Jerked Salmon


This grilled salmon is coated with a flavorful jerk rub and then smoked. You top it off with a sweet barbecue sauce that really makes this a great smoked salmon.

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 1 minute

Total Time: 31 minutes

Yield: Serves 4


  • 1 1/2 pound salmon fillet
  • Grilled Jerk Salmon Rub:
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon dried onion flakes
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne
  • 3/4 teaspoon thyme
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • Jerk Barbecue Sauce:
  • 1 cup seafood stock
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon tamarind
  • 1 tablespoon ginger root, minced
  • 1 tablespoon jerk rub (see above)


Combine jerk salmon rub ingredients and mix together. Reserve 1 tablespoon for the sauce and rub over the surface of the salmon. Let sit for 1 to 2 hours. Prepare smoker for a 1 hour smoke at about 200 degrees. Use alder or apple wood for smoke. Let salmon sit at room temperature for about 20 minutes before placing in smoker. Place salmon on smoker and let smoke for 1 hour or until it is cooked all the way through. Make sauce by mixing all ingredients in a saucepan over a high heat. When it boils, reduce the heat to a simmer and let it cook down by about a third. About 5 to 10 minutes. Keep warm. When the salmon is done carefully remove and place on platter. Serve with sauce on the side.
