i'm in the country in louisiana this weekend, and i could NOT find any red chile peppers... so i'm stuck with the jalapenos. here's what i've decided to do with these 3 thick salmon steaks:
1/2 jalapeno minced
3 T soy sauce
3 T maple syrup
2 tsp vanilla
2 tsp Mapleine (maple flavoring) this is sometimes hard-to-find, but wal-mart usually carries it. if not, see this site: http://www.hometownfavorites.com/shop/candy_cat_js.asp
1. again, use warm water to dissolve the syrup, and add-in the jalapeno too.
2. cool the mixture off with ice cubes and mix in the soy sauce, vanilla, and mapleine.
3. add the 3 salmon steaks and fill a SST bowl with cold water to cover the steaks.
4. let the steaks brine for 2-3 hours.
lightly season with kosher salt & fresh cracked pepper and place on the alderwood or cedar plank on the grill.
my Dad is making a light basting sauce of potlatch seasoning, maple syrup, and melted butter for his salmon...
i like my salmon well done and crispy on the edges... esp. when using a sweet brine or basting sauce.
again, this is my first attempt with this mixture using a vanilla lobster recipe as a guideline.
OK... HERE ARE THE RESULTS:
i give this little experiment a 7 out of 10... good enough to do again, but it requires a little more experimentation.
