Ted's Honey-Glazed Salmon

as promised, i have a Savannah Bee Company recipe to share with you.

1 lb fresh salmon filet
1 Tbs white wine vinegar
2 tsp dijon mustard
2 tsp Savannah Bee Company Grill Honey
fresh ground pepper & salt
1 Tbs olive oil
fresh rosemary
1 Tbs freshly squeezed lemon juice

preheat grill to 350
( if you use a cedar grilling plan, prepare as directed. i don't)
make slits in salmon along the grain every 1-2 inches
pour vinegar & lemon juice over filet, coat both sides.

mix evoo, mustard & grill honey in a small saucepan over low heat.
blend mixture into an emulsioin.

pour 1/2 over fish
strip the leaves of the rosemary into filet slits.

place fish skin side down on plank, or grill
pour remaining mixture over filet

salmon should reach an internal temp of 135-145 ( approx 15 min)
drizzle grill honey liberally over top & turn up heat to 450
after 1-2 minutes remove filets & let stand for 5 minutes.

i also served steamed green beans with feta & dill

1 (12-oz) bag microwavable fresh green beans
3–5 sprigs fresh dill, finely chopped
2 oz feta cheese
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup Greek vinaigrette

Microwave beans in bag on HIGH 4–5 minutes until tender.
Chop dill (2 tablespoons); place in medium bowl. 
Chop feta coarsely or crumble while adding to dill.
Remove beans from packaging and immediately plunge into cold water to stop the cooking process; drain and pat dry.
Add beans to dill and feta; stir in pepper and dressing. 
Chill until ready to serve. Stir once before serving.


did you know that tupelo honey is only harvested
during two weeks in the springtime?

when we were in savannah, the fresh tupelo for 2011 was not yet available, 
but should be released today!

Yummy Paige! I have to try this one!

I got lost in your blog today, again, and I baked the chicken in a crock pot with broth, cumin, garlic powder, salt and pepper. I shredded it and used it in a taco salad, healthy and delish.

Simple thoughts is one of my favorite stops in blog land...

I tried some of that Winter White honey last time I was in Savannah. It was delicious!
