First smoked Tilapia

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I was cleaning my offset with high heat and decided last minute to see what was in my freezer. This was at 1:30 pm. The only thing I had was 2 tilapia filets.


I brined in water, 3 TBSP of kosher salt, 1/4 tsp onion powder, 1/4 tsp garlic powder, 1 TBSP sugar


It was only in brine for 1 hr, then I patted dry and put it on a rack in my fridge to dry it for 1/2 hour.


Took it out and placed 2 TBLSP EVOO on foil, put fish on foil, 

added some kosher salt, pepper, 1/4 tsp cajun seasoning, and 1 tsp lemon juice


I cooked it higher than normal for fish because of how late I was doing this, normally I would brine longer, dry longer, cook at a lower temp, but I was behine the gun.


Dinner is in 1/2 hr I'll let you know how it tastes
