When I visited the Bjorks in 1990 Larry made his special salmon concoction, as follows. It requires a good California white or rosé and maybe a cold pasta salad.
- 4-6 lbs. fresh salmon, skinned and boned
- 3 large tomatoes
- 2 red onions
- 1 stick butter
- ground black pepper
- lots of dill
- aluminum foil and an outdoor barbecue grill
Make a "boat" out of the aluminum foil, large enough for the salmon steak(s). Slice the tomato, onion and butter onto the salmon and sprinkle with black pepper, then cover with a layer of dill.
Wrap the whole thing in a double layer of foil. Put it in a barbecue over white coals for about half an hour, flipping the whole package once, after about 20 minutes.
Break open and serve. Serves four.
