She Who Must Be Obeyed loves salmon. I love She Who Must Be Obeyed so I keep trying to up my salmon game. I love smoking salmon and a touch of sweet really adds to it. I decided it might be good with a touch of spicy heat and this is the result.

I started with a couple of nice pieces of wild caught sockeye fillet.

Then I made up a glaze for the salmon:

  • 25 ml (2 tbsp) honey
  • 1 ml (1/4 tsp) paprika
  • 2 ml (1/2 tsp) dried ginger
  • 10 ml (2 tsp) soy sauce
  • 0.5 ml to 2 ml (1/8 to 1/2 tsp) Sriracha sauce (can substitute Hot Pepper Sauce)
Use the lesser amount of Sriracha for just a touch of heat and the larger amount for a real kick.

I preheated my smoker to 200 F and put the salmon on. You can do this in a 200 F oven but it won’t have the smoke flavour. I cooked the salmon until the internal temperature was 110 F. The time will vary depending on the thickness of the fillets. It took about an hour on these.

I brushed the salmon with the glaze and cooked to an internal temperature of 130 F which took about another 30 minutes. I brushed again with glaze and smoked for 20 minutes.
I served the salmon with oven fries and coleslaw.

The Verdict

This turned out wonderfully. The salmon had a nice kiss of smoke the honey made a wonderful glaze and the touch of heat just set it all off. Best of all, She Who Must Be Obeyed liked it!

I'm with you. My missus insists on seafood a couple of days a week and calls beef "cow".

Looks like a meal fit for a king.

Being raised on the west coast of Canada, I can't imagine not eating salmon. Thanks for the kind words!

Disco,
That looks fantastic. I need to find some other Salmon recipes for I'm getting bored (not my friends, mind you) of what I do with my default recipes. Gotta try your recipe one of these days.

Thanks for posting it.

Most kind sir! However, there is a reason those are default recipes. There is no problem experimenting but you have to go back to perfection.
