Fresh Yellowtail!!!

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

 

Smoking up some fresh yellowtail.  Brined for 24 hours. Rinsed well.  Added a little of my rub and into the smoker for 1.5 to 2 hours.  Going to make Fish Dip out of it YUMMMMMMM. Smoking with a small chunk of Pecan.

 

 

Enjoying a Firestone Walker Pale 31 to make it all worth while!!

I am jealous!

 

Yellowtail is a great fish when you can get your hands on it.  Especially fresh off the boat!

 

Good luck and good smoking.

never had pacific yellowtail, except in sushi, looks tasty! I do mostly great lakes stuff, salmon, trout, and whitefish.

Love yellowtail!  Blackened, grilled, smoked, and even sashimi style!

 

I just came home with a LOT of mangrove snapper and yellowtail after spending a week in Florida.  

 

While in Florida, I fell in LOVE with the smoked fish dip!  I'd love a recipe if you have one that's good.

pacific yellowtail are a different animal (literally) than the yellowtail you are thinking of, from the keys.

 

the pacific yellowtail usually means either one of two jack species, close to a greater amberjack.

 

yellowtail snapper is a snapper species, delicious as all get-out, and very abundant in the keys and carribean as a whole.

I had no idea!  After the google search, I see a big difference between the 2.

 

Thanks for the info!

    finely chop. I used Smoked Porgies

    1 1/2 Rounded Tbspn sour cream
    1 Tbspn Capers Chopped & (Drained)
    1/2 tspn fresh Dill Chopped
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste  

   Soften cream cheese, mix in all the other ingredients except the fish,add
 fish after every thing is smooth. Refrigerate for a few hours serve with your 
 favorite cracker.

CB This comes out very good,give it a try.

I try to make yearly trips to the keys for fishing... though I've been slacking the last two with a pregnant wife and newborn.... I vow to hit the keys again next year. One good trip and I have enough salty fish for the year.
