Traeger Grill recipes for you to try!
Ever since getting a Traeger Grill, I have become obsessed with smoking food and seeing just what is possible.
From seafood to pork to vegetables and even Traeger pasta sauce — I have discovered that the Traeger Grill is one of the best ways to prepare food. No, this is not a sponsored post, I’m just obsessed.
Here are 5 recipes for the Traeger Grill that illustrate just how versatile and amazing it is. From smoked trout and salmon to a spicy ‘nduja pasta sauce, I think you will find something you like.
Obviously these can be adapted to whichever smoker you may happen to own as well!
This is how you properly brine and smoke a whole trout on the Traeger Grill. This method works for fillets as well, but you have to adjust the time spent on the smoker. This smoked trout recipe takes a bit of time to come together, but the majority of that is hands-off. The results are a delicious salty, smoky fish that is better than anything you can get from the store.
This is how you smoke salmon on the Traeger Grill: Start with an earthy and citrusy brine of beetroot and blood orange, and then glaze with pomegranate and maple syrup hourly when on the grill as your salmon smokes to perfection.
If you love caramelized onions — try making smoked caramelized onions on the Traeger Grill or whichever smoker you have. The wood will add a smoky layer to the intense sweetness of the caramelized onions that is perfectly complementary and delicious.
My Best Pasta Sauce Recipe: ‘Nduja Sausage With Smoked Caramelized Onions, Tomatoes & Parmigiano-Reggiano (Traeger Grill Or Stovetop)
This is my best original pasta sauce recipe: ‘nduja sausage with smoked caramelized onions, tomatoes, Parmigiano-Reggiano, and garlic. This entire recipe can be done either on your Traeger Grill (or whatever smoker you may have) or on your stovetop. Both results are ridiculously delicious and complex in rich umami flavour.
If you love roasted tomatoes, you will adore smoked tomatoes on the Traeger Grill. The end result is a delicious snack or a versatile, savoury-sweet-smoky base for countless other recipes.
