Olive Oil and Herb Marinated Smoked Salmon

This recipe for marinating and smoking salmon is absolutely delicious! If you like foods cooked in olive oil, then you’ll love this.

Some would ask….why would you add olive oil to salmon when it’s already oily on it’s own? You’ll just have to try this recipe to find out for yourself.

This makes enough marinade to handle 3 to 3 1/2 pounds of salmon, so invite your friends and family.  I guarantee you’ll get accolades all around!

Olive Oil and Herb Marinated Smoked Salmon

Ingredients

  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 4 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • About 3 – 3 ½ lbs. of salmon, skin removed

Preparation

  1. Combine all of the ingredients (except for the salmon) in a mixing bowl. Whisk ingredients together.
  2. If salmon fillets still have the skin on, remove the skin.
  3. Place salmon and marinade in a large zip-loc plastic bag. Place in the refrigerator to marinate for about 30 minutes.
  4. Get your smoker stabilized at about 225 to 250° F. Put some wood chunks of your choice on the fire.
  5. Place the salmon fillets on the smoker rack using a grill screen with smaller holes. (Purchased at most stores in the grilling department). Maintain the 225° to 250° temperature. I generally flip them once after about 15 minutes for more even smoking, but it's not necessary for the cooking process.
  6. I cooked them for 50 minutes and removed them at an internal temperature of 135° F.

Grilled Sweet Soy Salmon

Grilled Sweet Soy Salmon-postWe just can’t get enough salmon around our house. We seems to choose salmon more than any other fish, or meat for that matter when it comes to grilling time.

My wife put this marinade together using soy sauce as the base, and sweetened it up with brown sugar and honey infused vinegar. Man is this good. Our only mistake for the grill out was not getting enough salmon, because everyone was asking for more!

Grilled Sweet Soy Salmon

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 pounds salmon fillets
  • 1/2 cup honey infused vinegar (found in Asian section of grocery store)
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon allspice

Preparation

  1. Rinse the salmon fillets and remove the skin. Place the fillets in a plastic container, or a plastic bag.
  2. Combine all the marinade ingredients, and microwave on high for about 15 seconds. (Just long enough to help dissolve the allspice.) Whisk to mix.
  3. Pour the marinade over the salmon fillets and marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  4. Once marinated, remove and discard the excess marinade and set the fillets out at room temperature, (no longer than a half hour or so), while you prepare your grill.
  5. Grill over a medium hot fire turning the fillets once. For the average fillets, this should take about 5 minutes per side.
