Simple Pecan Smoked Salmon
©2001, The Naked Whiz

A very simple recipe for grilling delicious salmon filets using BBQr's Delight wood pellets. (I bought mine at Ace Hardware, and I have seen it at Wal*Mart also.)


  • 2 - 12 ounce salmon filets
  • Wishbone Italian Dressing

Preparation Directions:

Place the salmon in a baking dish and cover with Italian dressing. Make sure both sides are thoroughly covered. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for 2 hours.

Cooking Directions:

Stabilize your egg at 375 degrees. Place two packets of BBQr's Delight Pecan Wood Pellets (follow their directions on the package to prepare the little foil packets) on the fire. While you give them a couple minutes to start smoking, place the salmon filets in a fish grilling basket (I use the generic flat rotisserie basket that you can find at Lowes). Place the basket on the grid, skin side up. Cook 12 minutes. Turn the basket over and cook 13 more minutes. Serve on a platter with freshly sliced cucumber.

Special Instructions:

If you like, slice 6-inch pieces of french bread lengthwise, lightly butter, add shredded parmesan cheese, close back up, wrap in foil, and place on the fire at the same time you start the fish. This avoids having to turn on the oven in the kitchen!       Home       Search Our Site       Email The Whiz       Listen To Whizcast       Whizlog       Buy Whiz Gear       Privacy Policy       Kamado Grille
