Spoonbill is a great tasting fish - as long as you clean it right. A fish under 65 pounds is the best tasting; smaller even better.

Ingredients:

  • paddlefish, 2" x 3" x 4" chunks or small fillets

Brine:

  • 2 gallons water
  • 2 cups kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

Instructions:


Brine fish for 36 hours.

Dry on a rack in the refrigerator overnight. Use cherry chips for the smoke (or applewood).

Smoke fillets for 4-1/2 hours at 175 to 200 degrees until internal temperature reaches 150 degrees.


It will take longer if you use larger pieces of fish.
