Hot smoked Catfish?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I was kicking around the idea of hot smoking some catfish fillets. Nothing too crazy just season with some cajun seasoning and toss in the smoker.

Any advice on temps duration etc? I'm a noob when it comes to fish smoking!

I would just smoke them on high heat for a few minutes in marinara sauce and then ladle the rest of the sauce over the finished result and some pasta!


But if you want something more intricate and long, then hopefully someone else will chime in.


I'm sure it will be delicious no matter what!

Season the fillets w/ your seasoning and put them in a pan overnight in fridge. Then hot smoke at 225 till meat flakes w/ fork . Or you can cold smoke for 2 hr and then bread n fry

I tried some hot smoked catfish over the weekend. Seasoned with cajun seasoning and smoked @ 220 for about 2 and a half hours. Turned out so good I didn't even get a chance to take any pics!

Did similar last fall after a day fishing. I'm with you, it's a pretty cool way to cook catfish!
