Smoked salmon

Method

  • Carefully remove the bones from the salmon fillets, if there are any.
  • Line the inside of an old pot with 2 layers of aluminum foil.
  • Follow the same process for the inside of the pot’s lid.
  • Put the sugar and the spices into the bottom of the pot and cover them with a piece of aluminum foil, after pricking it several times with a knife.
  • Place a small rack into the pot. The rack has to be smaller than the pot in order to fit inside.
  • Brush the salmon fillets with the olive oil, season them with salt and pepper, and place them on the rack.
  • Transfer the pot over high heat. 
  • Once the salmon starts being cooked and you see the first smoke coming out, seal the pot with the lid and lower the heat to medium.
  • Cook for 15 minutes.
  • Open the lid and check if the salmon fillets are ready, depending on your tastes. At this point, they are medium to well done. If you want them more well done, leave them in for 5 more minutes. 
  • Remove the salmon from the pot. 
  • In a bowl, mix the mixed salad with the cherry tomatoes and the vinaigrette. 
  • Serve the salmon with the salad, sprinkle with lime zest and thyme, and garnish with lime slices.
