Smoking salmon in the back yard
My friend since forever had recently bought a smoking machine, as in a machine to smoke whatever food you think is best served smoked. We decided to go for something fairly standard, and smoked some salmon. The result was fantastic.
The process was quite simple. You put the fish on something flat and add salt (or whatever flavoring you prefer). You also put some wood chips on a plate and shove these into the tube shaped smoker.
Then you turn it on and let it be hot for 30 minutes or so. Then you turn it off and leave it for another 20 minutes. Then the food is done.
While waiting, we also put some potatoes in the oven and fried some mushrooms that my parents had picked in the forest.
The resulting smoked salmon was great. The rest of the food was good too, of course.
