Anyone tried making it? I'm currently marinating some store bought wild salmon (in soy sauce, pineapple juice, brown sugar, cayenne, black pepper, crushed garlic, fresh grated ginger and salt) to throw in the dehydrator this evening, but I'd like to eventually try this with trout and whatever else. I hear that oilier fish is better to use, but I reckon I'll have to do some experimenting with different species. I bought some Marlin jerky from Hawaii that is absolutely phenomenal! if anyone has experience or recipes, please post 'em up!

Hi Rachel,

Well salmon and trout are oily so you've picked some good fish.

I don't dehydrate my fish but smoke them.

Here's my recipe for smoked Kokanee Salmon and Trout:

Brine: -> (NOTE: ...Brine will penetrate deeper into the fish flesh then a dry rub).
2 qt. very warm water
1/2 cup of Kosher (must be Kosher) salt
1/2 cup light or dark brown sugar
3/4 cup honey
8-10 crushed All Spice
8-10 crushed Cloves
3 crushed Bay Leaves
1/4 cup Lemon Juice
1/2 cup "Dark Rum"

Mix all together then chill brine.
Once chilled -> add salmon/trout fillets with skin on.
Let marinate for 24-36 hours.

Note: Made my own smoker (cheap).

Smoke my salmon and trout (skin side down) with a 50/50 blend of apple wood and pecan wood for 4 hours or till smoker reaches 180 degrees.

OMG Exclamation .... Kokanee Candy

Best regards,

Smoking up 28 fillets right now ! Thumbs Up
