This quick and very dirty recipe for black onion relish was quite delicious on grilled salmon, but with every bite I became more and more agitated, thinking about how utterly perfect this would have been on a grilled hot dog.

Instructions Checklist
  • Build a campfire or prepare a charcoal grill and allow the fire to burn until it has accumulated a bed of coals.

  • Nestle onions into the hot goals and pile coals up on the sides and on top. Roast until blackened and tender, about 15 minutes. Turn onions, rebury them, and cook until the onions begin to leak juice, another 10 to 15 minutes. A bamboo skewer inserted into the center should easily slide in. Place onions in a bowl, cover and allow to cool.

  • Place red pepper on the coals; cook, turning often, until charred, about 10 minutes.

  • Peel the blackened skin off the onions and scrape the charred black bits off the red pepper. Finely chop onions and red pepper. Combine in a bowl with parsley, and season with salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper to taste.

  • Toss sherry vinegar and olive oil in with relish, cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

I made this and put it over baked potatoes cooked in coals also and it was delicious. It's much more fun watching your food cook on the campfire instead of over the boring stove. It serves as a meal for us. I made this the same as presented with no modifications. Read More

I really wanted (and expected to) like this one but we really didn't care for it at all. Read More

Made a double batch and then divided it into 3rds and used a different vinegar in each one. I used Apple Cider, Rice wine, and Balsamic vinegars. I also make smoked salt so I used smoked salt and smoked pepper to season them. Next time I make a batch I am going to add a little lime juice to one of them. We plan on using it as a condiment for brauts, hot dogs and steak sammiches. Although I saw another reviewer put it on baked taters and I may give that a whirl. Read More
