Hot Whiskey Smoked BBQ Salmon
Most people don’t bbq fish choosing instead to go with bbq meat packs from the supermarket or butcher or even using frozen burgers and sausages.
To me this is a real shame because a bbq can be used to cook so much more and better food that doesn’t really cost much more and sometimes even less.
In the video below I explain exactly how to cook a delicate piece of fish to perfection on the bbq. It is easy to follow and takes less than 10 minutes to view.
I use a process called “indirect heat” which mean the coals are to the sides of the fish and not underneath it. This means the fish cooks evenly and doesn’t dry out.
Please remember that this dish can also be done with a few portions of salmon rather than the large piece I used.
Feel free to experiment with other types of fish. Prawns in a garlic and chilli butter or on a skewer. Seabass fillets with lime, coriander and chili, Cod or Hake with a smokey tomato salsa, I could easily go on. I will post more and more fish recipes in the next month thanks to Sams Seafood in Athlone.
Topline Donated the BBQ and Lawlor Foods donated sundries like, tin foil, cling film, gloves etc. Please think of these companies when choosing where to shop, they offer excellent prices and great quality. They are all Irish companies who could do with our support.
You will need – 1 Charcoal bbq (I will post a pan and oven method soon), 1 fish chopping board, 1 sharp knife, tin foil and cling film. I also highly recommend you use a food thermometer.
