Smoked Salmon Dip

This smoked salmon dip is very quick to make but makes an elegant spread or hors d’oeuvres. It’s great as a stuffed for mushroom caps, dolloped into the tips of endive, in cucumber cups, on eggs, inside crepes, as the filling for little biscuit sliders, or…well your imagination’s the limit 🙂

Grilled Salmon with Teriyaki Sauce

It’s summer, or nearly so, and the Friday of a long three-day weekend. For us, that means grilling, and since we’re currently eating low-carb, I put on my mad scientist hat to create a teriyaki sauce that tasted sweet without using sugar.

Enter stevia.

After playing around with quantities and plenty of taste tests, here’s the result…and it’s delicious.
