Smoked steelhead salmon

Definitely a party favorite in the Harris household. Recipe from Terry
Newkirk of Grand Haven, but we also credit Chris and Nikki Sheele for
making it "a thing".

Combine 1 part soy sauce with 1 part Italian dressing. Marinate up to
24 hours, but really only a couple hours are needed as fish marinates
Isn't the skin beautiful?

Today I'm smoking it on the gas grill since it is a bit windy and cold out. Our charcoal smoker doesn't get very hot when it is windy and cold... time for a new one here soon. The gas grill does great. I soak hickory chips for at least an hour. When you're ready to cook the fish, place the chips near the direct flame. Cook the fish indirect (away from direct flame) on low-medium heat for about 45-60 minutes. Times will vary based on outdoor conditions.

It's done when it looks like this...

Serve with diced red onion, capers, cream cheese, and water crackers.
