Smoked Salmon with Mustard and Dill

Randy Mayor
Rich, meaty salmon fillets are seasoned with a paste that offers more flavor than a marinade. A skin-on fillet is sturdier and less prone to stick to the grill.

Ingredients

2 cups wood chips
1 tablespoon minced fresh dill
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
3 tablespoons sweet-hot mustard (such as Inglehoffer)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 (1 1/2-pound) salmon fillet
Cooking spray

Preparation

Soak wood chips in water 30 minutes; drain.

Combine dill, juice, mustard, and salt, stirring well. Place salmon, skin side down, in a shallow baking dish; brush mustard mixture over salmon. Cover and refrigerate 20 minutes.

Prepare the grill for indirect grilling, heating one side to low and leaving one side with no heat. Maintain temperature at 200° to 225°.

Place wood chips on hot coals. Place a disposable aluminum foil pan on unheated side of grill. Pour 2 cups water in pan. Coat grill rack with cooking spray; place on grill. Place salmon, skin side down, on grill rack over foil pan on unheated side. Close lid; cook 35 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness.
