    Spicy Yakitori Alder smoked Salmon

    I love the taste of this Spicy Yakitori Sauce that can be found at Whole Foods in my area. It is low in sodium, has a nice kick to it, with a sweet taste to it. It goes great with a lot of foods.

    1st time Keta Salmon

    My local store has Keta Salmon on sale, for $2.99 lb. I've always wanted to try Keta Salmon, as I've never had it this kind of Salmon before. Today was the day. I did not know how to cook this thing, so, I did my best, and tried to make a few slices out of it. I had trouble getting a good slice...
