  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Wooden or bamboo skewers (soaked in water)


  • Marinate shrimp (salt, pepper and garlic) for 20 minutes to an hour.
  • With wadded paper towel, lightly coat grill with oil.
  • Stir chili-garlic sauce and honey together in a small bowl.
  • If using skewers, thread the shrimp onto them. Otherwise, preheat the grill to medium heat

Grilled Honey Mustard Salmon

  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup fresh dill (chopped right before serving)


  • Season salmon fillets with salt and pepper
  • Fully cover salmon fillets with mustard
  • Preheat grill, create an indirect cooking zone (higher flames to the sides of where you’ll be placing the salmon, low flames directly under the salmon.
  • Place salmon fillets over the ‘indirect’ heat, cooking 7-10 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer reads 150 degrees.
  • When ready to serve, slide a spatula between the fillet and the skin (which should stick to the grill) and plate.
  • Scrape the grayish fat under the fillet off.
  • Sprinkle fresh dill all over and serve.
