Spicy Lemongrass Mayo


Thank You Kelsey Nixon! Kelsey served it with a chicken burger and pickled Asian slaw. We have been buying grass-fed beef and it makes for a great grilled burger. Served with homemade dill pickles and roasted red potatoes.

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons chili sauce, such as Sriracha
  • 1 tablespoon bruised and finely minced lemongrass (I used Gourmet Garden Lemongrass Paste)
  • Zest and juice of 1 lime
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

Grilled Salmon with Lime, Chili, Garlic, Jalapeno Sauce

Fast and easy!

And YUM-elicious!

1 pound Shetland or Sockeye Salmon
3-4 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon chili power
1 tablespoon cumin
2 gloves garlic, minced
1 jalapeno, seeded and minced
salt and pepper

I grilled this outside. I took the salmon out of the fridge 30 minutes before grilling and covered it with the sauce. I always put the salmon skin side on aluminum foil--no need to turn over. I grilled it for about 15--20 minutes on high heat. Check at 15.

Can be broiled or baked in oven; 425 for about 15--20 minutes.

I served it with fresh corn-on-the-cob from a farm down the street. And a parsley mashed  potato and sweet potato mix.
