You gotta love the Pacific Northwest for the seafood!  I decided to cook a Kokanee that Casey caught last summer with my Uncle John.  I have always thought it interesting that John, who has an incredible passion for fishing, doesn’t even like to eat fish unless it is smoked.  He is the master of cooking it to perfection in his smokehouse!  He will also share the fresh caught with friends and family.  I remember once going fishing with Uncle John.   I was pretty proud of what I came home with!  Man.. I wish I still had those boots 🙂

And just for fun I had to throw in this picture of my Grandpa Don.  He is pretty proud of these little fish and those are some great boots too!

Gather Up:

  •  Large fillet of salmon or two small fillets
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • juice from one lemon
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup olive oil (light or EVOO)
  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos
  • 1/4 water
  • 1/2 cup hazelnuts, chopped

Whisk all ingredients together except salmon and hazelnuts.

Pour into a 13×9 pan and let the salmon marinate for about 2 hours in the fridge.

When ready, heat grill to 400 degrees.  You can put a cedar plank on the grill rack while it heats and then place the salmon on that to cook for some more flavor.  Sprinkle on the hazelnuts.  Grill until meat is flaky and just turning opaque, about 20 to 25 minutes. This turned out perfect!!
