Lemon Pepper Pork Chops

Recipes posted a year ago:

The other night, I was looking for a quick weeknight recipe to take advantage of the warmer weather we are finally starting to experience here in the Pacific Northwest.  Rather than fall back on the standby of using a pre-mixed herb blend from the spice drawer, I decided to try something using fresh ingredients instead.  The resulting lemon pepper marinade was great with pork chops, and would be equally tasty with chicken or fresh shrimp and scallops.

Lemon Garlic and Ginger Shrimp

Recipes posted a year ago:

The other night, I had elk steaks thawed out to go on the grill, and Karen had picked up a pound of pre-cooked shrimp from our local seafood market.  Since steak and shrimp go together so well, I decided to throw this together to compliment the steaks.  The prep and cooking time are almost nothing since the shrimp are already cooked – so you can get the ingredients ready and quickly cook them while your steaks are “resting” after coming off the grill.

Grilled Salmon with Hazelnuts

You gotta love the Pacific Northwest for the seafood!  I decided to cook a Kokanee that Casey caught last summer with my Uncle John.  I have always thought it interesting that John, who has an incredible passion for fishing, doesn’t even like to eat fish unless it is smoked.  He is the master of cooking it to perfection in his smokehouse!  He will also share the fresh caught with friends and family.  I remember once going fishing with Uncle John.   I was pretty proud of what I came home with!  Man.. I wish I still had those boots 🙂

And just for fun I had to throw in this picture of my Grandpa Don.  He is pretty proud of these little fish and those are some great boots too!

Wine & Herb Grilled Salmon

I made this recipe up years ago for a camping trip with extended family, and then sort of forgot about it over time.  Karen’s mom, however, didn’t – because it was the only time Karen’s dad actually ate fish, and then asked for seconds.  So when the family was recently planning a birthday party for Karen’s brother, I was asked if I could do “that recipe” again.  The only problem: I never wrote it down the first time.

After some head scratching, and a little experimentation, I was able to recreate the original recipe.  And when cooked over an open fire or wood-burning grill, it is just as good as I remembered it from years ago.
