Cedar planked salmon

Cedar planked salmon

1 wild sockeye salmon filet
fresh dill
fresh sage
fresh green onion
fresh grated ginger

Soak cedar plank for 1 to 4 hours. Place salmon filet on plank and cover with chopped dill, sage and green onion. Sprinkle the grated ginger across the top of the salmon filet. Preheat barbecue on high heat for about 20 minutes, then turn heat to medium low on outer burners and turn the heat off directly below the cedar plank. Leave the lid closed and let this cook for approximately 20 minutes. Turn heat on medium low below salmon for ten minutes with lid up. Remove the cedar plank and transfer salmon to serving plate.

Garden fresh

No recipe today, sorry.

But for the first time since Shannon and I have been together, we have a vegetable garden. We've got red lettuce, romaine lettuce, grape tomatoes, beefsteak tomatoes, zucchini, butternut squash, long english cucumbers, green beans, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, carrots, red onions, green onions, garlic, dill, oregano, sage and rhubarb in the garden. It's only 4 feet by 8 feet, so it's a little over crowded. Next year we'll go without the cucumber and squash and dill.

We've already eaten lettuce, green onions and green beans. We've also got strawberries underneath a large rhododendron and have had super sweet strawberries too. Fresh from the garden is just so much better than supermarket veggies from the opposite side of North America.
