Smoked salmon and its recipes
Fishmongers know it too well, the recipes that come along with a smoked salmon. It takes considerably less time to smoke one as compared to smoking meat or chicken. It’s pretty basic to prepare the salmon or any other fish like trout or sturgeon.
Find the freshest salmon fillet in the super market and cure the same in a brine for 2 days. Brine content essentially contains the following; water, kosher salt, bay leaves, sugar, chopped onion, sliced celery, chopped fennel and garlic cloves.
Next, dry the brined fish. It is an important step worth mentioning and should not be missed. Keep the brined dish in a cool place so that it forms a layer of pellicle that offers a sticky surface for smoke to stick to.
Once done with this, fish is ready to be smoked. It takes about 30 minutes to an hour time to smoke the fish, depending upon the different varieties. When properly smoked, fish can be put in refrigerator, to be used for at least 10 days. Here’re some common smoked fish recipes that are awesome.
