Smoked salmon chunks

  1. Well after seeing all the recent salmon threads recently I had to make some more too  [​IMG]

    I cut up a couple pounds while I was waiting to get a butt out of the smoker & put in some ribs.

    Here are the dry ingredients that will turn into a brine.

    Salmon added.

    & this is the brine.  The salmon stayed in it for 8 hours & got stirred 4 times.

    After the 8 hours I rinsed them off

    & put them in front of a fan to get a good, quick pellicle.

    They are currently doing a 4 hour stint in the smoker with alder.

    I can give you measurements if you need them. It is mostly salt, sugar, & peppers.

  5. And here they are done - unfortunately they won't last long at all as I can't stay out of them  [​IMG]

    What species Salmon did you smoke?   Looks pretty light in color.   What was the ratio between Salt and Sugar? 
  7. I wish I could tell you  [​IMG]   A friend of mine went on a guided salmon fishing trip up in New York/Canada & gave me some when he came back...

  8. Here is the recipe I used for anyone interested...

    For each lb of salmon

    1/2 cup salt

    1 1/2 cups brown sugar

    2 g black pepper

    .5 g cayenne pepper

    I also added some granulated garlic when I mixed it up & a splash of Worcestershire sauce. It turned out great & I will do it the same way when I make some more  [​IMG]

    Happy smoken.
