Hot Smoked Salmon + Avocado Salad

Smoking the Salmon

 

|n a recent food magazine they had recipe for hot smoked salmon, so I decided to give it a go.

To smoke the fish they recommended a deep roasting tin with a rack, but I used a wok and a round defrost rack from the microwave, as you need air to go all around the fish.

Method:

  • Scatter a good handful of earl grey tealeaves on the bottom of the wok / pan, fit in the rack.
  • Mix together the juice of one lemon with 1 tbsp of brown sugar, dissolve the sugar in the lemon juice and brush the salmon with this.
  • Lay skin side down on the rack.
  • Make a hood with tin foil and cover the wok / pan.
  • Put on a low heat for 10 mins, turn off the heat and leave to smoke for a further10 mins, lift out. Serve hot or cold.

 I used the salmon cold for a starter at a dinner party, it went down very well recipe to follow.
