Smoked Halibut
« on: June 30, 2012, 11:29:48 am »
I've read all the recipes for smoked Halibut and have modified them for our taste mainly because we don't like salty food. This recipe will provide you with the best halibut and maybe the best fish you've ever had.

Soaked 2 6oz pieces of halibut for 1 hour in plastic bag containing;
1 ¾ cup of water
1 Tablespoon of kosher salt
1 Teaspoon of brown sugar
1 Twig of fresh dill

Preheated smoker to 220

Made little aluminum trays 1 for each piece and placed a little butter and some dill under each piece of fish

Coated the fish with;
Fresh lemon juice
Butter
Garlic and dill

Placed in smoker for 1 hour of alder smoke at 220 on bottom rack and basted every 15 min.

Let me know how you liked it. I was surprised how moist and tender it was.

Halibut turned out great.  I cooked it in the smoker with one hour of smoke.  Tasted great and easy to make.  I'm looking forward to leftovers.
