As some of you know I have been on a diet of awhile now,which I am very happy to say is going very well. I am now at a total of 25 pounds lost!!! So in keeping with my healthy and good for you meals,tonight was salmon burgers and asparagus with sweet chili sauce! I decided to make a raspberry jalapeno sauce for the burgers,one that did not have all the sugar and salt so i made my own. In the pot went my own farm rasied raspberries,a can of chilies in adobo,some splenda,white pepper,honey,onion powder,garlic powder,water. Let it simmer for 30 mins.and this is what it looked like...
My sister gave me some salmon burgers to try so this will be my first time using a premade salmon patty. Then I spread some on the burgers before i started smoking them...then again about halfway through the cooking time. Plus I got to use my new bottle/brush that the wife picked up for me!!
Threw them in the trusty mes at 250 with a row of cherry and one of peach in the amns.I lit every end of the dust because i really wanted alot of smoke flavor in a short amount of time. Here they are just before I pulled them out.
We used some wheat rounds that are much better for you than white bread,and some spinach. The wife steamed up some
asparagus then she tossed it with some sweet chili sauce and some healthy butter spray. And BAM dinner is ready...a healthy dinner I might add!!
And one more close-up!!
Dinner was a hit!!! The sauce was good,and real good smokey flavor.Another day down and on to the next! So far so good,I have not cheated nor do I feel the need yet! Plus I still get some smokey goodness while losing weight!!!
Thanks for looking..LES
