Smokin´

We like to smoke. 😉

Smoked foods not only have an interesting aroma, they also impart a delicate flavour to the foods. We have all tried Smoked Salmon (we also make our own, using Olive Wood), and have tasted the nutty nuances that it has to offer.

We decided to give Ox Tongue a try.

Smoked Ox Tongue

Normally, I would reserve Ox Tongue for a simple Marinated Grill, with perhaps some Jéow Som (Sour Dipping Sauce). However, we couldnt resist in marinating it in Asiatic spices before giving it a good smoking with Wood Chips.

The result was great. Not only did the Tongue retain its smooth texture, the smoking gave it a “Salty Spicy” taste.

Honestly, the dish needs a little work, but from the first impressions, things are looking good. Not only will smoking preserve the meat, but the taste will also mature over a few days.

Its hard work making the appetizers to order (especially with someome shouting down your neck) 😆 but truth be told, Sak has settled in well.
