Boy Smoked Salmon
In a large stainless
steel pot combine all ingredients and stir until
all the salt and sugar are dissolved.
Slice the salmon filets in the portions you desire. I normally
slice them into 1 1/2 to 2 inch wide pieces. Rinse the pieces
to make sure they are clean, put into the brine and refrigerate
for at least 8 hours. I normally let them soak overnight 10 to
12 hours. Remove the pieces form the brine, pat dry with paper
towel and then allow them to air dry before smoking.
Smoke fish with apple or hickory wood until the thickest part
of the fish is 150 degrees.
1 gallon water
3 cups kosher salt
1 cup dark brown sugar
Garlic to taste
(1 large teaspoon)
2 salmon filets with skin
Boy Salmon Spread
the salmon with your favorite smoking process. In a food processor
combine cream cheese and the smoked salmon and process to your desired
consistency. Some like more salmon and some like more cream cheese?
The cream cheese does not seem to matter either - low fat, fat free
etc... As you can see this is a very versatile recipe.
Serve with capers, finely diced onions and your favorite crackers.

Prudhomes Seafood Magic Seasoning
|Start your gas grill and set to high. Wash and pat dry salmon
or steelhead fillet, season both sides with garlic salt, lemon pepper
and dried dill weed to taste. Cover and allow to marinade in the
refrigerator for about one hour. Layout enough aluminum foil to
lay the fillet on, fold the sides up about 1/2 inch, pour in desired
amount of extra virgin olive oil. Place the fillet on the oiled
foil, cover with more foil and roll up the sides tight. Put the
package on the grill - if the fillet was thin turn the burners down
to low, if the fillet was thicker turn the burners down to medium
(Note: poke a small hole in the top of the foil). Depending on the
grill cook for 15 minutes, that's what mine takes, you may have
to adjust by a minute or two. Enjoy
