Smoked Salmon with a Maple Glaze

Discussion in 'Fish' started by duckfever, Feb 18, 2012.

  1. So this fall we got some salmon and made our first attempt at smoking it using Bearcarver's recipe.  It was incredible.  The only thing we thought could make it any better was to add a maple glaze on it.  Sooooo we grabbed 3-1/2 lbs of fresh salmon last night and tested our theory.  The results were outstanding!!!!  I highly recommend this recipe combination to anyone who wants a great "snacking" salmon.  We ate it with some pickled eggs (made last weekend), crackers and cream cheese.  

    Thanks to Bearcarver and Dutch for sharing their recipes!!!!!



    In the pot! (Sorry forgot to get a pic of before it went in)

  2. Wow.  That looks great!  The other day the UPS guy told me he delivered a package to a guy who had some salmon on his smoker.  He said the guy gave him a taste and he couldn't quit talking about it.  I knew right then I was going to try salmon soon. ...and now this!
  3. Salmon Candy!  Looks delicious.

    [​IMG]  I am going to have too try this. I am the only one in my house that likes salmon, but with the added maple glaze I might convert a few over. Now all I need to do is fined some salmon that's not cost prohibitive. Last salmon I looked at was over $7.00 per

    I am another who is not the most salmon oriented guy.  But that looks great!

    My other half might be knocking at your door begging for a handout.

    Good luck and good smoking.
