Salmon Sausage

Recipe by Chef Greg Mathias, Reel Action Alaska LodgeCourse: MainCuisine: American


  • 3 lbs Alaska salmon, deboned and skinless

  • 1 tsp ground ginger

  • 1 tsp white pepper

  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper

  • 1 tsp black pepper

  • 1 tsp thyme

  • 2 tsp salt

  • 1 tsp granulated onion

  • 1 tsp fresh garlic

  • 1/2 c chopped green onion

  • Vegan sausage casings


  • Cut salmon into strips. Mix all ingredients. Set overnight to allow the flavors to meld. Use the sausage attachment on your KitchenAid mixer to fill the vegan sausage casings. Slowly add salmon mixture to the grinder using the plastic pusher to stuff them as tightly as possible. Be sure to tie off both ends before smoking. Smoke sausages at 180oF for approximately two hours. Chef Greg prefers a Traeger grill using apple-flavored pellets.
