Kippered salmon

edited 4:24AM in EggHead Forum
Can you explain the difference between kippered salmon and smoked salmon?

    Anne Henry,[p] I have a great book on the subject but it's at home right now so I'm going from memory. Kippering is a method of hot-smoking salmon (or other fish, e.g., herring). The fish is brined or cured, then smoked starting at cold temperatures. The heat is gradually raised until the fish gets completely cooked. Salmon can also be cold-smoked. In this method, the meat is brined or cured, then dried and smoked at temperatures usually not exceeding 90F for the duration of the "cook".[p]MikeO
