Sweetened Salmon at

I like a touch of sweet and savoury with my salmon. My favourite salmon recipe is brined, and then coated with honey and peppercorns. She Who Must Be Obeyed picked up a salmon fillet and wanted it for dinner. I didn’t have time to brine so, I invented Sweetened Salmon on my Louisiana Grills Pellet Smoker.

I started by mixing mustard, mayonnaise and honey together. I rubbed that on the fillet and generously sprinkled Louisiana Grills Tennessee Apple Butter. You could use any rub you like as long as it has a lot of sweetness.

I put the salmon in the pellet smoker that had been preheated 350 F oven. You could cook it in an oven but it won’t have the hint of smoke I like.

The length of time to smoke will vary with the thickness of the salmon. This fillet was about 3/4 inch thick at the widest portion and took 25 minutes to get to an internal temperature of 150 F which is the way I like my salmon.

We served it with a green salad and whole wheat garlic bread.

The Verdict

This turned out very well. The Tennessee Apple Butter has a great sweet/savoury blend and the salmon was moist and tasty.
