Getting ready to smoke some Chilean Sea Bass

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

I couldn't find much about smoking Fresh Chilean Sea Bass so I have it marinating in some Italian seasoning and a dash of soy sauce.  It is for dinner so I guess I will smoke it for a couple of hours using pecan wood and see what happens unless anyone else has a better idea.

couple of hours may be to much....be careful and keep a sharp eye on those. Chilean Sea Bass mostly fished out, rarely see them anymore

Good Point Chef!

Some fish is better smoked and some not.

Maybe just grill with a couple chunks of pecan burning on the grill?

Thanks for the advice.  Chilean Sea bass is pretty oily.  Don't you think I could get away with smoke for a while then finish on the grill like Todd suggests?  Maybe a one hour smoke?  We have a Super H mart  http://www.yelp.com/biz/super-h-mart-diamond-bar-2 which is a Korean market with the freshest seafood I have seen.  Whole and filet fish of most kinds.  They always have fresh Chilean Sea Bass at prices near half what the big box markets sell it for if they even have it.

Can't help you with a recipe, Willie, but I could always help eat some !!!  drool.gif

 

I don't have enough line on any of my reels to reach any Chilean Sea Bass, so I never smoked one.  biggrin.gif

it looks about an inch thick so i would say one hour in the smoker should be quite tasty, dont want to dry it out

Yes your right.  About 1".  Here it is after 30 minutes.

Fifty minutes and it off the smoker.  This was a nice smokey flavor on the outside while the inside remained so moist the juices hit the plate. A keeper and a new fav.

Thanks guys.  The funny thing is I woke up this morning hungry. That fish doesn't stay with me very long.
