Hot Kippered Salmon

We fish commercially in front of our home on Cook Inlet. I developed this recipe as one of the many ways to enjoy our catch. This salmon dish is healthy and delicious served with steamed rice, broccoli and a salad.

    Incredible! After spending $19 for a 1/4 inch slice of kippered salmon in NYC, I searched for a way to make in my home. Kippered salmon was always a part of Sunday bagels with my parents. This was better than anything I ever ate then or now! Thanks for the simplicity and delight.

    Excellent, probably with any strong fish. Also made it with tuna.

    I misread the directions and accidentally put too much salt on the salmon and not enough liquid smoke. Despite this, I think it was an interesting combination of flavors and I look forward to trying this again, with the correct amounts of ingredients.
