This Big Green Egg Smoked Salmon recipe starts out with a delicious soy and brown sugar marinade. I guarantee it’s going to be the best thing you ever ate!
I love visiting Whole Foods market for fresh seafood, and during my last trip I discovered an awesome deal on some wild Alaskan Coho salmon. After picking up a huge skin-on fillet, we headed down to our friend’s house in Laguna Beach.
We fired up the Big Green Egg, got some nice soaked wood chips going, and made this delicious peppered smoked salmon.
The Alaskan salmon fillets are marinated overnight in a mixture of soy sauce, brown sugar, salt and plenty of cracked pepper.
It’s then smoked at 200-220 F. I personally own the Green Mountain Grill Pellet Grill, so check out my recipe for smoked salmon on that!
