    This is a great spur of the moment meal. We were trying to decide what to have for dinner yesterday, and this time of year we try to eat up what's in the freezers.

    It's hurricane season & even though I have a generator I try to get the freezers as empty as possible.

    I found a nice piece of salmon. It only took about 1 hour to thaw it out.

    We keep it simple, just coat with EVOO & dust with Cajun spice.


    All coated & ready.

    Creamy garlic shells with a little added garlic go really good with the salmon.


    A little butter on top & she's ready for the smoker.


    Into the Smoke Vault with Mesquite chips. This is going to be a fast smoke, so just chips & strong smoke.


    She's running about 225.


    It only took 35 minutes to cook. But it took on plenty of smoke.


    All plated up with the shells & some peas.


    It was quick to make, and very tasty. This is one of our favorite meals.

    Thanks for looking!

    Looks great Al. I hate to see you getting fat eating that freezer dry. Just pack up all surplus meat and send it west. We don't get those hurricanes here. We just call it a storm when it blows more than 100mph!

    Thanks B!

    I moved from the coast to the middle of the state about 11 years ago. Haven't seen a hurricane since. No sinkholes in our area either.

    I lived on the coast for 35 years near the beach before that, we had some doosies over there.

    Thanks Justin, I appreciate it!

    Looks delicious Al! I've been wanting to smoke some salmon for awhile now but always just end up cooking it on the grill. Might have to try it this way this coming weekend.

    Looks great, Al - I like the Cajun spice idea for fish, and salmon is my favorite fish to smoke.

    Thanks a lot Pete, we eat a ton of fish around here & salmon is my favorite too.

    Were kind of hooked on the Cajun spice thing, it doesn't matter what kind of fish were smoking we seem to always use Cajun on them.
