I've used this receipe about 50 times and it seems to please most people...especially when it just comes off the smoker and served with some flatbread crackers.
Nothing too difficult or time consuming...just the way it should be.
Atlantic salmon has been at a great price recently ($4-5/lb in San Jose stores) It seems to hold moisture very nice.
-Fresh orange (We use Cutie oranges sometimes)
-Teriyaki (your choice, but I found a Safeway bulk called Yoshida's we really like)
-Lemon pepper (This is a good one in a grinder container - Worldmarket orange and lemon pepper)
-toasted sesame seeds (find these in the cultural section of the grocery store to get the best price)
Wash salmon under the tap and place on heavy foil on a baking pan (I found a baking pan to be a great way to transport to the smoker) Smoke it still on the foil.
Squeeze the orange on the salmon first, then add the teriyaki, brown suger and lemon pepper. sprinkle lots of sesame seeds on last.
Smoke about 3-4 hours with your favorate wood (I use hickory). I know it is about ready when the oil extrudes from fish and looks like fat residue around it. The fish gets brown and slightly dry on the surface.
It's easy, healthy and tastes good. This is a great appetizer for a pool party. Bon appetit!
