I had been begging for the Smoking Gun for quite some time. Dr. Food finally bought it for me for Xmas. What great fun. So last night I decided to smoke some salmon for dinner.
I simply seasoned it with some lemon pepper and a bit of olive oil and shoved it under the broiler. Then the smoking began!
It comes with shavings in hickory and applewood. We used the applewood.
It only takes 3 minutes and voila! Your fish, meat or anything else you can think of is smoked. It works great.
Can't wait to try it on more unusual things like cocktails and cheeses.
Another happy surprise was a package from my adorable kid Annie and my son in law Tim. They were in Spain and collected a Xmas gift there to send to me.
There was bee pollen (I used to feed it to Annie when she was a kid so it is kind of a "thing" with us), and honey, and saffron, and honey wine, and paella seasoning. When I opened the box it really smelled like Europe to me. What an incredible gift. I loved loved loved all of it!
and last but not least, I opened my email today and found that I had won something.
It was Healthy Bread in 5 Minutes a Day Cookbook. Right up MY alley!
