Fish is a popular low-fat, healthy meal. There are countless ways to prepare fish, but one popular choice is to smoke it. Smoked fish is a particularly good choice during the summer months. Smoking has long been used as a means of preserving meat and fish. It also adds a rich, unique flavour. Recommended fish for smoking are salmon, trout, whitefish, sole, bream, eel, herring and trout, but any type of fish or meat can be smoked. There are a variety of kits and methods available to smoke fish at home including: Jiffy Smoke, Steam-N-Chips and Uncle Abe's Smoked Fish Kit.

Jiffy Smoke

Jiffy Smoke is a simple kit used in combination with an outdoor grill. The kit consists of a disposable aluminium box containing 40 cubic inches of wood chips. These small smoking kits are available with North Atlantic olive wood or southeast hickory. Chips are 100% organic wood. To use Jiffy Smoke, remove the container from the packaging, and place it on a hot grill. Once the chips begin to smoke, place fish on the grill and cook thoroughly. Jiffy Smoke works best if the grill lid is closed. Follow the Jiffy Smoke link in the references section of this article for more information.

The Steam-N-Chips kit turns an ordinary gas grill into a Finnish-style smoker. You can choose the stainless steel or enamelled porcelain model. Attach the kit to a Weber gas grill, add wood chips and water and use to smoke all kinds of fish without much fuss. Check the link in the references section of this article for more information.
