Just a few of the sauces and glazes from Jack Daniels

It’s barbecue season and with the British weather being the best it’s been for years, it’d be rude not to get the grill out! With that it mind why not add a deeper dimension to your cooking this year with some great sauces and glazes from Jack Daniels, yes Jack Daniels!

All the raw ingredients I need for my healthy summer dish

For this sponsored post I want to share a great summer dish, just as good on the barbecue as on the hob. For my dish I used the Tennessee honey glaze, but there are many to choose from such as the full flavour smokey barbecue sauce, to the extra hot Habernero sauce, so why not give them a look when you shop next. At around £1.50 a bottle it’s a little money for a lot of flavour.

Fresh summer vegetables, ready to be prepped and steamed

I’ve created a healthy summer salmon dish using fine Scottish salmon steaks and fresh vegetables including baby carrots, tender stem broccoli, mange tout, baby corn and orange pepper. I also did some minted new potatoes and some toasted sour dough bread, socking up the cooking juices from the griddle.

Jack Daniels have a number of great sauces to choose from at £1.50 a bottle

The first thing to do is to marinade the salmon in the sauce. Drizzle it over, rub it in and then pop it in the fridge for up to two hours, or over night if you wish.

Marinating my salmon in the Tennessee honey glaze

While the delicious sauce does its thing prep your vegetables. All I did was chop the pepper into thin strips and top and tail the carrots. For the potatoes I got a pan of water on and chopped a handful of mint.

With the potatoes on, boiling in their minted water I added the carrots to the steamer. They take a little longer than the other veg and ten minutes later I added the other veg to the top of the steamer.

The salmon has soaked up all the amazing flavour from the Tennessee honey glaze

With all the vegetables now cooking it was time to retrieve the salmon from the fridge and wack it on a hot griddle. While I’m doing this indoors, you can just as easily cook the salmon on your barbecue. I put the salmon skin side down to make sure that it got really crispy and kept and eye on it as it cooked. As salmon cooks it changes to a lighter colour and you can easily see when it’s time to turn it over to cook the other side.

The salmon takes about 3-4 minutes on each side

With the salmon and vegetables now cooked it was time to plate up. After I did that I sliced a couple of pieces of sour dough bread and pressed these onto the griddle to soak up the cooking juices and any remaining Tennessee honey glaze that remained on it. As soon as the bread was lightly toasted I tucked in!

The taste test. The honey glaze really did add a great flavour to my salmon

The Jack Daniels Tennessee honey glaze really did add something special to this dish and I’m really looking forward to trying more recipes with my sauces.

        I work for a UK based company, have a trip scheduled for September, I’ll look to pick some up . I checked JD’s US website after reading your article and didn’t see them available here. Would make a nice one to pickup whilst I’m over. Keep up the great content Craig, “That Dapper Chap” is a regular read for me, always something interesting. Regards.
