Cured and Pecan-Smoked King Salmon with Hot Sauce

In BBQ - Grilling - Smoking, Recipes, Seafood by Mark MaskerLeave a Comment

The key to preparing salmon this way is to make certain that your smoke is rather cool, about 100 degrees. If it is warmer, decrease the smoking time. This recipe takes a fair amount of time, but most of that is spent waiting rather than working. The selection of sauces served is up to the cook, so feel free to experiment. A horseradish sauce will work also. The salmon can also be served on bagels, as pictured here. Note: This recipe requires advance preparation.

Burning Sensation: Crab Cakes With An Attitude

In BBQ - Grilling - Smoking, Recipes, Seafood by Mike StinesLeave a Comment

Crab cakes – a variation on New England’s fish cakes made with cod or pollock – are popular along the coast of the Mid-Atlantic States, the Gulf Coast, the Pacific Northwest and Northern California, where the crabbing industry flourishes. Along the East Coast, blue crab is traditional while on the left coast Dungeness crab is commonly used. (A lot of crab is now imported from the Far East and Venezuela. Try to find local crab whenever possible. True Maryland crab will be labeled with MD and three digits to identify the harvester.)
