smoked tailor with vegetables

Recommended Posts


3 tailor filleted, skin and scales on

4 medium potatoes thick sliced


carrots x 3

1 whole garlic



Use ice slurry on boat as brine by adding fillets and then a handful of sugar over fillets. Leave 4+ hours.

slice potatoes thickly, add to oven bag with smashed garlic, dried herbs and seasoning. Place in oven and cook.

while potatoes cooking, remove fillets, pat dry paper towel then leave covers in fridge for one hour+.

after potatoes are cooked, remove, add fillets and smoke until cooked (time depends on heat but 200degrees will take about 9 minutes). Use indirect heat.

while fish is cooking add broccolini and carrots to direct heat.

serve hot and enjoy!!

@Houdini nice 👍.


If your colleague HS a gas burner BBQ with a hood where he can turn some of the elements off it might be cheaper and easier to use that instead. Just need some untreated smoking wood chips that's it.
