Shrimp Etoufee III

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2010
I used butter instead of margarine. I used banana peppers instead of bell peppers (that’s what I had in my garden). I chopped the celery instead of slicing it. I cooked the onions in butter then added the celery and peppers then more butter. When all were soft, I added ½ cup of water and the shrimp. Instead of corn starch, while the shrimp were cooking, I made a roux with butter and flour and used chicken broth instead of water. When the shrimp were nearly done, I added the chicken broth gravy and cooked over medium heat until it reached the right consistency (probably 10 more minutes beyond the 20 minutes in the original recipe. It was great!

Alder Plank Smoked Salmon

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2009
This was my first attempt at smoking salmon and it turned out great. I used an Orion Cooker so it took a little improvising I thought I would share. I used about half as much charcoal as usual. After starting the charcoal I waited till the apple wood and alder wood chips started to smoke before putting the alder planks and the salmon on the top two grlls. I had to saw the planks in a circular shape to fit the grill and used the scraps from that along with apple wood for the smoking. I smoked it for 30 minutes and took the lid off to prevent over heating and put the lid back after about 5 minutes and smoked another 30 minutes. Then I took the lid off and basted with the brown sugar mixture and smoked for another 30 minutes. I smoke two 3 pound filets from the grocery store. Where I live fresh caught wild is not an option. I wish it was. But it was great anyway. BoRoo
