Craig use the same 4:1 sugar to salt that you do for the salmon. Make sure and get the bellies. They are the best thing ever smoked. I assume that you'll get into some Durado (mahi mahi) too. Be sure and bring some of those home. In my opinion its the best eating fish around.
I have a friend that goes on the 15-20 day trips out of San Diego. He's seen some mega fish!
Now for a simple light meal using smoked tuna, or salmon. I like to make some linguini noodles, add capers a bit of olive oil, tarragon. lemon zest and then a squeeze of fresh lemon. Add fish give it a quick toss and serve.
