    This is one of my favorite ways to use up trimmings from springer salmon and smoked.

    Im guessing that you pulled these out of the willamette when you were in town last week?

    Next time you’re in pdx, say hi.. I’d love to show you some of the recipes I’ve made based on some of your stuff.

    Sure would like to hear about your mustard pickling method.

    I like this idea of using fish. I’ve only done rillettes by cooking the meat very long & slow in fat. Did a squirrel in lard last season. It sure wasn’t pork or duck but it wasn’t bad. I do need to try the salmon for sure.

    Wow, this looks incredible! I would imagine salmon bellies would be particularly nice for this? Or maybe that’s just me craving salmon bellies!

    I have never seen a recipe for rilletes that is so simple. I’ve got to try this even if I don’t catch the salmon!

    I made some of this yesterday with some Rainbow trout I was needing to get out of the freezer. I hot smoked some of the fillets quickly and then followed the recipe with one exception. I added some rosemary in addition to the chives. It was amazing.

    When I scrape the salmon from the backbone its already “flaked” but raw. Like a ground meat. I can’t see how I could “slip” it into boiling water then “flake” it when I pull it out. I imagine it would turn into a type of soup. Should I ball it up first? Or can you recommend another recipe for use of my “salmon scrapings”? Thank you this does sound great just want to clarify.
