Dagut Root Donuts

Dagut Root, harvested from our front yard

One of many adventures with Uncle Dave

Auntie Kina working her magic, ground and mixed root into batter.

This takes talent!

The masterpiece complete, aren't they fabulous?

Grilled Salmon

OK, I know it has been some time now since my last post, that does not mean I have not been cooking. I just haven't had time to post the meals. Now, here on Guam I have been cooking a lot of fish that is caught around Guam's waters. But there is a fish market here that has Salmon shipped in from Washington, and surprisingly it is very fresh. This grilled fillet has the perfect balance between salty and sweet.

You are going to want to prepare the marinade and fish at least 2hrs before you grill it up.

2lbs salmon
lemon pepper to taste (I like a lot, 1 tbsp)
1 tsp garlic power
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup veg oil or evoo will work too

Put all this in a gallon zip lock bag and mix it up. Add your fish (that you took all the bones out of) It's up to you if you want to keep the skin on, I like to keep it on. When you first put it on the grill put it skin side down, it lets the flavor from the skin into the meat. With medium heat the fish should be done in about 6 min, 3 min. per side. If you really want to make it more flavorful, smoke it with some alder wood chips.

Also with my fish this night I grilled some garlic bread, it turned out great!
