David Wei won our barbecue sauce recipe competition in 1982, and we're still here for it.
In our 1982 feature, “Top Sauces: The Best Eight BBQ Sauces in the West,” we searched high and low for the awesomest sauces. And while some entries were wholly bizarre (including one recipe that called for a pound of honey and 12 ounces of raspberry jam and another that used 3030!cups of ketchup), the greatest concoctions stood the test of time. Here was our number one pick, a sweet sauce for salmon by David Wei. We’re grateful that the recipe aged a bit better than ’80s eyewear (but, let’s face it, Wei pulls it off).
cup Miracle Whip salad dressing, or other variety
cup melted butter1 heaping tbsp liquid honey1 tbsp white vinegarSalt and pepper to taste½ tsp chopped dillSqueeze of fresh lemon juice
Mix ingredients until smooth. Brush sauce on both sides of salmon fillet or steak, and grill one side about six inches from the coals until sauce browns. Turn fish over. Coat top with a little more sauce, and cook fish until sauce on top glazes over. Serve more sauce alongside at the table.
