these are older pics, but i made this for my mother in law this past mother's day. i get this for $1.29 at the local fish market, or asian grocery store. the monger guy told me most folks that buy it use it for crab bait. my MIL and wife love salmon "bits"..ok, the head. i watched them pay $20 for a tiny grilled salmon head at a sushi joint once..and right then and there, i told them i would make it for them. $20??!!
i marinate the heads in soy sauce, minced ginger, green onions..and cheap Sake. i add a tiny bit of sugar to aide in carmelization. then i build a big fire with a cool pocket just in case things go hot too fast. add some apple wood chunks from my buddies orchard..and bammo!! my MIL loves me. hahah. it is a tad too rich for me. i made lamb kabobs, grilled chicken wings, and grilled shrimp for the less adventerous lunch guest. i have friends that would vapor lock at the table. "no food with eyes please"
here are the pics. this is our wild side
