Having lived on an isolated Alaskan island for the better part of a decade, where fishing is at the heart and soul of the community, my family and I have eaten boatloads of salmon over the years! Even though we love fishing for salmon, enjoy cooking and eating it, and it’s delicious and super nutritious, I must admit, it gets a little mundane when you eat it week after week. In order to spice things up and add some variety to our weekly salmon eating routine, we have accumulated dozens upon dozens of recipes…many of which I’ll be sharing in the months ahead here at Wild Revelation Outdoors as well as on my YouTube Channel, so if you haven’t done so already, subscribe to the channel and sign up for our monthly newsletter, which you can do at the bottom of the website homepage.
For this first recipe, I’d like to share a fast, easy, and wonderful way to prepare any kind of salmon. It only requires two basic ingredients: your favorite barbeque sauce and red raspberry jelly. Let’s get started! (To watch the video version of this recipe, click here.)
Red Raspberry Barbeque Salmon
Serving size: 3 to 4 people
- Barbeque sauce
- Red raspberry jelly
- One medium to large Alaskan salmon fillet
- (Optional smoking wood chips of your choice)
Step #1 Go Catch some Alaskan Salmon! Watch my do-it-yourself Alaska fishing adventure video to learn how, or go get some Alaskan salmon from the store.
Step #2 Mix equal parts of your favorite barbeque sauce and red raspberry jelly.
Step #3 Brush heavily on salmon fillet and let marinate several hours or overnight.
Step #4 Either bake or grill the fillet at medium-high heat (375 – 400 degrees) until flakey…generally 15 minutes, or longer for thicker fillets. If grilling with indirect heat it will take about 5 to 10 minutes longer. I prefer to grill on charcoal with either hickory, apple, or alder chips for a fantastic smoked flavor!
Step #5 Brush on more sauce before taking off the grill or out of the oven and keep a little extra for dipping if so desired.
Step #6 Let cool, serve and enjoy!
