Does the very name make your mouth water??

This fabulous recipe comes from my little brother Jon.

Can you tell he was a college professor for years? He now owns a company called Aspire Ability.

Jon is the baby of 10 children. I was #6 so I was just the age to think of him as my own real life doll. I really wanted him to be a girl so I called him Rebecca when I was alone with him.

Jon is a CREATOR. In recent years he has started creating fabulous dishes, and here is one.

So let’s get started!

Mix the marinade and let that salmon sit in it for an hour or more.

Jon likes to smoke his, but it also works great on the grill.

Placing the salmon on foil will save you from losing it down the grill. Just poke holes in the foil.

Start with the skin side down and when you flip it the first time, remove the skin and marinade.

If you are using a grill, flip the salmon regularly basting each time.

If you are using a smoker, turn up the heat at the end and cook until the salmon has a nice, charred glaze.

Serve with rice and delicious mango salsa.

Enjoy every bite!
