3. place salmon slices in marinade for 18 - 24 hours.
4. remove salmon from brine and let stand for 30min.
5. place slices on smoker or dehydrator at 180 to 200 for 3-4 hours. Consistency should be sticky and chewy when you bite in.


This is a jerky type texture for salmon. It's simply amazing.
* If your salmon turns dark, its o.k. its just the sugars caramelizing. I personally prefer the darker pieces as the sugars are the dominant taste.
