    I love varied spice mixes, sauces, savouries and strong flavours. However, sometimes you just want to taste what you are cooking. This is what I was thinking when She Who Must Be Obeyed presented me with a beautiful wild Sockeye salmon fillet.

    I just sprinkled on some SPOG (salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder).


    I preheated my pellet smoker to 180 F with oak pellets and put the salmon on with my BlueTherm Duo thermometer.


    About 1 1/2 hours later, the internal temperature was 140 F.


    I let it sit for five minutes.


    We served it with coleslaw and pasta salad.


    The Verdict

    Simple Salmon says delicious. Enough said.

    Thanks, Bear. It was very tasty. Salmon just has such a great taste, it doesn't need a lot more.
    Thanks for the point and the follow on the blog! I would advise that some people like their salmon less well done than I do. An internal temperature of 140 F is fully cooked and firm but is the way She Who Must Be Obeyed and I like it.

    Also cmayna does a lot of salmon. I would suggest you check out his posts and message him if you have any questions.

    Thanks for the point, Case. She Who Must Be Obeyed refers to me as KISSOB. I'll leave the translation to your imagination.

    Great, Disco! I just picked up a package of frozen fillets last week thinking of the Mrs, and was trying to think of how to cook some. I love the simple SPOG approach ( the recipes I found seem overly complicated). I think I can get 180 out of my MB/hotplate/mailbox Rube Goldberg setup. It's a go for this weekend!
    Thanks & points!
