Each year we collect a bountiful harvest of red salmon during the summer. A portion of this yield usually goes to making salmon jerky. This delectable marinade makes the salmon jerky to die for, and I have yet to taste a better recipe!

  • Stir soy sauce, molasses, sugar, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, black pepper, liquid smoke, and hot sauce together in a glass or plastic bowl until marinade is well-mixed. Place salmon in the marinade, ensuring every strip is covered. Cover bowl and refrigerate for 4 hours.

  • Remove salmon from bowl and drain liquid using a colander. Pat the salmon dry using paper towels.

  • Place each salmon strip in a dehydrator and run the dehydrator according to manufacturer's instructions until desired doneness is reached, about 6 hours. Check every few hours for doneness.

I really liked this however I felt the "spicy" got lost. I think red peeper flakes would bring more heat but that is just my opinion. I made two different salmon jerky recipes this weekend and this one was by far the best. I may just tweak it a little next time. Plenty of flavor but just not enough heat for me. Read More
