So on my most recent trip to the Italian Market, I stopped at one of my favorite kitchen stores, Fantes. It's absolutely fantastic. It's tiny and it's got this treacherous ramp inside that is terrifying to walk up/down in heels, but it's also extremely well-stocked.
I've been wanting a smoker for a long time, so when I saw one on sale, I immediately picked it up. It sat around for a few weeks before I could devote the time to try and use it, but I finally got the chance to do so this afternoon.
Obviously, the first thing that comes to mind with a smoker (at least for me) is salmon, so I immediately went and picked up a filet of salmon. I lightly seasoned it with salt and pepper and threw it in for about 20 minutes.
It came out absolutely perfect. Smoky, tender, and delicious! I can't wait to see what else I can smoke.
Have a great rest of the weekend and don't forget to throw your name in the hat for "Totally Vegetarian."
I am wondering what kind of smoker you purchased. I have one my brother-in-law gave me for my birthday and but is poorly designed.
We picked up an electric one at the beginning of the summer and have used it quite a few times (for non veggie stuff). I need to make salmon, because the leftovers (I know, what leftovers?) will be perfect in savory salmon cheesecake.
This looks great, I LOVE smoked salmon!
I love the Italian Market in Philly. I haven't been there in awhile. It does take us about 45 minutes to get to Philly at the new house, but we are surrounded by a mushroom farm paradise.
Anon - it's a Cameron. It's definitely not top of the line, but it handles its business well!
E - Where did you get yours??
Sara - so do I, although this hot-smokes it, which is somewhat different than the traditional cold-smoked. I do want to get a cold-smoker as well....
Heather - sounds like a great trade-off! I'd love to be surrounded by mushrooms!
