SeaFood ?
« on: January 11, 2009, 03:58:56 PM »
Has anyone done seafood in their smoker at all?

If so what, how, and what were the results?

Mrs. Commonsense wants to know.

Salmon, trout, tuna, yellow tail, bass, crappie, oysters, shrimp, scallops, crab legs just to name a few.

Results are great or good depending on what you are looking for.  There are many ways to cook all of the above, cold or hot smoked depending on the finish you want.

Check under the Fish section........if it can be smoked you have a 99.9999999999999999% chance that it's been tried in the Bradley.  I never say never  ;D

Hi commonsense, I am kind of an equal opportunity smoker like Gizmo and have access to the fresh stuff so experiment on a regular basis.  Salmon, halibut, rockfish, scallops, shrimp, crab, trout it is all good.  I have the opportunity to eat a lot of salmon and can honestly say some of the best salmon I have ever had was a sockeye fillet done in the Bradley.  Smoke flavoring or actual smoking all are fairly easy with the Bradley.  If you look around the forum a bit there are some good recipes or starting places along with the recipe book that came with the Bradley.  I tend to tweak things to fit my own idea of what tastes good but the recipes and knowledge in the forum are a great place to start.

In addition to mussels (thanks for the compliment Habs  :)) I would add cod, haddock, pollack, whiting, bass, salmon, trout, prawns, crab, mackeral, herring, king and queen scallops. Also smoked fish (e.g. cod / whiting) roe is superb in the BS.

As others have said check out the fish section here or the link to the recipe site for a whole host more recipes. If you still have any specific questions just post them here and there are plenty of "fishy" people who can answer your queries.  ;) :D

Now that sounds like something that I could really sink my teeth into.  We don't get much of an opportunity to get soft shell up here in the North..., but I will go out of my way when traveling South to find those delicious little crustaceons.

Hey josbocc...where are you from? (my apologies if you have posted it before) but...soft shells are from the Northeast...maybe you are way north of that?

You're pulling my chain Giggles...yes...in theory they are blues...captured just before molting...put in cages until they molt. Really exspensive out here...less in my home state but...shipping them here is stupid (would cost the same) so...we do them for special occasions...I tend to be a purist with soft shells...a little cold smoke...a little flour...a little garlic...a little olive oil...just a nice quick saute...(deep fry to me...IS ALL WRONG)...but what do I know...  ::)

I've done lots of all the sub species of salmon, both hot and cold smoked. I've done some tuna,smelt, tried halibut once or twice. I do smoked oysters quite often, paired with a good IPA. Here's a pic of one of my favourite meals. These ones were actually grilled in the shell and not smoked, but you get the idea!

 

Cheers,
