Cookbook author Tiffany Haugen has a passion for preparing Pacific Northwest seafood, and will be contributing some of her delicious recipes for my blog. Each of her recipes will be related to the “catch” of the week.

She and her husband Scott Haugen live in western Oregon, and many know Scott for his writing expertise on fishing and hunting.

Their recipes will be posted usually on Wednesdays now through October along with other local chefs like Tom Douglas who recently was named the nation’s Outstanding Restaurateur at the James Beard Award ceremony, tackle shop owners and fish market owners.

If you have delicious recipes you’d like to reel-in my way, please let me know, and I will post them and will even test it out with my family and friends at the dinner table.

Growing up on a strawberry farm, Tiffany had about every possible strawberry dish imaginable. This recipe makes a beautiful presentation, offering a sweet, tangy flavor.

Strawberry BBQ Glazed Salmon

Ingredients

4-6 salmon or steelhead steaks

1/2 cup sliced strawberries (may use fresh or frozen)

1/4 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce

1 tablespoon olive or canola oil

1 tablespoon water

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon white pepper

1/4 cup butter

1 Walla Walla onion, thinly sliced

3-4 sprigs fresh cilantro

Directions

In a blender or food processor, blend strawberries, oil, water, salt and pepper until smooth. Melt butter in a medium sauce pan, add onions and sauté until translucent. The longer the onions are sautéed, the sweeter they will become. It is nice to have a very sweet onion to accompany the strawberry glaze. Place steaks on a well greased broiler pan. Brush steaks with strawberry glaze. Broil for 2 minutes under a preheated broiler 4″ from the heat. Glaze again, broil 2 more minutes and turn steaks over. Repeat the glazing on the other side. Serve on the bed of caramelized onions. Garnish with fresh cilantro and strawberries if desired.
