    Seafood deluxe

    I thought I'd treat myself today, I found some really nice Arctic Char in my store. It is like a trout, very nice fish.

    I stuffed it with lots of thyme and lemon, and dressed it with plenty of lemon and flaked salt. I used a string to hold it all together.

    After that I just placed it on my rec tec grill mat, and then on the grate. I smoked it at 300 deg F, until inner temp was 125 deg F.

    I usually make risotto when I serve fish, so I made an asparagus risotto to go with the char. Nice and creamy, with plenty of parmesan in it.

    Those rec tec mats, are those Frog Mats? I have some, they work great for smoking fish.

    So how much of that on the plate gets eaten, and digested, and absorbed??

      Yes, I believe they are known as frog mats. Really smart (and cheap), plus you can put them in the dishwasher. Regarding what to eat: I would calculate 1 fish for 2 people. You remove the head, tail and skin. Or actually just leave it "on". The skin peels off super easily, so you just eat the meat until you hit the back bone, then either pull the whole backbone entirely off, and continue eating, or just flip the fish over. This works well with all fish. You could do the skinning and deboning beforehand, but I really like the "whole fish" presentation.


        Where I am from "presentation" goes out the window. We sometimes fried smaller catfish whole, after gutting/eviscerating, of course. I prefer filet's myself.


          Looks great Henrik! Very nice photos, and thanks for putting them in there BIG!
          I love risotto!

            Thanks! Yeah, I finally figured out how to work the attachments. The left hand button wouldn't allow pics bigger than 800px. Same thing when posting links, use the button in the "toolbar" instead, it is way easier.

          @DWCowles, use the attachment icon, upper right of every comment box, next to the "A", it looks like a clipboard with a paper clip. You can check out out picture posting tips here, which walks you through it.

          Thanks for asking!


            Ok, Thanks

            Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

            We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

            The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

            The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
