Smoked    Roasted    Salmon

Comments from the Chef: Fairly easy to prepare. I purchased the whole salmon from my local Wal-Mart Supercenter and had them remove the head and clean. I then marinated the salmon the night before and roasted it for about 35 minutes. For the size salmon I was serving, after 35 minutes the fish was perfectly done... falling off the bone. Remarkably, this recipe eliminated the overpowering flavor of salmon and rather mellowed it out. Rave reviews from all of the guests at the anniversary party... ** NOTE: Picture following the recipe is actual picture from the anniversary party of Smoked Roasted Salmon surrounded by Vegetable Rice Pilaf !!!

--------  ------------  --------------------------------
   3      pounds        whole salmon -- gutted and cleaned
                        Hickory smoke flavoring -- as needed
     1/4  teaspoon      salt
   1      dash          cayenne pepper
   2      tablespoons   fresh lemon juice
   2      tablespoons   rosemary
   2      cloves        garlic -- unpeeled
                        fresh parsley -- to garnish
                        lemon curls -- to garnish
   1      tablespoon    extra-virgin olive oil

     With a sharp knife, cut the salmon diagonally on the top side, 
making cuts one-half inch apart down the length of the fish, while 
cutting one-half inch deep. Mix the hickory smoked flavoring, salt, 
cayenne pepper, olive oil and lemon juice together. Rub the mixture into
the cuts and over the bottom side of the salmon. Place the rosemary and
garlic into the cavity and marinate in the refrigerator for 
approximately four hours.
     Place the salmon on a rack over a large roasting pan in a preheated
oven at 425F. Roast uncovered for 10 minutes per inch of thickness. 
Remove the salmon from the oven and garnish with fresh parsley and 
lemon curls.
