It's been a busy weekend...

but I've got all the fish I had in my freezer smoked and canned.

I had 22 rainbow trout, and 3 sockeye salmon. I wound up with 32 1/2 pint jars of fish, and 4 pieces smoked salmon in the freezer. Now I have room for this years catch.

Here's the recipe for the brine I use.

1 c. pickling salt
2 c. demerara sugar
1 heaping tbsp dry mustard powder
1-1 1/2 tsp black pepper or
crushed dried chilies

Mix salt, sugar, mustard and pepper to make a dry brine. Layer fillets, skin side down in large non metallic container, sprinkle liberally with dry brine, place another layer of fish and then another layer of dry brine mix, continue until all ingredients used. Refrigerate and allow to sit for at least 2-3 hours, (longer will give you drier, saltier fish) remove fish from brine, and rinse with cold water. pat dry with clean cheese cloth or paper towels. Smoke until desired dryness is reached, using whatever chips you prefer.(I like alder or maple for fish, but hickory or fruitwood is just as good, subtle differences in flavor) If you like teriyaki flavor, brush lightly with teriyaki sauce as it smokes.

And not near as fattening as chocolate.

Very nice catch. I always wanted to try salmon fishing, but I've never had the opportunity. However, I do love to fish for trout, bass, and pike/muskie. My son and daughter are now learning many of the fishing tricks and techniques from me that I learned from my grandpas and dad. Nothing in the world is more relaxing and rewarding than a good solid day of fishing. And you have never had real freshwater fish until you clean,cook, and eat your own catch...great...now I'm hungry for some rainbow trout fillets.

NOOOOOO! Chips are thin slices of potato that come in bags and have delicious seasoning that make them BBQ, or Nacho, or Sour Cream and onion....

Fries are what they are!
