Grilled Asian Salmon with
Sweet Pickled Cucumbers

Recipe courtesy of Celeste Podojil

1 salmon filet per person, skin on is fine
1/4 cup Soy Sauce
1/4cup Terraki
1 teaspoon garlic, minced, the kind in the tube is great
1 teaspoon minced ginger, tube again
3 T brown sugar
2 T Dijon mustard
2 T honey
2 T olive oil

Mix all ingredients in a Ziploc bag and add the salmon to marinate for
30 minutes to 1 hour; longer if needed for your tailgate.

Note: You don't have to measure if you don't want to...just throw
everything together or omit anything you don't have on hand.

Sweet Pickled Cucumbers
Sliced English cucumbers and/or pickling cucumbers,
do not peel (use a mandolin or slice as thin as possible)
1 teaspoon salt
1 T sugar
1 t white sesame seeds
1 t black sesame seeds
Rice wine vinegar

Place cucumbers in a jar or container with a tight fitting lid,
add all ingredients and cover with rice wine vinegar.

Make at least 1 day in advance to allow cucumbers to soak up sweet and salty flavors.

You can serve as an entree or make a burger out of it....a toasted poppy seed bun would be delish!
