Salmon candy (brown trout version)


Recommended Posts

I found this recipe online and gave it a shot. It is really good! The recipe was called salmon candy, but I made it with brown trout. The night before smoking, make the brine. I used equal parts brown sugar and salt. Put the fillets skin side up in the brine. I used a baking sheet. Then cover the skin side with the rest of the brine. Let brine fof 1 to 3 hours. I let the most recent batch brine for 1.5 hours and it was perfect. Take the fillets out and wash them with cold water. Place them in the fridge overnight so the pelicle forms. I used a little charcoal grill with charcoal on one side, and the fish on the other. I used pecan wood chips sprinkled over the coals to get the smoke. 1.5 to 2.5 hours at 225. While its smoking brush maple syrup every 15 mins over them. So simple and so good.
