Summer BBQs and Perfect Sunsets

Barbecues are a right of passage into the summer season. I’ve been taking full advantage of the gorgeous weather and going on a full BBQ binge. There is something about that smokey aroma, charcoaled-flavored food, fire pits and ice-cold beer that has me blissfully dreaming of more of these perfect summer nights. As part of my “learning to be more domestic” education, I had one of my favorite grill masters show me how to make the perfect salmon dish on the barbecue. This is a super easy recipe that even I can execute so it is pretty idiot-proof.


  • Alaskan Sockeye Salmon
  • Brown Sugar
  • Low-sodium soy sauce
  • Pepper
  • Garlic Salt

How to:

  • Poor Tommy had to fillet the massive fish. However, if you are preparing this dish, most grocery stores (cough cough, go to Fred Meyer, cough cough) will fillet it for you.
  • Cut the salmon into pieces of 2 x 4 and season with pepper and garlic salt.
  • Then dash about 4-5 drops of low sodium soy sauce on each piece of fish.
  • Take a finger full of brown sugar and sprinkle over each fillet. Pack down the sugar with your hand.
  • Grill each piece of fish for about 7-10 minutes. Be sure to flip sides half way through.
  • Pair this entrée with a fresh summer salad or some grilled veggies and you’ve got yourself a perfect summer meal.

oh, and what’s a summer BBQ without beautiful florals and best friends…

And the evening ended with a picturesque sunset.
