This recipe is award winning. No seriously, this fresh Alaskan smoked salmon has won awards. I brought it to a hospital potluck pretending like I made it (my dad did) and won first place out of hundreds of contestants including the kitchen staff.




Smoked salmon in moderation can be a great protein packed snack. Yes, there is some added sugar in this recipe but again, moderation. Serve your smoked salmon on sliced cucumbers, whole grain crackers or bagels and add it to salads. You really can’t go wrong. When you have a great Alaskan summer full of fishing it’s okay to smoke some of your salmon.

Pro Tip: I highly recommend getting a foodsaver vacuum sealer to keep fish fresh! If you are making a big batch, it’s worth a little extra work. Being able to pull out a bag for social events is always a hit. Everyone love smoked salmon and crackers. It’s also great to make a party dip with!


Health Benefits of Alaskan Smoked Salmon:

Salmon is a nutrient dense protein! I encourage at least 2 servings a week if it’s a food you enjoy and if you have it available.

Omega-3 fatty acids-which have been shown to be anti-inflammatory, lower blood pressure and decrease risk factors for disease.

Protein- helps prevent lean muscle mass loss, supports bone health and many other body functions. Salmon typically has 22–25 grams of protein per 3.5-ounce serving

Packed with vitamins and minerals – Salmon is a great source of B vitamins, potassium and selenium.

Studies have shown consuming salmon may help you control your weight by reducing appetite, boosting metabolic rate, increasing insulin sensitivity and decreasing belly fat.
