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.

Backyard Barbecuing

The sun is shining which means it’s prime grillin’ time outdoors with family and friends! It also means tubs of ketchup, mayo, mustard and artificially flavored BBQ sauces go flying off the shelves.

Hawaiian Chicken and Bacon Skewers

This recipe is a great version of traditional Hawaiian style skewers with an added tweak – bacon! Sauce Goddess Sweet & Tangy Mop Sauce brings together the pineapple and pepper flavors into a mouthwatering tangy treat. It’s versatile enough for most any kind of meat, so if you’re in the mood for steak or just want to double up on the pork mix them in or swap out for the chicken.

Hawaiian Chicken and Bacon Skewers

  • 8 skewers (if they are wood, soak for 30 minutes in water)
  • 8 slices of bacon
  • 2 lbs chicken, boneless skinless thighs are nice and moist
  • 3/4 cup Sauce Goddess Sweet & Tangy Marinade and Mop sauce
  • 1 sweet onion, cut into chunks then separated into slices
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 cup pineapple chunks

    Chicken Prep
  1. Cut chicken into 1-2 inch cubes.
  2. Place Sweet & Tangy sauce into a zip top bag and add chicken chunks.
  3. Remove most of the air and zip closed.
  4. Place in fridge overnight.
    Skewer Creation
  1. Start each skewer by first adding a pepper slice and then an onion slice.
  2. Add one end of a strip of bacon (one per skewer). Do "NOT" move the bacon down the skewer. You need to move it only far enough to get another ingredient on so it will be tightly woven.
  3. Add the chicken then move down slightly and add pineapple, onion and pepper.
  4. Gently stretch the bacon and run the skewer thru it a second time.
  5. Continue with chicken, onions, pineapple and pepper, weaving one strip of bacon every 2 " or so.
  6. Heat your grill to 300 at most.
  7. Place skewers on the grill and cook slowly to make sure the bacon and chicken are both cooked completely.
    Optional Added Tanginess
  1. Baste with fresh Sweet & Tangy Mop sauce as desired while the skewers are cooking.

Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos

This is much more fun (and sinful) than low cal ranch dipping sauce with raw peppers. It’s perfect for meals on the grill or tantalizing appetizer. It takes a bit more time but so worth it!


  • 8 whole jalapeno peppers (or mild mini bells)
  • 8 strips uncooked bacon, thin
  • ¼ cup Sauce Goddess Sticky Sweet or Sweet & Spicy sauce
  • 8 x ½ inch pieces of Monterey Jack or other good melting cheese
  • 16 toothpicks

  1. Soak the toothpicks in water so they won’t burn on the grill.
    Prepare Peppers
  1. Half cut lid of pepper by carefully slicing across halfway thru the pepper at the top just below the stem.
  2. Cut a side slit by carefully slicing down the length of the pepper 2/3 of the way down.
  3. "Manage the Heat:" Some of the seeds and ribs have to be removed to make room for the cheese but not all of them. If you want it good 'n spicy you can leave some in. If you use the milder mini peppers no seeds need to be removed.
  4. To remove seeds and rib open the pepper gently by pressing the end toward the stem. Using a small paring knife carefully cut the ribs where they meet the side of the pepper. Use the knife and pull at them. They should come out with slight resistance.
    Put It All Together
  1. Now that the pepper has some space, place one slice of cheese inside.
  2. Wrap uncooked bacon around pepper taking care to place the largest end of the bacon over the top slit and roll the bacon around to the tip then back to the top.
  3. Use 2 toothpicks to seal the pepper closed and hold the cheese inside while it melts by pushing them completely through in an X configuration.
  4. Grill over low/medium heat until the bacon is cooked.
  5. Baste with Sauce Goddess BBQ sauce of choice and continue cooking for 5 minutes.
  6. Put a little extra BBQ sauce in a bowl if you want some dipping sauce.
