Michelle's Sun Dried Tomato Salmon

As the recipe says, this is best used on Salmon or Tuna... I also think it may work on Chicken, but you be the judge...

- ingredients -
10 to 20 large fresh garlic cloves, peeled
1 teaspoon salt (we prefer to use Garli Garni)
1/4 cup olive oil (optional, because we use the olive oil from the tomatoes.)
4 tbs. fresh parsley, finely chopped
2 tbs. Balsamic vinegar
1 1/2 tbs. sun dried tomatoes in olive oil (we use the jar)
3 - 4 lb. of fish

- directions -

Peel and chop garlic and pour salt (or Garli Garni) on top to mash it. Combine garlic with olive oil, parsley, Balsamic vinegar and sun dried tomatoes in a covered jar. Refrigerate overnight.
Before BBQing the fish, cut lengthwise slits in the fillets but not all the way through it. Spread half the mixture over the top and into the slits. Grill as normal, low heat and don't flip. Midway through the grilling, use the remainder of the mixture.
BBQing should be done with the lid down, when done the fish should lift off the skin leaving the skin on the grill. A good white wine and you¹re ready to go...

3/4 cup all purpose flour

3/4 cup cold water
1 egg beaten
1 lb. calamari
1/2 cup red bell pepper (seeded, quartered inch diced)

To prepare calamari: Remove and discard calamari eyes and beak. For easier handling, do not separate tentacles. Rinse and remove andy sand from body. Slice the body into thin rings. Do not slice tentacles. Bring to boil a pot of water. Add salt until salty (like the ocean). Drop calamari into boiling water and stir. When water starts to simmer again (about one minute) drain.

Sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Combine water and egg: whisk mixture into flour to form a smooth batter. Cover and let rest about two hours.
Combine calamari, red bell pepper, green onion and garlic; stir into batter coating thoroughly. Using tablespoon portions, deep fry the fritters in small batches, in 350' oil, easing the mixture into the oil and carefully shaking it from the spoon if necessary. When the fritters are golden and cooked through, about three minutes, drain and serve immediately.
