Barbecued salmon with strawberry mint and cucumber salsa

Yield: 6 servings

Measure Ingredient
6 Salmon Fillets, skinless, about 6 oz each
1 English Cucumber, finely chopped
1 Green Onion, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon Fresh Mint, cut into thin strips
4 tablespoons Seasoned Rice Wine Vinegar
2 cups Fresh Strawberries, hulled and finely diced
½ cup Unsalted Butter
1 Clove Garlic, finely chopped
1 tablespoon Honey
2 tablespoons Soy Sauce
1 tablespoon Fresh Lemon Juice



For best results, prepare salsa 1 hour ahead. In a medium bowl, mix cucumber, green onion, mint and vinegar. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for 1 hour. Just before serving, stir in strawberries.

To prepare barbecue sauce, in a small saucepan melt butter with garlic over low heat. Stir in honey, soy sauce and lemon juice and cook for 2 minutes. Set aside.

Prepare fire in a charcoal grill. When coals are ready, brush sauce on salmon pieces and place in a well-oiled fish-grilling rack. Place rack over coals about 4 inches from fire and grill approximately 4-5 minutes on each side. Brush with sauce again after turning, then baste again with barbecue sauce as it finishes cooking. You can tell when fish is done when it is just barely firm and resilient to touch.

To serve, open rack and remove fish fillets with a spatula. Transfer to a warm platter and top with Strawberry, Mint and Cucumber Salsa.
