Prep Time15 minutes
Ideal Cooking Time15 minutes
Number of servings2 portions
½ cup of Three Knocks Sticke Alt
2 filets of salmon, boneless
1 cedar plank (you’ll find this at your local grocery shop or hardware store)
2 large red peppers, washed
1 large white onion, peeled and sliced lengthwise, in two rings (keeping rings together)
2 medium tomatoes, washed and cored
1 or 2 jalapeños, washed (use one or two — depending on your heat tolerance)
4 cloves of garlic, peeled
2 tbsp of olive oil
½ tbsp of brown sugar
½ tbsp of salt
¼ tbsp of fresh ground pepper
- Turn your BBQ on high.
If you don’t have a BBQ — or you’ve already packed it up for the year — turn on your oven’s broiler.
- Soak the cedar plank in water for 10 minutes prior to using. (Follow manufacturer’s instructions.)
- In a bowl, coat whole peppers, onion rings, jalapeños, tomatoes and garlic with 1 tbsp of olive oil.
- Place veggies on the BBQ (or in the oven) and roast until the skin begins to blister and turn black, approx. 7-10 min.
- Place charred veggies back into the bowl, cover tightly with plastic wrap and let rest 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile, mix the Three Knocks, brown sugar, remaining olive oil, salt and pepper. Mix well.
- Remove cedar from soaking, pat dry. Take salmon filet, pat dry and place on cedar plank.
- Lightly brush ½ tbsp of the brown sugar and oil mixture onto each filet. Reserve remaining oil mix.
- BBQ or bake salmon at 350° for 5-7 minutes per half inch, depending on the thickness of the filet.
- While Salmon is cooking, peel charred skin and seeds from the peppers and tomatoes — get rid of that stuff.
- Chop the garlic, jalapeños, peppers, onions and tomatoes and dress them with remaining oil mixture you’ve put aside. Let stand until salmon is ready.
- Serve salmon warm with mixed salad and a pint of Three Knocks.
