Plank Smoked Salmon with Seasoned Butter

5 1 5 1

Perfect after a long day fishing, this Plank Smoked Salmon with Seasoned Butter provides garlic and dill flavor infusion.

Salmon is a delicate fish that does well when lightly smoked and gently seasoned. Cooking it on a plank over a live fire gives it a great smokey flavor while letting it hold its shape. The seasoned butter is made ahead of time, to infuse as much garlic and dill flavor into the butter as possible.

This salmon can be as easily made with fresh-caught salmon around the camp, as it can be made in the backyard for a family gathering. Serve it with crusty bread, a green salad, and/or fresh vegetables.

Ingredients

Seasoned Butter Sauce

125g unsalted butter

3 cloves garlic, peeled and halved

3 sprigs dill

1 teaspoon salt, to taste

Planked Salmon

1 large salmon fillet

salt and pepper, to taste

To Serve

lemon, to garnish

additional dill, to garnish

Equipment

heat proof dish

1 plank

Recipe Directions

  1. In a heat-proof dish add the butter, garlic, dill, and salt. Place in the BBQ and melt, but do not boil. The longer this can infuse, the stronger the flavors, a minimum of 10 minutes.

  2. Preheat the smoker to 125 degrees C (250 degrees F).

  3. Lay the salmon on a cooking safe plank of wood, such as untreated alder wood.

  4. Brush the salmon with the flavored butter then add to the smoker.

  5. Cook for 40 minutes, basting every 10 minutes. The salmon is cooked when it gently flakes away when pulled.

  6. Serve the salmon drizzled with some of the remaining seasoned butter, then garnished with the lemon and dill. Serve the remaining seasoned butter on the side.

Your cook time in recipe says 40 min but in side table 10 mins 40 seems a bit long for a salmon filet but I could be wrong !
