Making the smoked salmon that you buy in the supermarket is a long process that requires specialist equipment and a lot of outside space. This quicker hot-smoked version can be done in most home kitchens and requires nothing more than a baking tray with a rack and some wood chips. Hickory, oak or applewood chips are ideal for smoking salmon and will all lend a slightly different flavour to the fish, so it’s worth experimenting. Rubbing the salmon fillets with oil before cooking gives the smoke something to stick to and intensifies the flavour.
Agnar Sverisson marinates his salmon in salt, sugar, lemon, fennel and dill seeds before smoking and serving with cucumber and a yoghurt dressing. Marcello Tully’s Hot smoked salmon potato salad with asparagus and horseradish dressing makes for a simple summer lunch or try Nathan Outlaw’s Baked leeks and smoked salmon with cheese sauce for a tasty midweek supper.
