Uncle Ed’s Smoked Trout

Looking for a good way to prepare the trout you recently caught? Be sure to try uncle Ed’s smoked trout recipe.

For every two pounds of fish:
1 quart of water
1 cup of salt
1 cup of brown sugar
3 tablespoons of lemon juice
2 tablespoons of minced garlic
2 tablespoons of black pepper

Mix ingredients in large glass bowl or a Ziploc bag. Let fish marinate for at least one hour. Grill or smoke fish. Grilled fish should be cooked for approx 10-12 minutes a side on low-medium heat (it is done when it’s easily flaked apart). Smoked fish should be cooked at 175-190 degrees for about 2 hours. Fish grilled or smoked with the skin on needs roughly 20% more cooking time. As with all fish, thickness of the filets may dictate longer/shorter cooking times.

Very simple recipe to use for trout. I’ve never used this for any other type of fish, though Uncle Ed says it is great with salmon, or any other red-flesh fish.


About the Author I am avid angler who recently entered the addiction of kayak fishing. I am a big fan of catch & release fishing, but a couple of times a year, I bring some filets home. I have had a diverse work career - college & high school football coach, high school math teacher, computer programmer, and pharmacy operations/technology manager. I love to spend time with family/wife/kids, fish, hunt upland birds, follow sports, read, cook, etc. Have a lot of interests but am not that interesting.
