Alder wood is preferred when smoking salmon but any smoking wood will work fine. This Wood Grilled Salmon Recipe doesn't overpower the salmon but does give the fish a mild and delicious flavor.

What You'll Need

  • 1 salmon fillet, skin still on (about 1 to 1 1/2 pounds/450 to 700 g)
  • 3 tablespoons/45 mL honey, warmed until runny
  • 2 tablespoons/30 mL butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon/15 mL dill weed
  • 2 cups/475 mL alder wood chips, soaked in water

How to Make It

1. Preheat grill fr medium heat.

2. Mix together the melted butter and the runny honey. Place the cold salmon fillet skin side down and spread the honey/butter over it evenly. Sprinkle with dill weed. Put the wood chips in a smoker box and place on grill. Oil grill grates really well before cooking fish.

3. Place salmon on grill, skin side up over a medium heat. When the salmon skin begins to curl around the edges and the bottom has good grill marks carefully turn.

When the meat through the thickest part flakes easily and reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees F., remove and serve.
