How to make smoked salmon

  • This salmon I simply season with salt.  Then get the stove top smoker with cherry, and apple wood chips (few pinches of each).  When you smoke the salmon because you don't want it to cook, you have to pack the smoker with ice.  
    Place the wood chips on the bottom of your smoker.  Then place your rack on top. Fill plastic zip lock bags full of ice ( or ice paks) and place on top of the tray that goes on top of your rack.  Place the Salmon fillet on top of the ice.  My smoker was too small so I couldn't get my lid on so I just wrapped the smoker in foil.  
    On medium low heat (because you don't want the salmon to cook) smoke the salmon for about 5-7 minutes.  Then turn off the heat and let the salmon stay in the smoker another 30 minutes.  Take out and place into sous vide bag.   With your water bath set on 125 degrees cook the salmon for about 10 minutes.  
    Then take out and let it cool to room temperature.  Drain the salmon and pat dry with paper towels.  Then place in a bowl.  Add your creme fraiche, mayo, salt, lemon juice, capers, and dill.  Mix well and season with salt.  Place in the refrigerator for at least an hour. Take out and adjust seasoning if need be. Then place in a small serving cup or bowl.  Top with dill and fresh salmon roe.  Serve along side with cracker and enjoy!
