5 Simple Steps to Smoking Fish without using a Smoker

Fish Preperaton | 19th September 2016 | By

Smoked fish in salad or paté is quite simply delicious and really easy to do at home without having to go out and buy a smoker.  Here’s a quick method to create your own smoked fish at home.

YOU WILL NEED:

  • A wide pot or pan with a lid that seals tightly
  • Tin foil
  • Wood chips or shavings
  • A wire rack to fit the base of the pot or pan

STEP 1:

Line your pan with tinfoil (shiny side up).

STEP 2:

Place your wood chips in the centre of the tinfoil.

STEP 3:

Place your wire rack on top of the wood shavings.

STEP 4:

Place your chosen fish fillets seasoned with salt and pepper on the wire rack (in the image I have used Angel Fish fillets).  Make sure the wood chips are not touching the fish.

STEP 5: 

Place the pan on a high heat.  It will take approximately 5 minutes for the wood chips to start smoking.  Once smoking allow the fish to smoke for a further 10 – 15 minutes (you may wish to turn the heat down to medium here).  The fish is done when it has turned a lovely golden colour.  You may need to smoke for a bit longer if the fillets are thick.

Remove from the pan and enjoy as is, in a salad or turn into a lovely paté!
