I'm glad that I live 10 minutes from the grocery store...

Smoked and canned some salmon this week! We did kind of a candy, cured in the cooler for 6 hours with salt and brown sugar, then smoked overnight. Getting the fire just right is a pain, but will get easier with practice. Be safe out there!

I had to opportunity to eat a piece of freshly smoked salmon once, it was wonderful. I've always wanted more. That looks delicious

It looks like you are eating good ! I'me awfull tired of fish myself. Dad and Grandpa fished gillnets till I was 26. I was a walleye purist. White fleshed fish is bland without breading and salt and pepper, or batter. Not a lot of choice in fish here. Burbot,walleye,pike,perch,saugers and then rough fish.

I make jerky just like you do, but out of venison.

My wife takes pretty good care of me, it shows in my middle! Fish can be tiresome, especially salmon. It's easy to get in a rut. I pan fried some last night for the first time in a long time. Got some shallow oil in a cast iron skillet piping hot, threw some diced jarred garlic from the store in the oil, smothered the salmon itself in olive oil with that same garlic, fried it hard first on the flesh then the skin. Was pretty tasty!

TrapperLes,

I've been wanting to try burbot ever since I heard it called "the lobster of the north".
Is it good? What's the best way to prepare and cook it?

I don't know about the rest of the world, but I boil burbot for about 60 seconds in water in a french-fry basket, then broil it on the oven broiler on tinfoil at about 450 for just long enough to crisp up the edges and dip in melted butter. The little bit of fillet beyond the vent is stronger than the backstrap.

I have rolled in flour,then battered egg, them cracker crumbs and fried in lard like other fish, but found it not as good, and not as firm as walleye or pike. Nothing wrong with the flavor though.

That sounds delicious Les.
I love to eat pompano sauteed in butter and garlic under low heat.
Hopefully someday I'll get a shot at some burbot.

Fried halibut in bacon grease for dinner! Put some good parmesan on there too.
