This hot smoked salmon is loaded with 10 cloves of garlic. While that might sound like a lot, once you've tried it you'll probably want to add more. Serve this salmon over a bed of fresh greens, with grilled vegetables, or serve as an appetizer


  • 1 large (about 2 pounds/900 grams) salmon fillet
  • 10 cloves of garlic (minced)
  • 1/4 cup/60 mL lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons/45 mL butter
  • 1 teaspoon/5 mL dried sage
  • 1 teaspoon/5 mL dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon/2.5 mL salt

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Prepare smoker for a 4 to 5 hour smoke at a temperature around 200 to 225 F/95 to 110 C.

  3. Rinse salmon thoroughly. Combine remaining ingredients and spread over the top side (as opposed to the skin side) of the salmon.

  4. Place in smoker for 2 hours depending on​ the thickness of the fillets.
