In this recipe we’ll show you how you can make plank smoked salmon yourself! This is a really easy and tasty way to smoke salmon at home, with only a few basic ingredients.
1 Make an open fire.
2 Put the salmon on the wooden board with the skin down. Sprinkle the salt over the salmon. Be generous.
3 Mix the Jaloviina or the whiskey with the sugar and pour this over the salmon. Score the salmon with a knife to let all the flavours infuse.
4 Use a small hammer and knife to make holes in the salmon. Put the wooden nails in the holes and use the hammer to put them into the wooden board.
5 Place the board vertically against the open fire. For small fillets: let it for around 40 minutes. For large fillets: let it smoke for around 60-80 minutes. Smoke the salmon while regularly turning the board around.
6 The plank smoked salmon is ready when the meat easily falls off the skin. Enjoy!
