Salting

Post  Dunney on Tue Aug 03, 2010 8:02 pm

I'm new to cold smoking, and would love some advice on how much and how long to pre-salt salmon before smoking. I've seen quotes of any time between an hour and 60 hours, with a light sprinkling, to an inch of salt. How do I choose? Any advice appreciated as I'm longing to get my new CSG on the go.

Hi and welcome to the forum Dunney.
I usually cover the salmon completely with salt, then place a heavy object on top (separated by some cling film) and leave in the fridge overnight (about 8 hours). Wash the salmon once you remove it from the fridge, under cold water, then hang it for another 8 hours, or until it forms a pellicle. Then smoke it for at least 10 hours.

Full details, slightly different can be found Here http://www.macsbbq.co.uk/Salmon.html
