A Christmas Tradition

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 sugar
1 cup kosher salt
1/3 cup soy sauce
5 1/3 cups water
2 pounds salmon

Mix first four ingredients.  Add salmon; make sure it’s submerged in liquid.
Marinate 6 to 8 hours.  Smoke until dry.
If using stovetop smoker, ½ hour on stove top, then 1 hour in oven at 250ยบ.
