
    as i typed the heading it just sounded so much like one of your headers and creations that i couldn't help myself. .. [p]already looking forward to waldorf in may. .. hope you and larry will be there again this year. ..

  • char buddy ,
    wish i could claim credit (assume you are talking about the lemon slices), but i think i got that off the food channel, maybe even a raichlin episode. . .

  • mad max beyond eggdome,
    Judging from previous post like the crab cake recipe and now this one , I bet the Naked Whiz's ears perks up pretty good when you got some cooking to do or splain. Great stuff Max. You definately been paying attention.

  • Chet,
    thx. . . the crab crake recipe layout on the dizzypig site was the master work of nature boy. .. i had given him a cd-rom with a microsoft word package i'd done, and then he ripped his hair out figuring out how to post it. .. .posting on the forum like this is thanks to wil and wiz's ability to make me understand hpphoto. . .which now that i know how to do it is a breeze. . .duhhh.
