My first, and definitely not my last, smoked Steelhead Trout (with pics)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Normally we broil our salmon but today I tried smoking it for the first time.  My wife and I were blown away on how different the flavor was as compared to broiled.  We will definitely smoke more salmon in the future.

 

We "went fishing" at Sam's and got a nice steelhead trout salmon with skin on.  It was about 2.2 pounds and was almost $20.  I seasoned it up about an hour before putting it in the smoker with our favorite salmon seasoning (that we also love on pork loin).

 

 

I folded the thin parts under the main part of the salmon to help it cook more evenly.

 

 

Since it was going to be a short smoke, we decided on mesquite and lit my AMNPS from both ends.

 

 

Plopped it all in the pre-heated to 225F MES40.

 

 

Even though the AMNPS was lit at both ends, I still had TBS (thin blue smoke)

 

 

1 hour and 45 minutes later, it was at 145F.  Done and delicious.

 

 

 

The smoke flavor was very nice and the dry rub seasoning still came through.

Great post.   

 

I have seen these at Sams and thought of trying them.  

 

Now I will.

 

 

Why the broiler pan?

I used the broiler pan because I was not sure how much moisture would accumulate under the salmon if a used a cookie sheet or similar.  As it turned out, a broiler pan was not needed as there was hardly any moisture accumulated in it.

 

Thanks for the points!

Great job on the steelhead Ed!

 

I usually put my salmon on a piece of foil in or a very shallow pan.

 

I also put a few slabs of butter on top of it.

 

I have to give you a point for a awesome looking piece of fish!
