juice of 1/2 lemon

1 tsp. sugar or liquid sugar syrup to taste

Linda (aka Fitness Dame):

Grilled Lemon an Dill Salmon

Most people don't think of making fish on the grill, but it comes out to die for!

l312812576

Ingredients

1 1/2 lbs. salmon

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons fresh dill

1 garlic clove, minced

1 tablespoon lemon juice

salt and pepper to taste

 

Directions:

* Make sure you spray some cooking oil on grill before turning it on. This will prevent fish from sticking.

1. In a small bowl, combine oil, herbs, garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper.  

2. Using a pastry brush, brush salmon with herbed mixture. 

3. Cook on barbecue until done (salmon is done when it flakes when tested with a fork.)

Gaucho-Style Steak with Chimichurri Sauce

Unknown-1

Ingredients
Argentinian Chimichurri Sauce:

1 cup lightly packed chopped parsley (ideally, flat leaf "Italian" parsley)
3 to 5 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/2 teaspoon chili pepper flakes
2 tablespoons fresh oregano leaves (optional)
2 tablespoons shallot or onion, minced
3/4 cup vegetable or olive oil
3 tablespoons sherry wine vinegar, or red wine vinegar
3 tablespoons lemon juice

Steak:
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
3 tablespoons salt
2 1/2 pounds rib-eye, New York strip, or sirloin steak, 1 1/2 inches thick
2 baguettes, sliced into 1/4-inch-thick slices
 
Directions:
 
Preheat a grill.

Place all chimichurri sauce ingredients in a blender or food processor and pulse until well chopped, but not pureed. Reserve.

Dissolve cayenne pepper and salt in 1 cup hot water. Transfer to a squeeze container.

Place the steak directly over a hot grill, baste with the chimichurri grilling sauce, and grill until the outer portion of the meat reaches the desired degree of doneness. Remove the steak from the grill and slice long strips from the outer edges of the steak. Instruct guests to pick up a steak slice from the cutting board with their fingers, place it on a slice of baguette, and enjoy. Return the remaining steak to the grill, baste, and grill until more of the steak is cooked. Remove and repeat the slicing and serving procedure until steak is consumed. For extra spicy steak, baste 2 or 3 additional times with the cayenne pepper mixture during grilling process. Spoon chimichurri sauce over steak.
