Take it easy......Grill Salmon & Slaw
During the dog days of August, I like to keep it light for dinner. I don't like heating up the kitchen and making a big deal.
Jersey corn and tomatoes make a fine meal with some nice white wine.......
Here, I made my old school coleslaw and grilled some salmon for the top.
No fuss dinner. How summer should be.
Old School Coleslaw:
1/2 head of green or Napa cabbage, sliced
1/2 head of red/purple cabbage, sliced
2 carrots, sliced into thin ribbons
bunch of scallions, sliced
1 cup of Hellmann's Real Mayonnaise
1/4 cup cider vinegar
3 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp grainy mustard
salt & pepper
Mix the dressing ingredients with a fork and set aside.
Mix all the sliced vegetables in a large bowl and pour the dressing over the cabbage.
Place the slaw in the fridge for a few hours, so the flavors have time to mingle.
For the Salmon:
Mix equal parts grainy mustard and maple syrup.
Sprinkle fish w/ kosher salt and spread mustard mixture on top.
I grill my fish on foil (you can also bake the fish at 425F for 20 minutes). I don't turn the salmon, I cook it skin side down on the grill about 18 minutes, depending on the thickness.
Place a piece of grilled salmon on top of a plate of coleslaw.
You will be happy you made this easy dinner.
