Smoking Gun

  3. Place the Salmon Pieces in an airtight container with a tightly fitting lid
  4. Load the smoking gun chamber with the wood chip
  5. Using the hose attachment, aggressively fill the container with smoke and replace the lid – place in refrigerator for 10 mins
  6. Repeat this process 4 – 6 times depending on depth of smoke required – The Salmon is now smoked and ready to cook
  7. Mix together the Mayonnaise, Caper Berries, Lime Zest and Juice, Chopped Dill, Chervil and Shallot
  8. On a high heat, place a non stick frying pan. Cut the de-seeded Cucumber into desired size and using a little Olive Oil, sear the Cucumber until slightly blackened in colour
  9. Set the Cucumber aside – Dress with vinaigrette and Season
  10. In the same pan, quickly sear the Salmon Portions on all sides leaving slightly pink in the centre – about 1 min either side will be sufficient
