so i soaked the leaves and got my herbs together i used tarragon and dill and got a mix of smoked sea salt , sea salt and sugar together
the salmon was coated in the tea leaves and then set on a bed of the salt & herb mix and then coated with the salt and herb mixed and wrapped and left for 16 hours in the fridge to cure .
the next part of the process is assembling your smoking unit i used a deep tray with baking racks inserted in it , under neath the racks i inserted trays of ice and either end of the tray little trays of tea leaves and placed the salmon on the racks and began to light up the tea leaves
smoked the salmon for 35 minutes by sealing the container then turned the salmon and repeated the process again !!! the results are amazing i will be buying myself a proper smoker !! its a process well worth trying and i think i will experiment with other teas and flavours and herbs and different fish give it a go you will be surprised i promise
