Smoked Garlic Salmon

User Rating 3 Star Rating (1 Review)


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.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 4 minutes

Total Time: 19 minutes

Yield: 4 servings


  • 1 large (2 pounds or so) salmon fillet
  • 10 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 4 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon sage
  • 1 teaspoon oregano


Prepare smoker for a 4 to 5 hour smoke at a temperatures around 200 to 225 degrees F. Rinse salmon thoroughly. Combine remaining ingredients and spread over the top side (as opposed to the skin side) of the salmon. Place in smoker for 2 hours depending on thickness of the fillets. Check for doneness after 1 hour. Salmon is done when it flakes easily and has a consistent color all they way through the middle. When done remove from smoker and rest for 5 to ten minutes covered.

Don't overcook this !, Member LosBombero

Three filets, more than 2 lbs. total, and fish was ready in 90 minutes! Skin was left on for cooking, and was put directly on grill rack (no foil). Use a long blade metal spatula to remove fish from rack. Will try the Maple recipe next week. The smell is making my dog crazy, even more than smoked pork!!
