Default Smoked Sea Trout Recipe

My son gave me some Sea Trout fillets from a recent trip and I would like to try smoking them on my Masterbuilt Electric Smoker.
Any good recipes out there? What wood is best?



Thanks in advance....

I use speckled trout to make smoked fish dip.
Season 10 fillets with Slap Ya Momma and spray with Pam or equal
Smoke heavy for 45 minutes at 300F or so
Mix with:
1 diced Granny Smith apple
1/2 to 3/4 diced red onion
1/4 cup sweet pickle relish
4 oz soften cream cheese
add BLUE PLATE mayonnaise to desired consistency (about 1/4 cup)
add seasoning as needed
Allow to marry for a few hrs
serve with tortillas or crackers

Look at the food and beverage section on THT. There are a lot of fish recipes. We smoke/ fry/ bake and broil trout.

We use whatever kind of fish we have on hand to make smoked fish dip in our Masterbuilt Electric smoker.

Sprinkle lemon pepper on fish. Put Trout in smoker for about 45 minutes on 225. Check it at about the 1/2 mark. Don’t let it dry out. Once cooked I
crumble it in a bowl. Add 1 chopped jalapeño, 1 seeded and chopped Roma tomato, chopped celery, and chopped green onion. Mix together then add mayonnaise to the consistency of your liking. You may want to add a little salt and pepper.

We use pecan or cherry wood.

I suppose you can smoke fresh grouper fillets but smoked fish doesn't smoke in 45 minutes.

Why would you.

As I said, sorry.

Keep enough fresh trout to eat before freezing. You want to eat good, try fresh specks and eggs in the morning.

Brown some bacon in the pan, stir in some small chunks of fish, chop some onions and green pepper brown lightly. Crack some eggs and scramble the entire mix and then some shredded cheese.

Fish and scrambled eggs Baby!

To each their own and by no means busting chops but certain fish require more respect than a smoker. And, there is no such thing as smoked fish done in 45 minutes at 225. That is smoke tasting fish!

Takes me many hours to smoke a mullet. They get what they deserve if not fresh out of the water to the fryer.

This fella ain’t lying and smoked mullet is what you want to use, not a Trout. I smoke the Roe too and I’ll be a Monkeys Uncle it won’t bad. Either way, you can smoke anything but thats a waste of a trout.

I like oily fish better than most people and I would never smoke even a king mackerel or a pompano. That would be a waste. Best leave the smoker to fish that are poorer tasting. Trout isn't one of those by far.

Ok I get it.
I got involved in the Auburn/Alabama game and ended up frying them. Salt and pepper and they were great!
From past experience I knew they would be......
