Salmon - AK style...Somebody else gotta try this

2 years ago I had the good fortune of fly fishing in Nondalton, AK. Best meal of the week was a stream side meal the guide prepared by gathering drift wood, building a fire, throwing a grate over it and cooking 4 fresh salmon fillets, each prepared 4 different ways.

The over the top, off the chain fillet that everybody wanted more of was prepared with a base of spicy mayo, diced jalapenos and then covered in Ruffles brand cheddar cheese n sour cream chips. It was off the charts good! Here's a pic of the guide preparing the fillets. The fillet on the right is the one completely covered in chips.

Fast forward 2 years later and I teed this up for the Ms and me this past weekend. I used Boar's Head spicy mayo smeared all over the fillet, then sprinkled pickled diced jalapenos on it followed by crushed Ruffles cheddar n sour cream chips. Threw it on the grill for bout 10 minutes and paired it with wild rice n cauliflower au gratin. Holy Smokes boys!!! Wife didn't want any spice on hers so I just marinaded her fillet in the usual soy sauce, honey, brown sugar, water concoction then covered hers in chips. But...come time to eat she wanted mine. No marinade needed on the one on the left.

You gotta try this and let us know how you like it.

Looks good. Let me know when you open Triple C restaurant up.
Ha! That's what my kids tell me...open a biscuit barn when I retire. It'd be work rather than fun if that were the case. Give that salmon recipe a try and let us know what you think. Don't be shy on the chipotle mayo and jalapenos.

Even better with Martins ;) Buddy is a guide up in AK and I have to send him Martins because they don’t have them!

They don’t have them down south as well! Made in southern PA, and a staple around these parts.
