    easy fish here thin fillets i started with just over 1lb of fish...only smokin for two here , well more like2 and a1/2 cause pup will eat certain fishes
    my basic brine for this dish is 1/2 cup rice vinegar , 1/8 cup kosher sea salt, juice 1 small lime and save half's to throw in as well....three qt's water cold preferably...and herbage , i cut fresh herbs with scissor's so i measure like poop i'd guess a few tbsp of each of the following , tarragon , chervil , dill , and a few whole sprig's of thyme....and then 4 tbsp of old bay seasoning.....look's like this in the soak..


    i gave it a few hour's to absorb the flave's and the vinegar you'd think made it sour......but no !!! it help's kick the lime in better.

    after the soak a towel dry and a super light coat of grapeseed oil.....then i sived the herb's from the soak to replant along with 1 zested lemon remember both sides count...looked like this before the in time...

    i did a few skewer's of shrimp and pineapple too , but do i post with or on other thread ???? anywho i'ma vert smoker for now sow my rack water was made the same as the brine.....but without the salt...i guess the next step would be to show the sweet and spicey smoked scrimp's right ??
    simple no brine shrimp......washed dried . thinned 1/8 cup honey with 1/8 cup rose wine.....to make sticky , then dusted with mccormick grill mates sea food rub.....with pineapple chunk's between to seperate the meat...

    I've got the shrimp and tilapia in my freezer, when the weather warms up a bit I'm gonna give this a try.
    I'm fond of non land meat dinners too.[​IMG]

    Good smoke my friend. Tilapia is one of my favorite fish, it has a delicate and light texture to it. Thanks for the Q View.

    Tilapia is on sale right now at Wally World and I don't care what shrimp cost, I'll be doing this meal this week. Nice job jerkyaddict.

    Looks great man. May have to try that one, though it seems a waste to light the charcoal for just a short smoke.
