Salmon is brined with sugar, salt, and spices; coated with honey and peppercorns; and smoked over apple wood. A great smoking gateway recipe: no special supplies other than wood chips, no special equipment, and only an hour or so on the grill.
ChefSteps soaks the salmon in pastrami brine for 48 hours, then smokes it at a low temperature. The result is a smoky, savory salmon that flakes into bite-sized morsels, and has a slightly sweet bark. It's just the way salmon candy should be.
