Is there anything better than dipping a slice of French bread into a bubbling, cheesy, gooey artichoke dip? Probably, but this stuff is pretty doggone good! I got this recipe over 20 years ago from a good friend and it's been a staple around the holidays for my family since. Such a simple recipe, but one that makes family and friends come back for more.

We always have a big spread for Christmas morning: gorilla bread, lefse, and smoked salmon with bagels and cream cheese. I always smoke the salmon myself using our stove top smoker. It's so easy, and so stinkin' good!
If you'd like to try it yourself, here's the recipe. Just follow the instructions according to the smoker you are using.
1 cup brown
1 cup kosher
1/3 cup soy
5 1/3 cups
2 pounds salmon
Mix first four
ingredients. Add salmon; make sure it’s
submerged in liquid.
Marinate 6 to 8
hours.Smoke until dry.
stovetop smoker, ½ hour on stove top, then 1 hour in oven at 250º.
When life itself seems lunatic, who knows where madness lies? To surrender dreams--this may be madness; to seek treasure where there is only trash. Too much sanity may be madness! But maddest of all--to see life as it is and not as it should be.
