What I cooked tonight - salmon with bourbon dijon glaze and strawberry salsa

Well, I decided to try a couple of new things tonight. I decided to do them all at once. I did 2 12oz salmon filets the way I usually do, at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes, with alder smoke. I placed the fish on foil, on a porcelain flat thing with holes, on the grate in its normal position. I used Gretl's bourbon dijon glaze. Very nice. I also dumped strawberry salsa all over it, very nice, also. However, I think the two should be mutually exclusive. The salsa completely covered up the glaze. I think in the future, I'll do one or the other. Anyway, here is what I used for the salsa, based on an earlier post from Q.N.E.Tyme....[p]I chopped up a small tomato about the size of a small baseball. (Speaking of baseball, did I mention my son's team won the NC 4A State Championship? Oh, that's right, I did. Photos can be found at www.nakedwhiz.com/champs/champs.htm) I chopped up two very large strawberries, about the size of very small baseballs. (Speaking of baseball, did I mention my son's team won the NC 4A State Championship? Oh, that's right, I did. Photos can be found at www.nakedwhiz.com/champs/champs.htm) I chopped up about 1/2 of a red onion that started out the size of a very large baseball. (Speaking of baseball, did I mention my son's team won the NC 4A State Championship? Oh, that's right, I did. Photos can be found at www.nakedwhiz.com/champs/champs.htm) Then I added lime juice, a wee bit (about 5 thin slices) of finely chopped jalapeno, 1/2 tsp salt, a good cranking of fresh ground black pepper, about 1/3 cup of yellow corn, and enough chopped cilantro to make it look nice. I'd say about 2 Tbsp?? Oh, and 1 clove of crushed garlic. Mix well and let sit for a couple of hours so the flavors can blend. [p]One other curious note. My wife looked at the recipe for Gretl's glaze and started looking sick. Needless to say, I asked why. Confession time!! It seems that in her youth, she had a somewhat unpleasant and apparently unforgettable encounter with a bottle of bourbon. Apparently, the bottle of bourbon won. So, fwiw, I made two batches of glaze and for my wife's I substituted equal parts apple cider vinegar and balsamic vinegar for the bourbon. She said she liked it. [p]TNW
