    Annacia's Note:

    This is adapted from a Martin Yan recipe. I'm absolutely in love with it. I have made tea smoked chicken in the past and also loved that. If you enjoy the unique and delicious you must try this.

      This was very yummy, and much easier to prepare than I thought. Using the foil made clean-up a breeze, and I used a steamer basket instead of a cake rack since I did this in my dutch oven. Couple of minor subs: regular soy sauce, real sugar, and fresh ginger in the marinade. For the smoking spices, I only had anise seed, so I used 1 tsp, as well as ground cinnamon, again 1 tsp. The only thing I will do differently next time (and there will be a next time!) is to allow the spices to begin to smoke BEFORE adding the salmon. By having it in the pot already, it came out a little too done for our tastes, because we like our salmon medium, with some pink in the middle, but this is personal preference. Served this with Asian Sauteed Spinach and jasmine rice, with the reduced marinade drizzled over it - paired very well. Thanks!
