Get out the plank for this fish

This dish is a healthy dish that is simple and delicious. It only takes 20 minutes to cook the fish, so you could create a salad to put the salmon on or cook some veggies on the grill sprinkled with your favorite Sauce Goddess spice rub to make a great meal!

Sweet Heat Salmon


  1. Soak the plank for 30 minutes in water.
  2. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  3. Place salmon on the plank and sprinkle with BBQ Sweet Heat. If you don’t have a plank, lightly oil a piece of foil or a baking dish and place salmon on that.
  4. Place the plank in the oven. Bake for 20 minutes or until fish is almost done. There will be some cooking after it is removed from the heat.
  5. Plate your fish and enjoy with some healthy veggies.

This recipe can be done in the oven or on the grill. If you don’t have a grilling plank use a pan or piece of foil.

If you are grilling the fish, the plank will smoke a bit and burn. That’s okay, it imparts a nice mild flavor to the salmon.

Bacon Wrapped Shrimp

This recipe is really great for parties. It’s a mild combination of sweet shrimp and smoked slightly salty bacon. The thin Sweet & Tangy marinade is a nice compliment.

Bacon Wrapped Shrimp


  1. Soak toothpicks in water while you are prepping.
  2. Partially cook bacon until no longer raw. It should still be flexible enough to be wrapped around the shrimp.
  3. Remove bacon from pan while warm.
  4. Cut bacon in half to create 2 wide, short strips.
  5. Wrap a strip of bacon around each shrimp and attach soaked toothpick to hold bacon in place.
  6. Preheat the grill on medium.
  7. Pour sauce into deep bowl that is wide enough to dunk the shrimp. I like to use a glass two cup measuring cup. Seems to be just the right size.
  8. Dunk each shrimp in sauce and place on the grill.
  9. Cook 5 minutes.
  10. Dunk again and flip to cook the other side.
  11. Repeat the process until the shrimp is cooked and the bacon and sauce are a nice caramelized color.

This recipe is also great with our award winning Sweet & Spicy sauce.

BBQ Shrimp Pizza with Shaved Brussel Sprouts

BBQ Shrimp Pizza with Shaved Brussels Sprouts - by customer Mark D

Pizza is easily made with Trader Joe's Herb Pizza Dough. In just 1 hour, I have amazed my friends with this delicious crispy thin pizza. If you have a Pizza Stone, in the oven or on the grill makes it easy and crisp. Don't forget, mascarpone cheese on the bottom after lightly oil brushed pizza gets it creamy; just ask Mozza! Apple Smoked Bacon and pan roasted shaved Brussels sprouts makes it yummy with the shrimp. Trader Joe's package makes two individual pizzas. Using a Pizza Peel is best for transition of pizzas.


  • 1 Herbed Pizza Dough Trader Joe's
  • 8 Large shrimp, shelled and deveined, diced in chunks
  • 1-2 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 6-8 medium Brussels sprouts, sliced thin
  • 2 strips of Apple Smoked Bacon, cooked and diced
  • 3 Tbsp mascarpone cheese
  • 6 oz-8 oz Quarto Cheese (Trader Joe's)
  • Olive oil to brush and cook
  • Ground corn meal
  • Pepper
  • Salt
  • Sauce Goddess Sweet Heat Spice

  1. For the dough: follow the dough instructions, about 1/2 hour resting from fridge before splitting into 2 pizzas.
  2. Meanwhile, cook garlic in 4 TBS olive oil over medium high heat for 30 seconds.
  3. Add shaved Brussels sprouts.
  4. Reduce heat to medium, and lightly caramelize, about 2-3 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat.
  6. Cook the bacon in another pan or on grill to crispy, but not too brown.
  7. Heat the oven or grill to 450 degrees.
  8. Roll out dough or double-fist shape your pizza.
  9. Transfer to a cornmeal crusted pizza peel.
  10. Note: I prefer to add ground corn meal (even using a rolling pin to grind slightly more) to the bottom of the work surface or pizza peel. I build my pizza on the pizza peel for easy transition.
  11. Brush lightly to edges.
  12. Add dollops of mascarpone and spread with the back of a spoon gently spreading to cover the entire pizza.
  13. Add the quarto cheese evenly.
  14. Add the Brussels sprouts, bacon and shrimp chunks.
  15. Lightly salt if preferred. Add ground pepper if preferred.
  16. And finally add 2-4 TBS of Sweet Heat for desired depth of flavor!
  17. Slide the pizza onto the stone.
  18. Cook pizza until crisp bubbling, brown edges, check the bottom by using a metal spatula.
  19. Remove with cleaned pizza peel. Rest 3-5 min before making slices.

Prep Time: 30 minutes - Cook Time: 45 minutes ; Yield: 4-6
