With the new year just around the corner, Dave Zier, owner of Zier's Prime Meats in Wilmette, one of the leading meat markets in the country noted by Bon Appetit, right here as the best kept secret in Chicagoland will showcase unique New Years entertaining ideas! Zier has been in the meat business for over 30 years and is truly an expert in the industry.

ZIER'S SMOKED SALMON SPREAD

For best results use smoked salmon from Zier's Prime Meats, it's hot-smoked and fully cooked. *Consumer Note-Do not use lox, wrong texture and not cooked, it must be fully cooked for this recipe to work.

2 lbs hot smoked fully cooked salmon,

1 quart of Hellman's mayonnaise(if you want a less creamy texture use less mayo)

1/4 cup freshly diced onions,

1 teaspoon dried dill weed

Crumble smoked salmon in a large non-reactive bowl, discard the skin, add onions and mayo sprinkle dill over the mixture and knead all ingredients together.

Place in serving dishes and sprinkle with additional dill to garnish. spread on crackers or cocktail rye bread slices for an appetizer you will be talking about all night long and into the new year!

RACK OF LAMB

Place rack bone side down, in a preheated 425 oven, coated with your favorite spices,

Zier recommends a simple sea salt, course ground pepper, and either fresh or diced garlic in water or oil.

Roast for 25 minutes for medium rare. Take out of oven let rest for 5 or 6 minutes, carve and plate immediately.

EASY LIGHT CITRUS MARINADE Or use a combination of lime juice and tequilla--on the meat 45 min is the max time to marinate. why? so tender it will lose all texture after about 2 hours. Zier's Prime Meats recommends using this on your boneless breasts also, but not more than a few hours as it may get a little too salty look for this recipe online: the juice of 2 limes

1/2 cup salt
2 oz tequilla
3 C water
1 T sugar
* optional two crushed garlic cloves
6 bnls skinless breast halves/ or for 3 pork tenderloins cut recipe in 1/2

Pour water into large mixing bowl(steel or plastic) add in this order: salt, tequilla , lime(sound familiar?)and sugar. Mix well. Grill breasts for 7 to 8min per side on medium heat. pork tenderloins for 10 to 15 minutes turning 2 to 3 times. Never baste the chicken with this or any other marinade and discard it after use to prevent cross contamination of salmonella. Do not use the same platter or pan that had raw food of any kind on it.

QUICK SWEET AND HOT BBQ GLAZE

1/4 cup pineapple juice (variation use 1/4 cup thawed orange juice concentrate)
1/2 t cumin
1/2 t chili powder(variation 1/4 t cayenne pepper and 1/4 t chipotle pepper powder or flakes)

Combine dry ingredients and mix with pineapple or orange.juice concentrate. refridgerate until needed
