Smoked Fish Recipe

Cure Ingredients:

To prepare the cure, you’ll need 2 pounds of coarse salt, 1 pound of brown sugar, 2 tablespoons each tender quick, Garlic powder, Onion powder and crushed Bay leaves.


First, mix all ingredients in a container, then add a little bit at a time to a blender and blend into a fine powder.

Use one tablespoon of cure per pound of fish. Sprinkle all over fish and roll around to coat all fish surfaces. Now, leave overnight in the fridge in a covered container.

Next day, rinse all fish off and dry with a clean towel. Leave on counter til pellicle forms.

Smoke the fish for 3 hours using hickory at 150 degrees.
