Steelhead gets a lil' barbecue glaze with some zippy togarashi pickles in this lights out summer grilling crowd pleaser. 


  • 12 oz. Steelhead or Salmon cut into chunks
  • Bourbon Barrel Foods Barbecue Sauce
  • 1 head bibb lettuce
  • olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Bourbon Barrel Foods Bourbon Smoked Togarashi 
  • 1 English cucumber or 3 Japanese cucumbers, thinly sliced. 
  • 1 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1 cup water
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon Kosher salt 


  1.  For the pickles, combine vinegar, water, sugar, togarashi and salt in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Remove from heat and let cool. Add cucumber slices and stir. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to 5 days. 
  2. Rub Steelhead with olive oil, season with a pinch of togarashi and salt. Over a high heat grill (skin side down if skin on) for 2-3 mins, flip and brush on barbecue sauce, cover and grill for another 2 minutes.   The steelhead should be just warmed in the middle, don't overcook!  Brush on a touch more barbecue sauce for a bright orange color. 
  3.  Place steelhead in the center of a lettuce leaf, top with pickles, a dusting of togarashi and serve with extra barbecue sauce and cold beer!

    Pro Tip: Make sure the bibb lettuce is nice and cold and fresh for a good crunch!
