Plank smoked salmon

    (1)

    Salmon is a delicate fish that does well when lightly smoked and gently seasoned. Cooking it on a plank over live fire gives it a great smokey flavour while letting it hold its shape.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • 125g unsalted butter
    • 3 to 4 cloves garlic, peeled
    • 2 to 3 sprigs fresh dill
    • salt to taste
    • 1 large salmon fillet
    • lemon, to garnish
    • fresh dill, to garnish

    Method
    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Preheat a smoker or oven to 125 degrees C.
    2. In a heatproof dish combine the butter, garlic, dill and salt. Place in the smoker or oven and melt. The longer this can infuse, the stronger the flavour; heat for a minimum of 20 minutes.
    3. Lay the salmon on a food-safe plank of wood, such as untreated alder wood.
    4. Brush the salmon with the flavoured butter then add to the smoker or oven.
    5. Cook for 40 minutes, checking every 10 minutes, and basting with the butter each time. It is cooked when it gently flakes away when pulled.
    6. Serve garnished with lemon, dill and the remaining seasoned butter.
