Sunday Seafood

Fresh Market had some nice Sockeye salmon, which inspired me to a seafood theme for Sunday dinner. A little EVOO, dill, lemon, and black pepper:
On the Egg at 300, indirect:
They had some good looking shrimp too, which I skewered and dusted with Raging River:
Finally, after Friday night's fishing expedition with the kids, they were definitely going to eat some of their catch (particularly after I spent the time to gut them). A little Tsunami Spin:
Pulled the salmon at 35 minutes (probably should have been about 5 minutes sooner). Parker had the camera at this point, hence the odd angle:
Bit of a scramble, here after pulling off the salmon. Switched quickly to direct technique, and got the shrimp on with the asparagus:
Last, but not least, the bream. Had to add the extender to get the basket in. (Anybody here thinking that Chris needs a second Egg? :whistle: ):
Ready to ring the dinner bell:
Finally, the obligatory shot of kids. First, Ellie Grace and Snowball:
Emily, in a particularly good mood, since she got the ok for her boyfriend to come over after dinner:

    Great looking cook there Chris! That salmon looks fantastic! I may have to get some and make some lox. ;)
    Always a treat when the kids get to eat their own catch! ;) :laugh:

    Well, thank you--I've been curious about the technique of smoking salmon, as well as cheese. I'm thinking it would make for some great Christmas gifts--my wife thinks I'm just looking for an excuse to buy a vac saver. :woohoo:
  • Yes, I would say that you need a 2nd egg by the looks of all that food.
    Good luck and I hope you get one soon.

    Happily egging on my original large BGE since 1996... now the owner of 6 eggs. Call me crazy, everyone else does!

    I think I just about have my wife convinced as to the "necessity" of the purchase.

    Great looking food, and fine photos, but I have to comment on the girls (or rather one of them). Quite a coincidence, we named our little girl (now five months old) Elizabeth Grace, and we also call her Elly.
