Still Blog of the Week, so have some grill recipes

It’s official, my reign of terror as ‘Blog of the Week’ continues into uncharted territory as we enter day 11.

Actually there’s no terror involved, instead I figured I’d post some recipes for the grill that I didn’t have room to include in an upcoming tab.

If you see her, thank Christina Rittenbach at the Stutsman County NDSU Extension Service for submitting these. You know they’re good because Lance Brower did not submit them.

Happy grilling and keeps your eyes peeled for one dang fine grilling tab to be inserted in an upcoming issue of The Jamestown Sun.

 Grilled Salmon

Omega-3-rich salmon steaks hold up well on the grill. Plus, since they’re usually sliced to a uniform thickness, they cook evenly. Before you light the fire, coat the rack with cooking spray so the fish won’t stick to it.

 1 Tbsp. smoked paprika

1 tsp. black pepper

1 tsp. salt

1 pound salmon steaks

About 4 tsp. honey

Mix the spices together in a small bowl. Rub the mixture evenly over the salmon. Grill for five minutes per side, drizzling lightly with a squeeze from the honey container (about 1 tsp. per steak) just before they’re done. Makes four servings.
