  • 1 lb Wild Caught Sockeye Salmon can use any salmon


  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tsp liquid smoke
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp curing salt optional


  1. Remove pin bones from fish fillet with needle nose pliers. Leave skin on fillet.
  2. With a sharp knife, slice long strips lengthwise 1/4"-1/2" thick from the "head" of the fillet to the "tail".
  3. Slice across the previously sliced long strips cutting into 3"-4" pieces.
  4. Assemble all the ingredients of marinade in a bowl or ziplock bag and mix well.
  5. Add the salmon strips to the marinade and marinate for 6-24 hours in the refrigerator. Mix the strips several times during marinating for evenly coated strips.
  6. Strain jerky strips in a colander and then dry with paper towels to remove any excess marinade.
  7. Place strips on a dehydrator tray or oven cooling rack on top of a oven pan to catch any drippings.
  8. Dry at 150F if using a dehydrator or as low as your oven will go if using an oven.
  9. Jerky will be done when it is completely dry and to your texture liking. It took me 9 hours to dry this jerky in my Excalibur Dehydrator.
  10. Remove skin from jerky and eat!
