Something new and out of the blue.. water that is! While I've never really heard of this fish, mom had a bag in the freezer she insisted I smoke while home. So here it goes!
2 hour brine with some kosher salt, brown sugar, pepper, touch of honey.
Let it sit out and dry for a bit while I prepped the smoker. Didn't bother rinsing the brine off. Tossed on some more pepper, paprika, and honey before I put them in.
In the smoker @ around 215 for nearly an hour!
They weren't the golden brown I had hoped, or the pic of them in the smoker doesn't give them that look, compared to in the bowl.
Surprisingly turned out really good! Credit to Czarcastic's honey glazed tilapia post from a while back, made my first brine a success!
