First attempt at some salmon

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

A week ago I would never have said this would be going on my smoker.  I told a co worker of mine that all fish was just gross.  End of story.  She asked if I had ever tried a piece of smoked salmon. I said it didn't matter, that I wouldn't like it.  Well......the next day she brought me in a piece to try.  Holy crap! that was one of the tastiest things I have ever eaten.  She got to give me a big "I told you so."

 

So here I am today about to put 2.5 lbs of salmon on the smoker.  I am a jerky lover and after seeing cmayna's post with the jerky pics I decided to dive right in on that too.  I took a portion and sliced it up for jerky.

 

I sort of messed up and did the ratio wrong on the brown sugar / salt, and did a 2/1 ratio.  I also added a couple quarts of water for a wet brine, so I could brine overnight.  sprinkled just a bit of sweet and spicy jerky seasoning on the jerky strips.  Everything is on the racks and drying right now.  I will update later.

Salmon is a lot of fun to play with, it can come out many ways and still be good.

I'm really glad I'm breaking out of my norm and trying something different. The jerky is downstairs still going. I'm excited to see how that turns out. The guy at the meat counter thought I was nuts when I mentioned salmon jerky.

Salmon can be barely cooked, moist and flaky, or it can be smoked until firm and dark and intense which is good for using in smaller amounts, like in a dip or spread.

Way to go in trying new things. I just made ABT's with oysters inside. Gotta try new stuff. Life is too short.

johnnyb99,

Nice looking fish there.  I see you started out at 125*.  Did you then bump it up to what?  and what internal temp did you pull the fish at?  Once you master Salmon jerky, you'll have a sudden increase of friends.    I'll be doing some this weekend.
