with Honey Soy Glaze
1 cup wood chips: alder, hickory,
oak or mesquite
4 7-ounce SeaMazz frozen skinless
salmon ;llets, thawed
HONEY SOY GLAZE
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon lemon pepper
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Prepare a medium-hot ;re in your grill.
Prepare the glaze: In a bowl, whisk honey, soy sauce, lemon pepper and
Add a kiss of smoke. For a charcoal grill, throw 1 cup of water-soaked and
drained wood chips on ashed-over coals. For a gas grill, place 1 cup dry wood
chips on a piece of aluminum foil, create a packet and poke holes in the top
of the packet before placing it near a heat source.
When you see the ;rst wisp of smoke from the wood, place the salmon on the
grill grates and close the lid of the grill. Grill for 3-4 minutes or until you can turn
the ;sh easily and one side has good grill marks. Brush the grill-marked side
with the glaze, close the lid and grill for 3-4 minutes more or until the ;sh is
done to your liking. To serve, transfer the ;sh to a platter and drizzle with any
remaining glaze. Makes 4 servings.
