First Time For Fish - Steelhead

Discussion in 'Fish' started by mikesr, Oct 8, 2009.

  1. Today was my first attempt at smoking fish. I had some Steelhead fillets in the freezer so I thawed them yesterday and smoked them today using Dutch's sauce. My wife is watching her salt intake so I made it kind of bland. Since it is freshwater (Lake Erie) fish I decided to take it up to approx. 160-165 degrees.

    BTW, this sauce is similar to the Ginger/Teriyaki sauce that I posted in the sauce/marinade section.

    Nice Fish...

    One of the downfalls of living in Kansas is we don't have any good BIG fish like that...

    Just Catfish, Carp, Large Mouth Bass, Crappie, Bluegill, Walleye.[​IMG]

    I think we are the only state that doesn't have Trout...[​IMG][​IMG]
  4. Smoke some walleye. i have fishing buddies that keep the larger walleyes for the smoker. They keep some smallmouth bass also. Lake St. Clair and the Detroit River are infested with an overabundance of smallies. My friend Alex makes a smoked smallmouth pate' that is excellent.
