    Looks Amazing, was it moist or did it dry kinda like Lox?
     
  3. Very moist and flaky. Look at those fatty lines. It can't be dry with lines like this. Actually it was very close to a smoked salmon I used to order from Alaska. The only think that is missing is a honey based syrup they were drenched in.
     
  4. Looks mighty good. I have to do some this week for the bf's parents visiting this weekend! Thanks for the recipe
     
  5. Just ate two pieces for breakfast with some garlic toasts and earl grey tea. Yam

    Note. Brine amount is for aprox. one pound of fish to cover it in dish. Adjust accordingly if you need to fill larger bowl.

  12. You know how they say If salmon is leaking you doing it too hot and too fast. There are actually some pieces that leaked. All were at the top right corner of MES40 by the exhaust. Hot spot I guess. But thank you for kind words.
