Soy and Brown Sugar Salmon

Funny story first.......this salmon said on the package 'Wild Caught' salmon and was fairly inexpensive, can't recall the price off hand but I bought it put it in the fridge. Take it out yesterday to thaw and was reading the package and came across.....'caught in Alaskan or Japanese waters', okay I could handle that but a little futher down it said 'product of China'. WTF?? No wonder the state of the US economy sucks....we have outsourced our fish processing plants to China? REALLY?? Needless to say I will NOT purchase this fish again, yes I feel that strong about it! If I have to go visit Griff to catch salmon, fight grizzlies and drink sour toes, so be it. I will however not support another country if I can help it while our own people are out of jobs.

I combined equal parts soy sauce and brown sugar and then added chili flakes, garlic and onion. Let marinade for an hour then cooked indirect with a couple small pieces of apple wood until done. I thought I had a finished picture, but I guess the Maker's made it disappear. I will be doing this again soon if I can find US caught and processed salmon. Otherwise, I'll try it with an American caught bluefish or mackeral, something nice and fatty like a salmon. The finished product was fantastic!

A cheap $2 aluminum bowl is what you use when your FREE 18.5" Kettle doesn't come with one!

Crumbles up the fish and served over a nice salad of spring mix greens, grape tomatoes, cucumber, bell pepper and drizzled with a balsamic vinegarette. Very good dinner!
