12/15/08 - Smoked Steelhead

Did we mention that Tuna Dan has been selling steelhead, along with albacore tuna, at the Port Angeles Farmers' Market? We recently smoked up a fresh batch of steelhead in our kettle grill. Since we knew we were going to eat the whole thing with in a day or two, we didn't bother with the full dose of salt and smoke. We just rubbed three pounds of steelhead with a tablespoon of salt, a tablespoon of peppercorns (lightly crushed), two tablespoons of coriander seeds (lightly crushed) and four tablespoons of brown sugar and let them stand in the refrigerator overnight. In the morning, we smoked them for maybe 45 minutes in a closed kettle grill.

The results? Did we mention that we've already eaten all three pounds of fish? Yeah, they were that good.
