Let me start this off by saying, I’m definitely not a food blogger. Actually, I always told my sister she needed to start a food blog. I’ve recently realized I’ve been cooking a lot of red meat (we get a beef butchered each year) and not enough fish and chicken. Someone in the house (not me) tested higher for bad cholesterol, so I’m trying to cook healthier dinners. My daughter Madison is the only one in the house that won’t eat seafood. Actually until about 8 years ago I refused to eat it also. I purchased a package of salmon from Sam’s Club recently and decided to try and smoke it on my smoker Andrew got me for Christmas. This smoked salmon recipe got full approval for a repeat!
What I Used
- Frozen Salmon Filets Thawed Out
- Chipole Seasoing
- Brown Sugar
- Maple Syrup
- Soy Sauce
- Worcestershire Sauce
I’m definitely not a food blogger, because this is the only picture I took of the entire meal. I’m pretty sure my 16 year old scarfed it down without even taking a break.
How I Made the Smoked Salmon Recipe
I mixed 2T of brown sugar and 1T of chipole seasoning together and coated the top of the salmon. Let sit in the refrigerator for an hour.
Heat the smoker to 225 F and cook for 1 hour. After an hour combine 2T maple syrup, 1T Soy Sauce and 1/2T Worcestershire Sauce. Brush the salmon with the marinade and turn up the heat to 375 and cook for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit for 10 minutes before serving.
According to Andrew, he’d prefer me to add in more salmon and fish than chicken to his diet, so I’ll be testing out more seafood recipes for him. I was so glad this impromptu dinner was a hit!
