Potato Smoke (the idea)


Potato Smoking "Chips"

Potato Smoking "Chips"

The idea is to take potatoes, dehydrate them, and use the “chips” as a kindle for smoking.  The thought came from a smoked salmon and potato dish that I had. Why not use the potato to smoke the salmon? Will the flavor of potato come through?

Today I took some Yukon Gold Potatoes and made the the dehydrated “chips”, broke them into small pieces and added a small amount of sugar and rice.  I took a salmon fillet and lightly smoked it.  Although the smoke was slightly on the harsh side, it carried the aromatics of potato very well.  The salmon was smoky and had a hint of potato. Now for refining and improving on the technique and a dish is in the works.
