A note about serious food allergies

BBQ sauce goes everywhere; on pork, steak, chicken… so why not seafood? That sweet tang, made even sweeter with a touch of honey, turns every protein into a delight, whether they grazed on grass or swam in the stream. BBQ honey sauce isn't the only sweet thing swimming around in this meal: meet its sides, sweet corn with garlic better and slightly spicy muffins. Sweeeetttt.

    Prepare the Muffins

    In a mixing bowl, combine muffin mix, bacon, jalapeño, and 1/4 cup water until a pancake-like batter forms. If too dry, add water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.

    Divide batter evenly into four cups of prepared muffin tin. Place muffin tin on one side of prepared baking sheet.

    Place corn on other side of baking sheet and top with 1 tsp. olive oil and a pinch of salt.

    Bake in hot oven until corn is tender and muffin tops are lightly browned and start to crack, 12-14 minutes.

    While muffins and corn bake, cook salmon.
