WOW!! This sounds killer. Especially the Orange Habby sauce. Its only 9 am and this recipe is making me hungry... LOL I had planned on smoking some salmon this weekend. Not cold smoked though. The texture wont be quite the same but I would think it...morejimrug1 in Peoria loved it
You got me going with just "San Diego"!!! My favorite place in the US. This recipe sounds delicious. I must admit I have a lot to learn. What is a "non-reactive" pan? Thanks for the post. Marciamao65 in Griffith loved it
