    Chef PotPie's Note:

    This is simple as can be, but it is the best brine for smoked salmon that I have ever used. My grampa Poppie did it like this and my husband and I decided it was the best way. Give it a try and let us know what you think.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Dissolve the salt and sugar in apple cider or juice, then add more apple cider/juice to 'cover' the fish. Yes, they float, it's okay, just try to turn them if you can now and again.
    2. 2
      Let them soak for about 6 hours. Drain and rinse them.
    3. 3
      Here's the important part: Dry them off and leave them uncovered in the fridge for at least 4 hours, more hours the better.
    4. 4
      This time allows the brined fish to form a "pellicle" on the brined part which takes the smoke flavor.
    5. 5
      Now smoke the fish for whatever you usually do. YUM.

      Way too salty, and otherwise pretty flavorless. I would recommend starting with a shorter brining time the first time you try this, and working your way up if you think you'd prefer a saltier fish. We found it almost too salty to stomach.
