One of my family's favorite dishes that I make is smoked Salmon. It is absolutely delicious and so easy to make. Let me show you how to make a Garlic Dijon Herb Butter, that you simply apply to the Salmon that will add some wonderful flavors to the fish. Throw it on your smoker until it reaches temperature and enjoy!
1 Lemon for slices
2 tablespoons fresh Parsley, chopped
4 tablespoons Butter, softened
1 tablespoon fresh Lemon juice
3 Garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tablespoon Dijon Mustard
1 tablespoon Luvafoodie Garlic Lover's Spice Blend
Heat your smoker to 175 degrees. My smoker has a Smoke setting that produces more smoke at this lower temperature. Try to keep it as low as possible below 200 degrees.
Coat the Salmon with a little Dijon Mustard. Sprinkle some Luvafoodie Garlic Lover's Spice Blend on top. If you do not have this simply use some salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
In a small bowl, combine all of the herb butter ingredients. It's best to soften the butter and not completely melt it to ensure a solid coating and more even distribution of the ingredients on the salmon. Using a spatula or spoon, generously slather the herb mixture evenly over the Salmon. Place lemon slices on top of the of salmon.
Place the Salmon directly on the grill grates of your Smoker and smoke for 1.5-2 hours (time can vary depending on the size) until the internal temperature reaches 140°F. Remove the smoked Salmon from your smoker, tent loosely with aluminum foil, and rest for 10-20 minutes before serving. Serve and Enjoy!
