It's that time of the year...when the avid fishermen are bringing in the salmon. Our friend who happens to be a fishing guide, has generously provided us with a good supply of salmon. And hubby has been trying out his new smoker...the one the kids gave him for Christmas. He's quite enjoying his smoked salmon...
...better than candy to him! It's been a bit of an issue trying to decide when to pull out the smoker...since it has to sit out-of-doors and is not supposed to get wet. We haven't had too many suitable days here this year...with no threat of precipitation. We finally came up with a plan that works just fine! The smoker has gone to the farmyard and now sits in the shop...where there is a roof overhead and the smoke bothers no one. And since hubby's over there all day anyhow...he can keep an eye on his smoking salmon. Today he is smoking salmon for some friends who caught their limit at Campbell River last week. So...if things are smelling a wee bit fishy over here...you know why.
And since the salmon was fresh off the smoker...we enjoyed some for dinner last night. Tortellini with smoked salmon and a herbed cheese sauce...superb! Though I love salmon...I really don't enjoy cooking it all that much. So I quite like this method of cooking it outdoors!
B.C. salmon. Check it out!
