How to Smoke Fish at Home



How to Smoke Haddock

Smoking meats is a time-tested way to preserve meats and add a delicious flavor, and for those who live far from the coasts, one of the few way to get quality fish. Haddock, a cold-salt water fish, is gathered year round and is easily smoked.

Ingredients

  • 1400ml (about 6 cups) salt
  • 500ml (about 2 cups) sugar
  • 1 whole haddock
  • Plastic wrap
  • Spice (optional)

Steps

  1. Cure it first.There are two different approaches to this, depending on whether you want to do a dry cure or a wet cure:
    • Dry Curing:Mix 700ml (about 3 cups) of salt and 250 (about 1 cup) of sugar. Add other flavourings, such as garlic, chives, pepper, et cetera, if desired. Rub the mixture over the entire fish thoroughly.
      • Wrap the fish tightly in plastic wrap, put the fish on a plate, and refrigerate for 18 - 24 hours. Drain off any liquid that pools over this time.
    • Wet curing:Mix 700ml (about 3 cups) of salt and 250 (about 1 cup) of sugar with 4.5 litres of water (about a gallon) in a large pot. Add other flavourings, such as garlic, chives, pepper, et cetera, if desired.
      • Keep the fish in the plastic wrapping and place the fish into the pot, cover, and refrigerate for 6 - 24 hours. A longer brining time will create a stronger flavour and a longer-lasting fish.
  2. Clean the fish.Remove the fish and all wrapping and run the fish under cool water until completely clean.
  3. Let it dry.Place the fish in a cool, breezy place to dry. If your smoker is available, drying the fish in the racks will save you time later. After 2 - 3 hours, a shiny film, called a pellicle, forms over the fish. This will keep the juices in, so try to not to damage it.
  4. Smoke the fish.Place the fish in a smoker at 30 degrees centigrade (about 90 degrees   Fahrenheit) for 2 hours.
  5. Smoke again.Now smoke the fish at an increased temperature of 65 degrees centigrade (about 150 degrees Fahrenheit) for 6 hours per 2.5 centimeters (about 1 inch) of thickness.
  6. Test the fish for doneness by inserting a fork into its side.If it flakes easily, you`re done!
  7. Enjoy the fish.At room temperature (about 16 degrees centigrade or 60 degrees Fahrenheit), smoked haddock will remain safe-to-eat for 4 - 6 days. Refrigerated, smoked haddock will remain safe-to-eat for 8 - 10 days. See Cook Smoked Haddock for great recipes!
