Still Here!

Just a note:  I haven't forgotten thee, O Blog!  When Jim was last home, he was able to load my new photos on the computer but now I can't find them!

But he will be home again in a week, plus I'll be cooking again.  So give me a few weeks and I should be back on a regular basis.

Looking forward!  Kay

Grilled Salmon with Chorizo Olive Sauce

Grilled Salmon with Chorizo-Olive Sauce Recipe

I ran across this recipe a few months ago and saved it for a weekend when Jim was home.  We both love salmon and chorizo so I figured this would be a good one.  Not to mention how fast and easy it is to prepare.

A note:  don't omit the small amount of grated orange really takes it up a notch.


3 links (3-4 oz each) fresh chorizo
4 green onions, chopped
2 tsp minced fresh garlic
1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes, drained
1/4 cup chopped pitted green onions
1/2 tsp grated orange peel
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
4 salmon fillets (4-6 oz each)

Remove chorizo from casings.  In a large ovenproof skillet on a stove or grill, cook chorizo, green onions and garlic over medium-high heat, crumbling sausage until no longer pink, 4-6 minutes; drain.

Reduce heat to medium.  Add tomatoes, olives, and orange peel; stir to combine.  Sprinkle S&P over salmon.

On a greased grill rack, grill salmon, covered, over medium heat, 3-4 minutes per side, or until fish just begins to flakes easy with a fork (about 10 minutes per inch).  Top with chorizo mixture.
