Potato Salad

  • 5 small idaho potatoes peeled & cubed
  • 2 large hard boiled eggs peeled & chopped
  • 1 small white onion chopped
  • salt & black pepper to taste
  • 3 tbsp sweet relish
  • 3 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp spicy brown mustard or dijon
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika

Spicy BBQ Salmon

  • 4 salmon fillets fresh or frozen
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp Slap Ya Mama Seasoning or seasoning blend of choice
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup original bbq sauce brand of choice
  • 1 tbsp sriracha sauce
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar

Sautéed Kale


  • To prepare the potato salad, peel and cube the potatoes, then boil for about fifteen minutes until tender. You can boil the eggs in the same pot as the potatoes. Chop the onion while you wait for the potatoes and eggs to cook.
  • Pour the potatoes into a colander, rinse with cold water and allow to drain. Chop the eggs.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add the potatoes, boiled eggs, onions, sweet relish, mayo and mustard. Season to taste with salt & black pepper. Mix thoroughly.
  • Flatten out the top, garnish with smoked paprika, cover and chill until serving time.
  • Wash and chop the kale. You can buy the pre-chopped bagged variety to make things easier. Make sure you wash and drain still.
  • Heat the olive oil in a wok or saute pan, then add the kale. Saute until tender. Add the apple cider vinegar and hot sauce, and season to taste with smoked paprika, salt & pepper. Turn off the heat.
  • Wash the salmon with lemon juice and water, and pat dry. Season with the Slap Ya Mama (or seasoning of choice). Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, mix the bbq sauce with the brown sugar and sriracha sauce. Set aside.
  • Heat a cast iron skillet or non stick pan, and add the olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the salmon fillets. Cook for a minute on each side. Glaze with the spicy bbq sauce, then cook further for 1-2 minutes on each side.
  • Plate the salmon, kale & potato salad. Enjoy.
