Brine for Smoked Salmon
This brine was awesome. I pretty much followed the original recipe, take or give an orange or two. I also had 4.5lbs of salmon and it was just the right amount, so I imagine you can cut it in half for about 2.5lbs and fewer. Some said they changed it so that it wouldn't be that sweet. I didn't find it that sweet at all even with all of the sugar. I imagine you could come some of the white out. I put the fish in the brine for about 11 hours, took out the fish, and let filets sit in the fridge over night. I soaked cedar planks for 30 minutes in the brine. I smoked the fish for about 3-4 hours at 175F using a mixture of apple and hickory. It was amazing. Thanks for this recipe.

Thai Green Curry Chicken
This was my second time to make this. My girlfriend and I love it, and everyone else who has tried it has loved it too. I pretty much follow the recipe directly. However, I thought the sauce was a little thick for my taste the first time I made it, so this time I boiled about half a cup of water with 1 tbspn of sugar and a teaspoon of chicken bouillon. I then added it with the coconut milk, fish sauce, and soy sauce. You can really go a lot of ways when adding stuff to this also. I par boiled about 2 small sweet potatoes cut into 1/2 inch pieces, and I added 2 zucchini about half way in to browning the chicken, also cut into 1/2 pieces. I then added them when adding the chicken back into the curry and they tendered up while simmering. It was awesome!!!!!!!!
