My dad's sister in Alaska is the queen of smoked salmon. They grew up on a Southeast Alaska beach, fishing and eating salmon, so they know what good salmon tastes like, and everybody in town goes to her for salmon smoking.
This is her recipe, which we use for smoking salmon in the smokehouse we built down here in Washington.
Step 1: You Need
- A smokehouse and firewood
- Good, fresh, oily fish- king (Chinook) and sockeye (red) salmon are good for smoking.
- Brown sugar
- Russet potato
- Oil or cooking spray
- Really sharp knives
