Grilled Lime Mustard Salmon; Secret Recipe Club

Time flies…..

It seems like I just did the Secret Recipe Club and yet here it is again….

Okay, not quite. This isn’t the regular monthly event but a special recipe collection to kick-start summer featuring Picnic and Barbecue Foods.SRC-300x75

As you all know we cook everything (almost) on the barbecue in summer so this is a great way to get the season started.

This month I got to explore Cheese Curd in Paradise.

When I saw the name I thought it must be a Wisconsin-based blog (cheese curds, and all) and, yes, Ashley and family do live in my home state, although on the other side from where I grew up.

Knowing how seriously people in the Midwest take summer and outdoor cooking I guessed it would be easy to find barbecue recipes on her blog.

I was right…. I had a hard time deciding but ultimately went with the Grilled Key Lime and Mustard Salmon.

Although I’m not sure how the ‘key lime’ fits in…. maybe a winter break in Florida?

We don’t have key limes in France.

Or sour cream.

Okay, I modified this recipe a lot more than usual, but I kept to the spirit if it.

We were most pleased.

Ashley has a lot of recipes on her blog and one section is devoted to grilling.

For a side there is Grilled Corn, Tomato and Bacon Salad. I planted sweet corn this year so that went on my list of things to make.

Grilled Romaine with Blue Cheese, Bacon Vinaigrette is on the list as I have Romaine planted as well.

We’ll try the Grilled Chicken Caprese as soon as the tomatoes and basil are big enough.

And the Pimento Cheeseburgers look fantastic! I still have pimientos from our last trip to Spain.

For those of you who like hot she has a Grilled Tandoori Chicken, as well as lots of things with hot peppers and pepper sauce.

Go. Look. Cook.

As to the rest of the grilling ideas….
