Smoked Salmon Heads Pulled Into Brown Rice Spaghetti!!!!

  1. Happy Friday you fabulous smokers!

    It's been a while, but I did smoke some fantastic salmon heads today! And they were off the charts delicious!

    The two heads were rubbed in grapeseed oil first, and then smoked over high heat for 20 minutes with hickory chips.

    I pulled that succulent meat out of the heads and some skin and luscious fat as well, and the succulent combination was tossed with a gluten-free brown rice spaghetti and some green onion and olive oil and red pepper flakes and blue Persian sea salt and some lemon zest I squeezed lemon too! And some chopped Italian flat leaf parsley added a little something as well!

    This was amazing! And I drank some of my delicious Barcelona beer that is also gluten-free, Estrella Damm'a "Daura!" Terrific!

    Please have a very happy weekend, and smoke and drink something amazing! Cheers! - Leah

    Morn'n Leah......

    My neighbor just scored 4 salmon (I think fresh frozen) and asked if I could smoke part of them. The heads I gave to a buddy of mine whose Chinese wife make the most incredible fish head soup. I cut the collars off to smoke up for the pit masters to sample while the fillets from 2 fish get smoked and the fillets from the other two will get BBQed.

    This plan is for Sunday coming up........8 of us.......girls in the kitchen sipping wine and giggling.......making sides and soup. Guys on the deck drinking beer or wine and watching the smoker. Tuff job but someone had to step up.......

    Your meal looks outstanding as always. Have a great weekend........

    Nice job on the Salmon Heads
  6. Thank you so much Brad, David, Steve, & Tropics too!

    The fish head stock or soup you mention (Brad), must just be so out of this world!

    And I am flattered and delighted that you ALL have enjoyed my various food doings - simpleton that I am aside - as it is so much fun to share!

    These heads weren't fancy by any stretch, but wow were they ever so "baby soft" and fantastic in the pasta!

    Happy weekend to all, and happy smoking and drinking and celebrating with fabulous people!!!

    Cheers! - Leah

    Hey Leah......

    I called Joni and asked for her recipe.......fat chance. She won't even allow me in her kitchen when she is making it. Says the recipe is 4 generations old and she won't give it to me until she hits 70.......she is only 55.

    But I did tell her about your idea with the pasta so she said she would add Chinese noodles to her soup this time "in honor of my friend Leah".

    Oh happy taste buds........
