Smoked Salmon

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

My neighbor got 30# of salmon from a vendor for "Free", so we smoked some up.

 

I used Bearcarver's Smoked Salmon Recipe with a couple changes

Here's the link:

http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/91264/final-smoked-salmon-with-recipe-instructions-and-qview

 

Substituted Yoshida's Sauce for the Soy Sauce

Reduced Salt to 1/4 Cup

 

Skinned and cut up the fillets into smaller pieces.

Into the brine for 6 hours.

Out of the brine, and rinsed. 

Towel dry and onto racks overnight to form the pellicle.

Into the smoker for about 5 hours total, with Apple Pellets in my AMNPS.

Internal 150°

 

Fresh out of the smoker, the Salmon was fantastic.  It get's better after a day in the fridge.

The flavor is awesome!!  Less salt and a little sweet, because of the Yoshida's Sauce and the reduction of Salt.

 

Thanks Bear for a GREAT Step-By-Step!

Ya know, the only way you could make Smoked Salmon using Bearcarver's recipe and your AMNPS better...

 

...is when the Salmon is free!

 

Looks fantastic!

Great job on them!  They look AWESOME!!  Went to Port Washington, WI this weekend and brough back 8 kings/cohos.  I have a recipe that the family has used for years, but I'm definitely going to use Bearcarver's Step-By-Step for some of them!

Man I wanna try that but Salmon is a little pricey and I'm scared I'd ruin it.

Sams Club and Costco have some pretty good prices on frozen salmon

I'll definitely do it again!

 

Nothing to be scared of, just follow Bear's Step-By-Step and you'll be OK!

I buy all of my salmon from Sam's club and its great. I buy the fresh stuff though. It can get kind of spendy if you do a bunch but its worth it.
