Smoked Candied Coho Salmon

  • Bag of Demerara Brown Sugar
  • 7/8 cup of pickling salt

Clean salmon, remove skin and dark meat. Cut into strips, rinse under cold water and dry on paper towels. Mix salt and brown sugar together. In large container, layer the mixture with the salmon ensuring each piece gets well covered. Place in the fridge and stir the mixture every 12 hours as it turns to liquid. Once you have a liquid, you can add maple syrup and spices of your choice (optional).  Brine fish for 24 to 48 hours. Remove fish from brine and hang on smoker racks using toothpicks to dry for 1 hour, aiming a fan at the fish to help dry quicker. Fish will and feel like a gummy bear when ready. Set up smoker using alder or maple wood. Smoke fish for 1 hour with no heat, then turn heat on to 150 degrees for 2.5 hours and 200 degrees for 2.5 hours. (Cooking times will vary)
