Smoked Steelhead Lox

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Following BBALLY's method again. Added a little ginger to the dry cure. That with the dill and citrus zest have it a light, fresh briney flavor and aroma. I almost hate to smoke it. Almost.

Here it is fresh out of the cure


And here it is after soaking and rinsing, drying and forming the pellicle.


Stay tuned, smoke happens tomorrow or Saturday.

Look up bballys post entitled "lox, a picture guide" and follow it verbatim. It's the best guide to smoking lox I've seen. Only thing I do differently is add a tsp of ginger to the rub and give it 2 days wrapped in the fridge after pellicle formation. I also dry it for a couple hours in front of a fan instead of his 36 hours in the reefer.

Well the pot didn't arrive yesterday. If it doesn't show today I think I might freeze the fish until it gets here. Anyone know if that will cause any issues?

Nice looking fish.  Did you catch it?   And what is the pot for?

Yeah, I caught it in the seafood section at Costco😄😄
The pot is the tamale pot to complete my mini WSM. I suppose I could just cold smoke it in a verbs board box, but I think I'll just wait til the smokers done.
