Just Another Quick Supper (Disco Lookalike)

Just Another Quick Supper

 

Stealing a page from Disco’s book, I whipped up a quick supper tonight.  Miss Linda is away for a couple of days, so I decided to smoke some salmon.  The only time I bother to make fish is when she’s away---she just can’t stand the stuff—I love it.

 

So I took a couple of bags of Costco Stuffed Salmon out of the freezer to thaw.  Once they were thawed, I removed the stuffing (rice, imitation crab, and shrimp) and set it aside. 

 

 

 

 

 

I rinsed off the salmon, patted it dry with paper towels, and set it out in front of a fan for a couple of hours to develop the pellicle.  A light seasoning of lemon pepper, cracked sea salt, and dried dill were all that I used. 

 

 

 

 

I set the MES for 225 and filled and lit the AMNPS loaded up with Alder.  Just the other day, at Dave Omak’s suggestion, I put 4 legs on the AMNPS to improve air flow under the pellets.  What a great difference that  made!!  I didn’t have to nuke the pellets as I usually do, and the AMNPS performed flawlessly in the mailbox.

 

The salmon went into the MES on the second rack and the tinfoil pie plate of the rice stuffing went on the first rack.

 

 

 

 

I let it smoke for just under an hour and pulled it when the IT hit 135*. 

 

The salmon was great—moist, tender and flaky.  Just how I like it.  The stuffing mixture took on a nice bit of mild smoke and was a lot more flavorful that just oven cooking it in the salmon.  I served them up with my red cabbage, raisin, and dried cranberry coleslaw.

 

 

 

 

Thanks Disco for the great idea.   thumb1.gif

Thanks guys.  I love all types of seafood, but never get much chance to eat it.  I'm the only one who eats it, so its hardly worth the effort.  I just save my seafood for Miss Linda's monthly trip to Calgary to check up on her dad.

Thanks Richie.  I'm only back for about 2 weeks, then I'm off to the next job.

 

And thanks for the point.

 

BTW, I made your peach cobbler.  Its fantastic.  We both loved it.  Thanks for bumping that old post.
