Hot-smoked honey & orange glazed salmon - first try

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

Hi folks,

 

This one was inspired by a recipe I found in the "Slow Fire" book... Quick, easy, but the results are absolutely thrilling. What do you think?

 

 

1 hour brining prior to smoking, then - 40 min on 225F, hickory smoke, and finished with a glaze of honey, orange juice and orange zest.

 

Brine (for up to 2 lb salmon fillet):

 

- 1 tbsp sea salt

- 2 tbsp brown sugar

- 1/2 tsp onion powder

- 1/2 tsp finely ground white pepper 

- 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

- 2 cups water (1 hot, 1 ice)

 

Combine the spices with 1 cup boiling water and whisk until salt and sugar fully dissolve. Then - add the ice water and chill until very cold.

 

For the smoking, dust the fish with some sweet paprika (I've added also some dried thyme on top).

 

Glaze:

 

- 4 tbsp honey

- 1 tbsp freshly squeezed orange juice

- Chopped zest from 1 orange

Thanks!

 

I loved this one, really. We were 5 people at the table, and this was the hors d'oeuvre (appetizer)... 3 lb of the salmon disappeared within seconds!

Nice!!! I've just recently started cooking salmon...a little here and there, and nothing fancy, just to get my feet wet.

 

The zip from the orange should really hold back some of the richness from the salmon. I've squeezed lemon over them with other simple seasonings, and it's good, but this glaze just sounds so....wickedly simple and good!

 

Thanks for sharing!!!
