Dinner tonight

Okay, so I have my new toy and I'm looking for reasons to use it. So for dinner tonight, I picked up a couple of swordfish steaks. They are marinating for 1 hour in evoo, white vinegar, minced onion, oregano, basil, salt, pepper and thyme. Ran some squash down the mandoline and thats marinading in asian sesame oil. Throwing on the grill around 6:00. Can't wait!

Dang it I ain't go no exact recipe! Add a little..if you think it's too sweet, you added too much!!!!!!

Actually I use about a third or a half aj for basting, but only bout a quarter of less for table sauce.

I'm sorry, Capt'n...This is what I was refering to:

Imho, it has to have a sharp vinegar bite, followed by the heat of the pepper and the sweetness of the apple. I make mine very hot, and add more apple juice for other folks.

LOL!! Everyone has different tastes. I love fish (seafood in general) but I always have my swordfish blackened ~ That's just me. Other fish, Red fish is good blackened too but outside of those, no way!

Hey Nick- Do you guys actually ever fight any fires there or is it all just bartending and pork pulling?
LOL, hey were only volunteers! Maybe get 4 or 5 workers a year. We had 2 in the last week and a half. Lots of important stuff gets solved at our bar. When I left there this morning, I don't think there were anymore problems in the world!
