Smoking salmon at home is easier than you think, especially with easy and useful techniques guaranteed to help achieve maximum flavor.
The Three Types to Smoking:
1. Cold Smoking: Used to enhance flavor, cold smoking salmon may not cook the fish through, but once it's baked, grilled, roasted or sauteed the smoky flavor will shine.
2. Hot Smoking: Used to both enhance flavor and cook proteins through, hot smoking is a great way to make salmon that's brimming with flavor and tenderness.
3. Smoke Roasting or Smoke Baking: Much like it sounds, smoke roasting and smoke baking combine two cooking methods into one, flavor-charged process. Don't be surprised if you hear them refered to as barbecueing, pit baking or pit roasting.
