BBQ Season & Cancer Prevention

by

Grilled Salmon with Dry Mustard, Olive oil and Lemon juiceSalmon

I read a very informative article http://www.care2.com/greenliving/10-ways-to-cancer-proof-your-barbecue.html about grilling and cancer prevention.  As many people know the charred food is linked to the creation of carcinogens, which can increase your risk of cancer.  However, this article talks about ways to grill and prevent these risks and still enjoy a delicious meal from the grill.

I hadn’t realized until I read the article that I automatically have been using the right type of recipes on the grill!  I thought I would share one with my readers that can be varied to your own tastes.

Depending on the quantity of fish or chicken I am marinating would have an influence on the amount of olive oil and lemon juice.  Chicken I marinade in a ziplock bag overnight.  Fish I marinade about an hour to two hours maximum.

Salmon with lemon-olive oil and dry mustard

This recipe has a good kick from the dry mustard.

1-2 pounds salmon

1/2 tablespoon dry mustard, mixed with 2 tablespoons water (allow to sit for 10 minutes before mixing with other ingredients)

3 tablespoons lemon juice (freshly squeezed is the best)

3 tablespoons olive oil (not extra virgin, EVO burns at a high flame and gives off a toxic gas)

1 tablespoon Mirin

2-3 cloves garlic, minced

2 teaspoons fresh grated ginger

2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

sea salt to taste

fresh pepper to taste

One or two hours before grilling prepare marinade.  In a small bowl add lemon juice, mirin, garlic, ginger, cilantro, using a wire whisk,  mix ingredients.  Gradually add olive oil while whisking.  Cut salmon into serving pieces (4) and put into non-reactive dish 9×12 (Pyrex or ceramic work well).  Preheat grill on high flame until temperature reaches 600 degrees.  Turn heat to medium low and place fish skin side up on grill.  Cook for 4 minutes (depends on thickness of fish), turn fish to skin side down and grill for another 4-5 minutes (take care not to overcook fish).  Remove and turn off grill.  Serve with vegetables.

Lemon herb sauce

If anyone has been put on a yeast free or Candida diet they know how restrictive it can be.  As a personal chef, (Chef Gloria B)I have become familiar with the diet because of clients needs.  It is very challenging because there are so many restrictions.  However, this is my specialty  figuring out creative ways of helping people eat delicious foods, regardless of their dietary restrictions.  I have found this recipe to be very delicious on haddock.  It can be used on other fresh fish also.   I do emphasize the importance of fresh herbs.  Flavoring is challenging enough for a yeast free diet, maximize it with fresh herbs, fresh garlic, freshly squeeze lemon juice.

Lemon-Herb Sauce for Baked Haddock

1 pound fresh haddock (skin removed)

1/4 cup lemon juice

1/4 cup olive oil

1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano

1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme

1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat parsley

3 cloves garlic, minced

sprinkling of chili powder

sea salt, generous

Herbamare (found in Health food stores, it is sea salt that has been seeped for 1 year with twelve organic herbs and ground)

pepper to taste

Preheat oven 400 degrees.  In a small mixing bowl add lemon juice, herbs, garlic, gradually add olive oil while whisking lemon juice.  It should turn a dark yellow and get thicker.  Wash fish in cold water and pat dry with paper towels.  Cut into four pieces.  Place on well oiled stainless steel baking sheet.  Spread sauce on top of fish.  Sprinkle salt, pepper, Herbamare and chili powder on top of fish.  Place in oven for 9 minutes.  Remove from oven and check for to see if fish is done, serve immediately.
