Zucchini Salmon AppetizerThis is a quick, delicious, summer appetizer that I came up with. We’re always looking for new uses for zucchini. I will usually make this from the first zucchini off the vine and it celebrates the beginning of the summer bounty.

Quantities are approximate and of course it all depends on the size of your zucchini and how much salmon you have. Seasonings are of course to taste.

Smoked salmon is a staple of our diet and is the primary food that I make in my smoker. This is a quick recipe for a delicious spread that can be used on crackers or thinly sliced french bread or probably even as a vegetable dip. I used smoked chunk salmon in this recipe as opposed to the thinly sliced Lox that you would put on a bagel, but that would probably work, too. I just haven’t tried it.

Jared got this one from his friend Denise McCarthy. It is wonderful not only on Salmon, but on chicken and other meats as well.

When I got my first smoker, probably in the late 1990’s, I went over to see my backyard neighbor, Dudley Welch who had been smoking fish for quite a while. Dudley had a marinade recipe that he swore by, from his son-in-law, Dan Janssen. Dan is a trained Chef and now owner of a Barbecue restaurant in Kansas City, so I figured the recipe must be good. It is.  I get lots of requests for my smoked salmon even from people who don’t like salmon.

I came up with this one a few summers ago when we started cooking salmon on the grill. Natalie likes spicy, and this recipe can be as spicy as you like depending on the amount of jalapenos that you add. It is almost as good prepared in the oven. This works well for a large group and we have done that a couple of times.
