Smoked Salmon


Recommended Posts

I stupidly put a post out on Facebook if anyone wanted a side of salmon smoking for Christmas - I’ll not be doing that again as I needed up with requests for 14 so I’m afraid I cheated and bought the fish pre filleted.  It’s a dead straightforward process, 24 hours in a salt/sugar cure. rinse the salt of and 12 hours to dry in the fridge followed by a bight in the smoker.  I’ve only got 5 more to go - I’ll be glad to see the end of it 😀

Looks very nice Jonty, you could have a nice little earner there, how much are they?

I do them at cost Dave, just for friends and family.  Cost of the fish plus maybe a quid for the cure ingredients and the vac pack bag.  You can make pretty good smoked salmon out of the supermarket offer fish ‘specials’ they do at Christmas.  Even better Morrison’s offer a ‘blue light’ discount at the moment - I’ve just done the sums and these come out at £7.90 a side

It looks very tasty, the thing that bothers me.

Why on earth did you go on Facebook, you should have asked on here.  We appreciate good food and craftsmanship. 

So I'll have one too 😜

Got to be MUCH quicker on the draw!:cool1:

Very nice, never smoked fish. Ive done ribs, pork shoulder, briskets, chilli peppers etc. All done in this homemade contraption.

A nice bit of smoked dish would be nice, and maybe a block of cheese.

 

 

That looks ace Pangolin.  If you fancied doing some cold smoking such as fish or cheese, I'd really recommend one of these cold smoke generators from ProQ - they are a brilliant piece of kit.  it would easily fill your rig with a steady stream of smoke for 8-12 hours

Yup, I need something like that as I've only done low and slow with wood at 120c for hours on end.

Deffo need one of those or similar for cold smoking.
