Salmon is a delicate fish that does well when lightly smoked and gently seasoned. Cooking it on a plank over a live fire gives it a great smoky flavor while letting it hold its shape.

  • Combine butter, garlic, 3 sprigs dill, and salt in a heat-proof dish. Place in the smoker until butter is melted and infused with flavor, at least 20 minutes. Remove from the smoker.

  • Lay salmon on the plank of wood. Brush salmon with the flavored butter. Season with salt and pepper. Place in the smoker and close the door.

  • Cook salmon until easily flaked with a fork, about 40 minutes. Check at 10-minute intervals and baste with butter.

  • Serve garnished with lemon slices, remaining dill, and remaining flavored butter.

Cook's Note:

Bake salmon in the oven instead of a smoker if preferred.
