- 12 oz wild Alaskan coho salmon
- 1 oz dill weed
- 1 alder wood plank
- 3 oz spicy sesame seed oil
- Salt to taste
Place the salmon in a large bowl and top it will all of the oil, dill and some of the salt. Let it sit for 20-35 min.
Prep the Grill
Fire up a grill or smoker and char the wood plank on both sides. If not using a smoker, place some soaked wood chips in a vented aluminum foil pouch on the hot coals. Set up the grill or smoker for low heat - 180° F for the smoker, or indirect heat with a small amount of coals on a grill.
Place the salmon on the plank then on to the grill or smoker. Smoke for 90 mins at 180° F in the smoker, or between 20-35 mins on the grill.
Eugene's Tip: This smoked salmon is perfect to top salads with or to make into salmon burgers.
