Easy Honey Smoked Salmon

28 Oct

This recipe is one of the easiest recipes I have ever posted. Smoker bags are very popular in Finland. A lot of people use them even at campfire or in Saunas. They can be used for meats, sausages and seafood.  I am still operating with one arm only, so this method made cooking easy. I smoked enough salmon to have for salads an other night.

  • smoker bag
  • salmon fillet with skin on
  • 4 tbs honey
  • salt and pepper
  • red pepper flakes if desired

Mix the honey and the seasonings together. Baste the salon filet with the honey mixture. Place the salmon in the bag skin side down. Grill according to the directions.

Zesty Marinated Salmon

23 Oct

I have not been able to do much cooking with a broken arm, but now that I am able to do little bit more, grilling is a great option. It is easy enough to prepare a marinate and throw the fish on the grill. My husband and I thought this was a home run!

  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  •  salmon fillet

Mix all of the ingredients together except the salmon.
Pour marinade into a resealable plastic bag or glass bowl. Add salmon to marinade and gently toss to coat. Place into refrigerator and marinate 2 to 24 hours.
Prepare an outdoor grill for medium-high heat.
Drain excess marinade from salmon fillets. Place the salmon on soaked cedar plank, skin side down. Grill until fish is flakey.
