Here’s a delicious barbecue sauce that doesn’t come loaded with sugar.

Keep a jar in your fridge and you'll be all set for your next backyard barbecue.

  • 1/2 onion, chopped fine
  • 1 Tbs. butter
  • 6 cloves garlic, chopped fine
  • 1 6 oz. can tomato paste
  • 1.5 cups stock (beef or pork will work)
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbs. dijon mustard
  • 2 Tbs. chili powder
  • 2 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 tbs. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. sea salt

Melt the butter on low heat. Add the onions and cook slowly to caramelize them and release some of the sweetness. Once they’re caramelized, add the rest of the ingredients. Cook on low for at least 30 minutes.

Let the sauce cool a little, then puree it in a food processor or blender to make it smooth.

Either salmon filets or patties will work for this easy, omega-3-packed meal. I use Trader Joe’s frozen wild salmon patties, they’re easy and cook well in the microwave at work.

Avocado and a garlic-dill sauce pair nicely with salmon.

  • 4 salmon filets or patties
  • 2 avocados, halved, pitted, peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • 2 tsp. dill

Prepare the salmon in the oven, on the grill, in the microwave, whatever works for you. Top with half of a sliced avocado. Mix the sour cream, garlic and dill, serve on top of the salmon and avocado or on the side as a dip.

Round out the meal with a salad and some plain yogurt and berries for dessert.
