Believe it or not, not all smoked fish recipes are
created in a smoker. All you really need is a oven
that can hold low temperatures and a bottle of
liquid smoke. And if you think liquid smoke is a
cheap substitute, think again. Liquid smoke is made
from actual smoke particles that are condensed and
liquefied. And, the liquid smoke can come from
many different types of wood. Giving you those
flavors you crave, like hickory, mesquite, or apple.
My new smoked fish recipe is a result of my fishing
buddies having fresh caught yellowtail and not yet
owning a smoker. And since my tuna jerky recipe is
getting a great response, I figured why not introduce
everyone to the simplicity of using liquid smoke. So
if you don't own a smoker yet, wait no more and give
this recipe a try!

Smoked Fish Without A Smoker
1 pound of yellowtail cut into 1/4-in thick medallions
2 cups of soy sauce
2 tablespoons of molasses
2 teaspoons of liquid smoke
½ cup of red chili flakes
Making the Smoked Fish Yellowtail Jerky
1. Prepare the brine by adding the soy sauce, molasses,
and chili flakes into a microwave-safe mixing bowl. And then, microwave the brine for 1-2 minutes. Whisk vigorously and then allow to cool in the refrigerator for 5-10 minutes.
2. Once cooled, add the liquid smoke. Now, place your cut fillets into a shallow dish and then pour the brine on top. Make sure to cover all the cut fillets. Allow the yellowtail to marinade in the brine for 1/2 hour.
3. Preheat your oven at 200F.
4. Bake the yellowtail at 200F for 3 hours. Enjoy!
