Just a Quick Salmon Dinner in the Pellet Smoker

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

We do look for wild salmon in the supermarket as She Who Must Be Obeyed likes it. We get some decent fish but there was some that were bright red sockeye, well trimmed and reasonably thick fillets. The price made me stop breathing for awhile but the missus is worth it.

 

I got it home and cooked it right away. I didn't have a lot of time so I went easy.

 

I sprinkled the fillet with Louisiana Grills Mesquite Rub 'n Grill, just a bit to give it some saltiness.

 

 

I put it in the pellet smoker at 210 F over Competition Blend pellets.

 

 

I smoked for 40 minutes and then brushed the surface with Italian salad dressing.

 

 

I smoked for 20 more minutes to an internal temperature of 135 F.

 

I let it sit for a couple of minutes.

 

 

I served it with fresh bread, green salad and a zucchini tomato stir fry.

 

 

The Verdict

 

This was incredibly easy and good. The salmon had a nice texture without being dried out. The Italian dressing and rub gave it some salty, sour, herb notes. Best of all, She Who Must Be Obeyed really liked it. My work is done.

No, that would be the missus when I make too much of a mess doing prep work.

Perfect timing Disco.  I'm just about to put a couple of salmon steaks on the MES.  Thanks.  Yours looks great.
