Learn how to smoke salmon at home with this easy recipe: Hot Tea Smoked Salmon!
250gms– 2 cups brown sugar
250gms– 2 cups long grain ricebut not Basmati which is too aromatic
45gms– 1 cup tea leavesyou can use up to double this amount
Put the sugar, rice and tea leaves into a bowl and mix together.
Line a wok with foil and pour in the mixture. Put the wok on the fire to heat up.
Season the salmon with salt and spray it with some oil.
Spray a bamboo steamer with oil (or line it with baking paper – be sure to make some holes in the paper for the smoke to pass through).
Place the steamer with the salmon in the wok, about 5 cm – 2 inches above the tea mixture. There needs to be room for the smoke to circulate or the salmon will over-smoke. Cover with foil or a wok lid.
Cook, covered, for 7 – 8 minutes, then set it aside for 5 minutes to rest.
