Recipe Friday

Recipe Friday from @mrs___shell:

Maple glazed smoked salmon -

2-3 pounds salmon fillets

Curing liquid -

4 cups cool water

1 cup maple syrup

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/3 cup kosher salt

Zest of 1 orange

Maple orange glaze :

1/2 cup maple syrup

1/4 cup orange juice

combine all of the ingredients for the curing liquid and stir until the salt is dissolved. Gently submerge your salmon portions in the curing liquid, cover, and refrigerate for 8-12 hours. If your salmon fillets are thin, 8 hours should be enough. Thicker fillets will take 12 hours.

Remove the salmon from the curing liquid and transfer to a cooling rack positioned over a cookie sheet. Place the salmon in the refrigerator for 8 hours, or overnight to develop a pellicle.

In a small bowl, combine the maple syrup and orange juice and set aside.

Preheat your smoker to 165-170 degrees F. Place the salmon on the grates skin side down and smoke for 3-4 hours, or until the internal temperature of the salmon reaches 145 degrees. Brush your salmon with the maple/orange juice glaze every hour while smoking.
