Honey Barbecued Salmon Salad

The first cherries of the season.  They gave me a tummy ache!  I guess I need more fiber in my diet.

I had not made this recipe in years but I will be making it more often now.  This is a great way to prepare salmon.  I used Copper River salmon.
 Mix 1 C. ketchup and 1 C. of honey.  Depending on how much salmon you are making, you could cut this recipe in half.

 Add 2 T. rice vinegar and 1/4 cup of sweet mustard.  If you don't have sweet mustard, add 1/4 C. yellow mustard and another tablespoon of honey.

 Add 1 tsp. of hot sauce.  I used Gator Hammock because it has lots of flavor and not much heat.

 Add 3 T. firmly packed brown sugar, 1-1/2 tsp. paprika, 1 T. curry powder, 1 tsp. soy sauce, 1 tsp. minced garlic, 1 tsp. vegetable oil, 1/2 tsp. worcestershire sauce, 1/2 tp. fresh lemon juice and 1/4 tp. ground black pepper. Mix thoroughly.

 Place your salmon in the sauce and cover with plastic.  Place in the refrigerator for several hours or overnight.

 Remove it from the fridge about 30 minutes before cooking.

 This is delicious done on the grill.  I did not want to fire up the grill for just 2 pieces so I used my grill pan.

 Sear on both sides over high heat.

 Serve it over some fresh garden lettuce and drizzle it with the dressing which you can see in the top photo. 


2 T. balsamic vinegar
1 tsp. maple syrup or honey
1/2 C. olive oil
1 T. fresh cilantro
1 T. diced shallot or sliced green onions
S&P to taste

I do like fried salmon (or grilled) so this is something I would like to try even if there's mustard in the sauce :-) :-)

Have a great day!
I can almost taste it, very good!
Salmon needs *help.* This sounds like a delicious *way to help salmon.* :-)

Sorry the cherries gave you a tummy ache. But they are beautiful, aren't they?

The cherries are really lovely! I had a tummy ache the other day from eating the first green grapes I had eaten in a long time.

The salmon sounds absolutely delicious! I will have to give it a try.

The hubby would love that
LOVE it. Salmon is my favorite fish.
Mmm, looks delicious! I love salmon, but the hubby does not, so he gets haddock when I have salmon! Love your marinade recipe too!

Have a great day!
Salmon is my favorite fish too. I buy wild salmon. This recipe sounds great, Joyce. I learn so much from you. I talk about you a lot...well..you know that.

I'm so going to try this! I love Salmon and still have some of our silvers left. I know I'll love this. Hubby won't eat salmon anymore because he ate too much while he lived in Alaska, he'll eat it fresh off the line but grumbles otherwise. But this is perfect for me!
