Grilled Salmon with Blueberry and Hatch Green Chile Sauce

I found this very cool recipe on Shanna’s website https://www.pineappleandcoconut.com.
A perfect dish for summer, please to enjoy!

Grilled Salmon with Blueberry and Hatch Green Chile Sauce
Serves 6

Ingredients:

1 1/2 lbs Salmon Filet
2-4 Whole fresh Hatch Chile
1 cup low sugar Organic Blueberry jam
1 cup fresh blueberries
4 ounces of Hatch Chile
1-2 tbsp water (optional)
1 tsp each sea salt, black pepper, ancho chile powder, brown sugar

Directions:

Preheat your grill on hight, clean the grates and lightly spray with oil, such as grape seed, then lower to 450 deg F.  In a saucepan on the stove combine the blueberry jam, fresh blueberries and 4 ounces of Green Chile. Stir over medium heat until well combined at the fresh blueberries start to soften. Add 1-2 tbsp water if desired for a thinner sauce. Keep warm until ready to serve. Rinse and pat dry the salmon filet. Check for bones and remove any if found. Slice into 6 portions. In a small bowl mix together the sea salt, black pepper, ancho chile and brown sugar. Sprinkle over the filet’s. Place the whole chile on the preheated grill and grill lightly, 2-3 min until grill marks appear. Remove and let cool. Slice into ½” thick rings, you can rinse out the seeds if you want. The ribs and seeds will make the dish spicier.  Grill the salmon, skin side down for 8-10 min or until it flakes easily with a fork, and the fat turns white. Keep the thicker part of the filet on the hotter part of the grill so the fish cooks evenly.  Place the filet’s on plates, top with a few tablespoons of the blueberry sauce and a few of the grilled pepper rings. Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes:

Notes: If you want to keep it even lower sugar you can make the sauce out of 2 cups of fresh blueberries and cook until softened with 1-2 tablespoons of water. If you want to thicken the sauce you can use organic corn starch or arrowroot starch, about 1 tsp mixed with a little water and add it in. Also omit the brown sugar.

A Green Chile Crab Cakes with Horseradish Sauce Recipe!

A Green Chile Crab Cakes with Horseradish Sauce Recipe!

Recipe Author: MJ of MJ’s Kitchen
Recipe provided with permission from MJ’s Kitchen!

This recipe comes from the MJ’s Kitchen website. MJ has lived in New Mexico for over 40 years. She has a wonderful website full of recipes!

Makes 4 – 6 crab cakes, depending on size
Prep and Cook time: 45 minutes

Ingredients:

1 ½ cup crab meat, chunky bits
1 cup stale bread crumbs ran through blender until coarse
¼ cup minced onion
¼ cup minced bell pepper, any color
¼ cup roasted green chile, peeled and chopped
1 tsp. dry mustard
½ tsp. red chile powder
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
Dash of salt
1 small egg, beaten lightly
1 Tbsp. fresh parsley or cilantro, chopped
½ tsp. Worcestershire sauce
Canola oil (for frying)
Wedges of lemon or lime

Instructions:

Mix together all of the ingredients. (except for the canola oil and lemon/lime.) Divide the batter to make 4 – 6 crab cakes* and shape cakes, pressing firmly and squeezing out excess liquid. Set in the refrigerator while you make the sauce and heat up the oil. Make the sauce and refrigerate. (This step could be done way ahead of time.) Pour about 1/4″ of oil in a skillet and heat over medium heat. When the oil is hot (~325ºF), fry the crab cakes about 4 minutes to a nice brown color, then carefully flip and cook another 4 minutes or until brown. (I like the exterior of my cakes a little crispy so I go for a rich brown.) When done, remove from the oil and place on paper towels or a paper bag to drain.  Spread a little horseradish sauce on the plate and top with a crab cake. Squeeze juice from a wedge of lime over the crab cake. Enjoy!

Horseradish Sauce*

1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 ½ tsp. Dijon or creole mustard
Juice from ½ lemon or more to taste
1 heaping tsp. prepared horseradish

Whisk all ingredients together in a bowl and serve with the crab cakes.

A Grits and Green Chile Recipe!

A Grits and Green Chile Recipe!

This recipe comes from the MJ’s Kitchen website. MJ has lived in New Mexico for over 40 years. She has a wonderful website full of recipes!  MJ says, “Grits and Green Chile is the ultimate fusion of southern and New Mexico cuisine. It’s creamy, spicy, and cheesy, and a definite comfort food. It takes about 15 minutes to make and has only 5 ingredients, two of which are water and salt. You can’t make an easier or more comforting breakfast, lunch or dinner. With this dish, I have turned many people who disliked grits into grits lovers!”

Ingredients:

3 cups water
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 cup quick-cooking grits* (not instant!)
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese*
1/4 to 1/2 cup chopped green chile* (the amount depends on the heat of the chile and how much heat you want)
1 overeasy or sunnyside up egg per person (optional)

Instructions:

Bring the water with salt to a boil. SLOWLY whisk in the grits. Reduce heat to low and cover. Whisk every 1 minute or so to prevent lumping and sticking to the pot.  Once the grits have thickened, stir in the cheese and the Green Chile.  Cook for another 1 minute, stirring. Remove from heat and pour into bowls.  If desired, top your bowl of grits with a fried egg.
Increasing the recipe – As with polenta, if you want to increase or decrease the recipe just work with a ratio of 1/4 cup uncooked grits to 1 cup water.
