cherry chipotle sauce last week I've been thinking about glazing some salmon with it. And because salmon works well smoked on cedar planks it seemed a natural trifecta!
All I can say is what a waste to each of the three components! The delicious punchy but sublte cherry chipotle was like the little mousey girl who shows up at an over the top fashion show - invisible!!! The cedar plank was overpowering - think sumo wrestler visiting a kindergarten class. And that vividly coral salmon fillet????? Well it looked pretty, but what a waste.
So the lesson in all this.....remember, less is often more!!! The salmon would work well roasted in the oven with the cherry chipotle sauce (you can use this recipe as a base, just forget about the dill, lemon and paprika). Or BBQ the salmon on the cedar plank with just a little lemon juice.
Combining all three, now that I think about it, is like when my niece Katie comes over to play dress up - have you got that picture in your mind? Very cute on a six year old, but not so cute on food!
