Stove Top Smoker Smoked Salmon Gone to Heaven

"From the cookbook, "Smokin". In this simple recipe, a plump juicy salmon steak sits on top of tender white beans and sweet leeks. The beans and leeks are given a last minute zing with golden brown garlic and fresh parsley. This is perfect winter food-warm and cozy and incredibly easy. The beans are also excellent served with sea scallops or jumbo shrimp."

Ready In:




  • Smoke the salmon steaks over medium heat, using alder, cherry or maple using your stove top smoker. (see related recipe).
  • While the salmon is smoking, heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and butter in a large skillet until the butter is foaming.
  • Stir in the leeks, season them lightly with salt and cook, stirring until they are wilted, about 4 minutes.
  • Gently stir in the beans, toss a few times, and pour in the chicken broth.
  • Bring to a boil, adjust the heat to simmering and simmer, uncovered, until there is enough syrupy liquid left to generously coat the beans, about 8 minutes.
  • If the salmon is done to your likeness before the beans are ready, remove the smoker from the heat and open the top an inch or two.
  • Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a very small skillet over medium-low heat.
  • Scatter the garlic over the oil and cook, shaking the pan, until it is a very pale golden brown, about 2 minutes.
  • Remove immediately from the heat and stir in the parsley, then stir the whole thing into the beans.
  • Taste the beans and add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Divide the beans between two warm shallow bowls.
  • Top each with a piece of salmon and serve at once.
