Smoked Salmon & Spiced Red Lentils
Both gorgeous and brimming with flavor, this hot smoked salmon makes an excellent dish for entertaining. Smoking it creates a flaky, yet juicy, filet, and seasoning it with Spicely's Organic Fish Grill & Broil spice blend offers a non-overwhelming kick.

Total Cook Time: 3-6 hours
- 2 large salmon filets (or barbecue cuts), skin intact and pin bones removed
