Smoked Catfish Filets - Qview

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Pulled a couple of catfish filets out of the freezer & decided to try to give them a smoke. Once thawed I dried them on some paper towels & hit them with Tony Chachere's seasoning. Here they are ready for the smoker...

I started them out for the first half hour or so at about 200° with some apple chunks. For the last 30 min. or so & cranked up the heat to about 250°. Here they are all done served up on a bed of rice, corn, peas & lima beans. Topped it off with some lime juice & tartar sauce - damn tasty...

Thanks for lookin'. icon_cool.gif

Nice looking meal. Although, I love Snapper but that would work as well. I think I am going to shoot you some points.gifover there. Yes, I think I will. I like it.

One question: How long did the process take please?

Fish will cook up fairly quickly so it went fairly fast on the smoker. After the first half hour I flipped them over & moved them toward the heat. Turned out great - moist & tender. Only just a little over an hours time total cooking time.

That looks awesome! I love me some catfish. I grew up in GA, and my Dad, Uncles, and Grandad were always bringing home catfish from the river. We always fried it -- haven't tried any smoked yet, but that's definitely on my "to-do" list!

Thanks for posting. smile.gif

That looks great Iceman!------------>>points.gif

I haven't tried smoke/cooking any fish like that yet (catfish is a great choice!). Up to now, all I've done was smoke Salmon & Tuna real hard (long & slow), to hold in your hand & eat as a snack. Yours looks like a GREAT MEAL. I gotta try that soon.

Thanks for showing,
