Editor's Qs

I know this is not a question, but I thought it was good information worth sharing with you. Doug is one of my loyal subscribers. And he wrote me this email with some additional information about grilling fish. He's got some really good ideas.

Hey Jeff,

I'm back, or still here. Was reading your info on Grilled Salmon. My wife and I eat a lot of salmon. The grill is always very difficult because of the sticking. The info is correct, very clean grill and oil it. Always oil the salmon before.

Now the tip. I made a special spatula for turning the fish. Very thin stainless steel about 6"x 14" 1/16" thick with two 1/4" rods welded on each end. An old wooden broom handle drilled and put on the rods. Sharpened the one end for easy sliding under the salmon.

Slide under, turn a 1/4 turn and pull it out. Little oil on the lifter keeps the fish from sticking. Anyone can find someone to make it or let me know. It's a little bigger than a license plate, bent the rods up about 20 deg.

Number one thing with salmon, or any fish, is "over cooked fish". Dry cardboard is not my thing, Always have an instant read thermometer and take the fish off at 130-135 deg. Never open the fish up or try looking inside. Filet's work best, but not with the tail,(to thin) just buy the center.

One other cool trick is to cook the salmon skin side down. And use a griddle plate that's HOT on the top of the fish half way thru the cooking. Get is hot and just lay it on top of the salmon if you need grill marks. I can never taste the grill marks so I don't worry about them. Finish with a sour cream, mayo, cucumber, and dill mixture for the fish.

Regards, Doug
