How to Cook Smoked Salmon with Chef Gorm Wisweh

Cooking salmon using the Morsø Forno Wood Oven

Why settle for grilled salmon, when you can do so much more? With the Morsø Forno you can grill, roast, braise and even smoke! Today Danish chef, Gorm Wisweh, prepares a delicious smoked salmon, served with a fresh potato salad.

Serves: 4

Ingredients:

600 gr fresh salmon with skin. Preferably in a single piece.
1 tbsp salt
1 tbsp sugar
400 gr potatoes boiled with salt, bay leaves and a couple of garlic cloves. They must still have a bit of bite.
Dill, parsley, chives, lovage or any other of your favourite herbs – don’t hold back!
200 gr radishes
200 ml cottage cheese
A dash of cream
1 handful smoking powder

Method:

Blend salt, sugar, freshly milled pepper and chopped wild garlic (ramsons) together and rub into the fleshy
side of the salmon. Let it stand for 1-2 hours, or preferably overnight.

Warm through the Forno, but not to grilling temperature. Stoke up rather more cautiously.

Scrape off any remaining salt-sugar mixture. Lay the salmon fleshy side up on the grill insert. Sprinkle smoking powder into the Forno and wait for 1 minute.

Place the salmon into the Forno, put on the door and lay a wet cloth over the chimney. This well and truly concentrates the smoke.

Smoke for 20 minutes and check whether the salmon is nearly ready by pressing it gently. If it flakes, it is ready. Otherwise, give it another 5-10 minutes without the door and cloth on the chimney, so that the Forno gets more air.

In the meantime, cut the radishes into thin slices, possibly using a mandoline, and lay them in iced water.

Chop all the herbs semi-fine and mix with the cottage cheese and cream. You could also add a few drops of lemon juice or lime juice.

Stir the herby cottage cheese and halved potatoes together and garnish with crisp slices of radish.

Serve on the side with the still-warm salmon.
