Fresh Fish is hard to come by in some land-locked states, but fortunately a friend went fishing recently and brought home some beautiful trout which they were kind enough to share with me. If you have a smoker (electric or traditional) give this recipe a try with your next fish.


Prep Time: 25 min    Cook Time: 2 hrs 15 min

Ingredients for Smoked Trout:

  • 2 Trout (heads removed or not–it’s up to you)
  • 1 Lemon
  • 1/4 stick of butter
  • Seasonings: Thyme, Oregano, Salt, Pepper

  1. Our Trout Fish was already gutted/cleaned; so that step isn’t included, but make sure your is as well.
  2. Melt your butter and pour it over your fish.
  3. Sprinkle the seasonings over the buttery fish.
  4. Delicately set some lemon slices on top.
  5. Place in the smoker at 160º for just over 2hrs or until the fish reaches an internal temperature of 145º and flakes easily with a fork.

Tips & Tricks:

  • The fish still has a ton of bones–so watch out!
  • If you cook it correctly, you should be able to pull the spine and the ribs out in one motion–but there may still be some tiny straggler bones.
  • You can also serve this over a bed of rice or with a nice salad
