Smoked salmon chunks

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Well after seeing all the recent salmon threads recently I had to make some more too  smile.gif

 

 

I cut up a couple pounds while I was waiting to get a butt out of the smoker & put in some ribs.

 

 

 

Here are the dry ingredients that will turn into a brine.

 

 

 

Salmon added.

 

 

 

& this is the brine.  The salmon stayed in it for 8 hours & got stirred 4 times.

 

 

 

After the 8 hours I rinsed them off

 

 

 

 

& put them in front of a fan to get a good, quick pellicle.

 

They are currently doing a 4 hour stint in the smoker with alder.

 

 

Updates to follow...

I can give you measurements if you need them. It is mostly salt, sugar, & peppers.

What species Salmon did you smoke?   Looks pretty light in color.   What was the ratio between Salt and Sugar?

I wish I could tell you  th_dunno-1[1].gif  A friend of mine went on a guided salmon fishing trip up in New York/Canada & gave me some when he came back...

Here is the recipe I used for anyone interested...

 

For each lb of salmon

 

1/2 cup salt

1 1/2 cups brown sugar

2 g black pepper

.5 g cayenne pepper

 

I also added some granulated garlic when I mixed it up & a splash of Worcestershire sauce. It turned out great & I will do it the same way when I make some more  biggrin.gif
