Smoked Kokanee Fillets with 'Dirty' Potato Salad

Tonight we were blessed with some Kokanee fillets from a friend who spent the weekend fishing in a tournament.  Lucky us!

It didn't take long for Brownie to fire up the charcoal!  Keep in mind, these are smoked on the BBQ, not grilled. The fish just wouldn't have paired with the 'dirty' potato salad if it hadn't been smoked.

So here it is for approximately 2 servings:

  • 4 cups chopped potatoes (as you wish)
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 3 sprigs fresh Thyme
  • 1 pad salted butter 
  • 1 cup Tzatziki (our recipe here)
  • Chopped green onion
  • 4 - 6 Smoked Kokanee Fillets
  • 3 tablespoons raw honey
  • 2 Tablespoons whole grain mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon horseradish mustard
  • Toss chopped potatoes with olive oil, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper to taste
  • Place potatoes in tin foil - before sealing, put pad of butter on top of potatoes
  • Place on the grill over medium/high heat or in the oven at 400 until fork tender
  • Put honey in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave just enough to warm it
  • Mix mustards with honey and whisk with a fork until a sauce forms
  • Toss cooked potatoes with Tzatziki until coated
  • Put 1/2 of potatoes on each plate
  • Place fillets over potato salad
  • Sprinkle with chopped green onion
  • Drizzle desired amount of honey/mustard sauce over your creation
Enjoy!   The spice rub combines nicely with the honey/mustard mixture to give you that tangy Barbecue taste. A sophisticated spin on BBQ and potato salad!

Now go fishing so you can whip this up!
