We had a big family reunion on Mother’s Day, and my sister and brother-in-law grilled a huge salmon for us. Salmon is one of our mother’s favorite foods, and since it was her day, we wanted everything to be exactly to her liking.
I brought homemade bread, a pan of persimmon pudding, and a jar of Pineapple Habanero pepper jelly I had intended to use it on the cream cheese, as a dip, but my brother-in-law’s face lit up like a lighthouse when he saw it, and he pretty much grabbed it out of my hand and used it as a glaze for the salmon.
It was absolutely delicious. Mike just brushed the Pineapple Habanero pepper jelly all over the slab of salmon and closed the grill’s lid. It smelled so good, the neighbors came out onto their porch and called out to us that they envied us our cookout menu!
More generous people than us might have invited them over to share, but we were all mesmerized by that aroma and weren’t about to share.
There were, as usual with a Texas Pepper Jelly product, no leftovers whatsoever. That salmon was inhaled before it was even cool enough to eat safely.
I highly recommend Pineapple Habanero pepper jelly for any purpose – on Sunday, we used it as a marinade-glaze for a slab of salmon. None of us will ever cook salmon without it again.
