Salmon frames

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

I picked up some salmon frames from the super market yesterday

( I always look for them on the weekend as I figure the head filleter is away and the apprentices do the work on the weekends so the frames have more meat on them)

They were selling for $ 1:99 a Kilo so I grabbed a few for my lunch, and after salt and sugar cure overnite cooked them up on the barbeque at work. I had a few too many left over that I didnt cook and decided to cold smoke them when I got home.

here they are with a little cheese ........ always trying to maximise the use of smoke!

Just wondering if anybody else eats the frames, they are a bit fiddly thats why I chunk them up, and you tend to spit out a few bones but they are worth it!

When they fillet the fish you are left with the boney bit. back bone and ribs with a thin layer (depending on the skill of the boner or fish filleter) of flesh.

Sometime ya strike it lucky and theres plenty on there, me being such a tight wad likes the idea of paying very little for what is otherwise a premium product......... salmon fillet runs at $20 to $27 a kilo here

And at the top of the screen you can see my latest mod to the brinkman, a rack to hold 3 stainless rods for hanging sausage links from, there are two rods sitting on it in the photo

You learn something new everyday on here. Salmon frames? You would think they would just throw them away.

Hmm, thats very interesting.  We use the 'frames' as you call them, for halibut and burbot bait, as well as for bear bait.  Interesting concept.  When I fillet my slaom, theres not a whole lotta meat left, have enve used to make a glorious fish stock with them and the bellies.

People use them here for making burley as well but I find them tasty treats and when you dish them up cut into 2 " strips as an appetiser they disappear real fast!

LOL, well if you're speaking 'personally', I have the beer and you shall become welcome in my back 40 any time sir--as for the 4 legged animal that I feast upon, donuts, fry grease and salmos carcasses have them within range --
