Grilled Pork Tenderloin Stone Fruit Salad

Grilled Pork Tenderloin & Stone Fruit Salad

I usually prefer to smoke pork tenderloin, but this grilled pork dish offers a triple hit of the fruit with an apricot preserve glaze for the tenderloin plus a grilled apricot and watercress salad with an apricot-spiked vinaigrette.

Serve with a chilled beer, or Chardonnay for you fancy types, both of which will harmonize beautifully with the smoky-sweetness of grilled apricots.

Cajun Honey Butter Grilled Salmon

Cajun Honey Butter Grilled Salmon

Certainly one of our favorite recipes for Spring. If you’re not familiar with cedar plank salmon, it’s time to get familiar with this simple yet ancient cooking technique.

Grilling fresh fish on a wood cedar plank, and other appropriate wood species creates the difference between a mediocre cookout and an incredible backyard cooking memory.

The three keys to the recipe are the choice of fish to be grilled, the quality of the cedar plank and the ancient American Indian art of wood plank cooking.
