This recipe was approved by my mom. So I think you all will enjoy your cold smoked salmon prepared this way. Take a 2-3 lb salmon fillet make sure you buy a fresh or frozen at sea fillet or you'll end up with a smelly mess. Clean the fillet and set aside, take 3cups of kosher salt, 3 cups of sugar and one bunch of fresh dill. Mix the equal amounts of salt/sugar in a bowl, chop the fresh dill up, pour 1/4" of the salt/sugar mixture into bottom of a plastic container and place salmon on top of this, cover salmon with fresh dill and pour rest of salt/sugar mix onto salmon, cover and place in frig for 12 hrs. Take salmon out and rinse off with cold water, clean out plastic container and fill with enough water to cover salmon, place salmon into water and cover place back into frig for 1hr, take out and dry off salmon and place on cookie rack and back into frig for 12 hrs to get the pellical on salmon. Place in your cold smoker and load your Amaz N Smoker with you favorite Amaz N Dust for 4/6 hrs. Vac seal the salmon for a couple of days and enjoy.
