Mahi Mahi, Smoked

For everything there is a season. Turns out, Mrs 40 C has gone to the lake house for a weekend with her girlfriends leaving me alone. Time to smoke some fish. Been wanting some since the Chief posted this thread...http://www.discusscooking.com/forums...ked-85785.html

Started 3 pounds of Mahi Mahi soaking in a brine of 1 1/2 cup salt, 1 1/2 cup sugar, and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice combined with 2 quarts of water.

I'll put them on Joe to smoke over alder in about 4 hours.

.40

Are you sure 3 pounds will be enough for all of us?

Sounds wonderful. Every kind of fish I have ever eaten smoked was good. I really dislike freshwater fish, but smoked they are yummy.

Sounds good .40...what Mrs. doesn't care for fish? I sympathize, Shrek is not a fish eater, either...unless it's fish sticks.

Ah...it's your fault I bought all that fish at Costco, your thread put the idea in my head.

Wild Sockeye Salmon and Wild Rockfish. Either of which would be fantastic smoked.

Flaky and delicious. Salty from the brine. Kind of like fish bacon.

If I made fish tacos with these, I will have thought I died and gone to Cabo !

Edit. I see on another thread PF is doing just that.
