THIS WEEK: Cedar Plank Salmon with a Chorizo Topping, from Bonefish Grill (various locations).

Partly because so many vacationers are drawn the shore, summertime is prime time for seafood eating.

In fact, many people find themselves eating seafood only when they dine out, because they find it a bit intimidating to buy and prepare fish at home.

To help break this barrier, we’ve enlisted chef Tim Curci, a founder of the popular Bonefish Grill chain of restaurants. Here’s his recipe for Cedar Plank Salmon with a Chorizo Topping

About the chef:

Tim Curci and Chris Parker founded Bonefish Grill in St. Petersburg, Fla., in 1999. It has since expanded to include many locations in the East, Midwest and Northwest. Curci is a graduate of the famed Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, N.Y., and has more than 20 years of culinary experience.

Prior to the founding of Bonefish Grill, Curci served as senior vice president of operations for Hops Restaurant Bar & Brewery. Under his guidance, and as one of the original partners in 1989, he was responsible for Hops’ menu and concept development as well as overall operational systems of over 60 restaurants in 10 states.

Curci and his wife, Jen, live in Clearwater, Fla., with their four children.
