Need Help--trying to stove-top smoke fish and having problems

anna | Dec 28, 2004 12:16 AM

I am having a dinner party on Thursday and planned on smoking trout on my stove-top smoker, but I went to buy fresh trout and the butcher said trout season is in March. I bought tilapia instead, but it did not turn out well. It was hard to tell if it was the wood chips I used or the marinade (equal parts salt, sugar, soy sauce and water).

My questions:

1-should I buy frozen trout and smoke it?

2-are there other fish in season that would be suitable? (I live in Nor Cal)

3-Is it just a bad idea to smoke tilapia?

4-I used alder wood, should I try cherry wood?

Thanks so much,
Anna
