Some people may just call it Smoked Whitefish and Lox or Salmon. Here at BBQ RESCUES, we consider it Kosher BBQ.

Where can you find the Kosher BBQ in Los Angeles? If anyone has any favorites, feel to add them to our Comments below. On June 10, 2018, I was honored to be invited to the 26th Annual Breakfast Meeting at Congregation Bais Naftoli in Los Angeles. Along with Congregation President, the event was attended by high ranking city, county and federal officials. Check below for an online printable version of the Kosher Recipe handouts prepared by the BBQ RESCUES! Foundation. Feel free to reprint and share alike.

Was a true pleasure to meet Andrew Friedman, President of Congregation Bais Naftoli in Los Angeles.

For the Breakfast, they served delicious Scrambled Eggs, Lox Salmon, Smoked Whitefish, Banana Blintzes, as well as was an abundances of Salad, Bagels, Cream Cheese and Fresh Fruits (& Veggies). My favorite was chomping on the Blueberries that were refreshing and in season, among other dishes.

After the Breakfast, I attended to a meeting at the West Los Angeles Farmer’s Market. Upon leaving, I couldn’t resist the unmistakable aroma of smoking BBQ.  Venturing a bit further down Santa Monica Bl., was surprised to stumble upon my first ever Kosher Street BBQ at Santa Monica Kosher Market. A Coincidence? After having just prepared flyers on the subject? Who knows… Will say I was impressed to not have to request Fresh Veggies from the Grill. They already had me covered.

TIPS: How to incorporate BBQ and more Nutrition for your Home Kosher Dishes:

Matzo ball Soup– Try wood smoking Chicken for the Broth. Grill the Carrots, Celery and even the Matzo Balls before adding with Herbs to broth.
Kosher Vegan Soup Broth and Gluten Free Matzo Balls are available online and at selected Kosher Grocery Stores.
Smoked Salmon– Home Smoked Salmon contains up to 80% less sodium than most store bought cured salmon.
Smoked Brisket– Rather than the oven, try cooking your Brisket on the Grill to add nice smoky flavor.
Pastrami- Yes pastrami! Try grilling or smoking it at home to cut down on the heavily salty and sugared brines used in store brands and certain Deli’s.
Smoked Whitefish- Is much easier to smoke at home than you may think.

On the downside, smoked salmon delivers a hefty dose of sodium. Three ounces of smoked salmon, for example, contains 666 milligrams of sodium, more than one third of a day’s worth. The same serving size of cooked fresh salmon has 50 milligrams.- The Globe and Mail
