A few of you have asked for a recipe from Sexy Food. Here goes…
I was doing a tasting for a wedding, and last minute, they wanted a fish entree in addition to meat and chicken. I poured some Carolina style BBQ sauce over salmon and popped it in the oven. (Use parchment paper underneath.) I thought because it has a mustard base, it would be a good match. It’s the dish they picked!
You can buy Carolina style sauce most places, but in case you can’t find it, here is a quick recipe. Blend a spicy mustard with some yellow mustard. Add a little liquid smoke (I like Hickory better than Mesquite), some brown sugar and some maple syrup. Please use real maple syrup, not pancake syrup. They are not the same. Pure maple syrup is more expensive, but I just wait until it’s on sale.
Play around with it until you come up with your special blend. You may want it sweeter. You may want to put some pepper in. It’s your show!
