Salmon dinner a' la WSM - Page 2

post #21 of 29

Salmon looks good Johnny!  I usually have to catch mine at Costco too.  Last fall a coworker took me out and ended my lifetime dry spell on the water, and we caught 2 kings on the boat.  They were about 30#each.  He gave me his and I took them home and cleaned em up packed them and put them in the freezer for later, then found out last week that they unsealed or got holes but they were ALL frost bit through and through.  Complete loss.  icon_cry.gif

 

So I have to go back and get the store bought. (pout)

 

Yours makes me want to spend the money.  Good job!

 

Good to see you back in the saddle again my friend.

Thanks Mo. Yeah... I don't trust any of the fish we pull out of the Columbia and the Willamete around here. With the port of Portland being a super fund clean up site, and all the raw sewage that overflows into the Willamet the water here has all kind of nasty stuff in it. I remember a few years back they were finding two headed frogs, and fish with twisted deformed bodies. Does not make me want to eat anything swimming in those waters.

 

.... but when I make it over to Lincoln City on occasion, I will sometimes grab a fresh ocean caught fish and put it on ice till I get home.

Now if you can find the frogs with 6 legs, you'll be in business!

it is funny that EPA fines companies for small 50 gallon accidental discharges of pollution but Portland City dumps raw sewage by the ton and its ok and no fines for them.  I like the tidal cleansing we get here twice a day.

Yup... and now Portland has some of the highest water and sewage rates in the entire country because of the "Big Pipe" project to re-rout all the sewage and run off to a new plant! Grrrrr! hopmad.gif

I'm doing some smoking wood taste tests. I smoke a little salmon, tilapia, pork, chicken and beef in my mini-WSM with a single wood to see how it tastes. All meats are unseasoned except for a little oil to promote moistness. I just did cherry wood a couple days ago and the salmon and tilapia were both OMG good! I'm sure with the seasoning you used it was really great!

Yeah... I really liked the cherry on the salmon. I don't care for cherry on much else, but for fish it does really well.
