Charcoal grilled salmon with spicy black bean

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
½ pounds Black Beans; soaked
1 small Onion; chopped
1 small Carrot
½ Celery Rib
2 ounces Ham; chopped
2 Jalapeno Peppers; stemmed and diced
1 Clove Garlic
1 Bay Leaf; tied together with
3 Sprigs Thyme
5 cups Water
2 Cloves Garlic; minced
½ teaspoon Hot Pepper Flakes
½ Lemon; juiced
1 Lemon; juiced
⅓ cup Olive Oil
2 tablespoons Fresh Basil; chopped
24 ounces Salmon Steaks

Combine in a large saucepan the beans, onion, carrot, celery, ham, jalapenos, whole clove garlic, bay leaf with thyme, and water. Simmer until beans are tender, about 2 hours, adding more water as necessary to keep the beans covered. Remove the carrot, celery, herbs and garlic, and drain off the remaining cooking liquid. Toss the beans with the minced garlic, hot pepper flakes and the juice of ½ a lemon. Set aside.

While the beans are cooking, combine the juice of a whole lemon, olive oil, and basil leaves. Pour over the salmon steaks, and refrigerate for 1 hour. Grill the salmon over a moderately high flame for 4-5 minutes per side, basting with some of the marinade every minute. Serve each steak with a portion of beans.
