Smoked Salmon in cedar paper wraps

  1. no worries - I only use cedar planks or cedar paper wraps.  I am going to try the cedar paper wraps who knows just might turn out pretty good.  thanks for the info SmokinHusker.

    Do you have any pics of your cedar paper wrap? I tried a thin cedar paper roll thing for some shrimp that worked great but it caught fire right away because I threw it on the grill with the shrimp..

    I'm not sure what you're trying to accomplish with your smoked salmon but I smoke fish a lot (mainly trout these days, 3-6 lbs) and I would just recommend brining them dry for a few hours and smoking them normally, without the cedar paper. If you want more details, search the forum or PM me and I have some recipes I can share.
  3. Yes I have pics of my cedar papers.  I use them all the time on my regular grill and they work just fine (with nothing catching on fire).   I have soaked my cedar papers in white wine, red wine, sake and bourbon for an extra kick and I have never had any problems - plus it really entertains my dinner guest every time I grill fish.  I don't eat fish but I make it all the time for my family and friends and I love hearing all the great feedback - I wrap myself a chicken breast or a piece of sausage. Just thought it would be great to try smoking fish with cedar papers for something different and interesting.  I have smoked fish without the cedar planks and cedar papers all the time and it's all attached.  Josie

    Ah yes, those are what I used. Thank you for following up. Do you have an application pictures of your previous smokes or you salmon using that cedar paper?
  5. sure I do....I made these for my husband Jerry, our Pastor and his wife.  this night I also grilled rib eye and porterhouse steaks.....I soaked these wraps in white wine coated each fillet with my secret Dijon mustard sauce topped with chopped veggies, wrapped and grilled - served with more secret sauce.  They were enjoyed by all......Josie

    Sorry for all the questions.. how'd you cook those? did you soak the paper? How long did you cook them?

    They look great!!
  7. no worries about all the questions - that's what we do on this forum right - ask questions......I cooked those on my preheated Char-grill (350 degrees).  I soaked the cedar papers in 2 parts white wine and a splash of water for about 2 hours in a baking pan. cooked the fillets for about 6 minutes per side because I had the sauce and all the veggies on top of each fillet. They turned out incredibly moist and flavorful.........that's the way we roll here in Vegas!

  9. thanks Bear.  Repeating tonight - my man's favorite dinner[​IMG]
  10. my man requested Cedar wrapped salmon & veggies again tonight so here are better pics for ya  I was pressed for time tonight so I decided to cook my salmon a little faster (and hotter).  Soaked my cedar papers in white wine/water earlier today (for 2 hours), seasoned salmon and veggies with my seafood rub, wrapped in cedar paper and cooked hot and attached.  Josie

    cook salmon 6 minutes per side - try using a piece of aluminum

    cooking on the second side

    Nice, but what's happened about the original subject of smoking salmon in cedar paper?
  16. thanks Dave.  Yeah I have lots of experience in this method.  Really easy way to cook salmon.
