“Basic recipe that can be tweaked to your liking. We serve smoked salmon with a sour cream/dill/horseradish sauce over sliced baguette to guests that rave on and on about how incredible it is. This recipe works well with halibut too!”

I used 2 lbs side of wild Alaska salmon. Cut recipe in half, marinated in refrigerator over night. Don't have a smoker so I used my grill on low, about 300F for 30 min, cedar planks under the fish. Let it cool to room temp. Came out terrific.
