Cured & Smoked Fish

Cured & Smoked Fish

Grilling Time: 3-5 Hours

Prep Time: 1-5 Days

Additional Information/Details:

  • Northern, Carp, or Bass
  • Dakota Grills Sweet Meat Cure™ (use 3/4 teaspoon per pound)
  1. Fillet your fish, leaving the skin on. Sprinkle meaty side with DakotaGrills Sweet Meat Cure™ (use ¾ teaspoon per pound), then chill for 1-5 days in plastic container.
  2. Season to taste with Dakota Grills Country™ Seasoning, Dakota Grills Sizzlin' Steak™ Seasoning, and McCormick's Hot Shots Seasoning (for a bit of a kick, if desired).
  3. Smoke skin side down @ 300°F for 35-60 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish (or set your probe temperature for 140°F). Hickory or Maple wood chips are good.
  4. After smoking, remove the skin and red line down center of fillet (especially on carp & silver bass - causes "fishy" taste).
  5. Season that side. Add more wood chips if desired.
  6. Finally, grill the fish at 250-300°F for 1-3 hours more to dry the fish to desired consistency. Cool.
  7. Individually wrap fillets in plastic and put in Ziplock bags (or vacuumseal), label & date, and put into the freezer.
  8. Thaw and use for snacks anytime.
