    Default Cold smoked dehydrated Sardines

    Marinated, cold smoked, dehydrated sardine fillets.
    Hmmm, nothing greater with a beer.

    I marinated the fillets for 15 hours in
    1 liter water
    100g salt
    95g sugar
    1 tsp celery salt
    1 tsp caraway seed (new this year)

    They were then rinsed and cold smoked with Oak and sweet Acacia for 3 hours 20 minutes min temp : 79F, maxi : 104F, ave : 89F).

    Dried for 31 hours at an average of 86F. After about 10 hours, I separated the fillets along the back and peeled off the skin.

    In the marinade :


    Next day, ready for smoking:


    In the cold smoker :


    After dehydrating :


    A plate of dried sardines :


    Another view :


    10 vacuum packed packages of smoked sardines (the things in the 2 packages on the bottom will be described in another thread):


    I didn't think that last photo was clear enough so here is another on a white background:


    Now all I need is an interesting sporting event on TV and a cold beer !

    Thanks for looking.

    I have not tasted them yet so I'm not sure if the caraway was a good idea or not.

    To give you an idea, close to 50 years ago, on a visit to the US, I tasted, in a bar, something called a "Blind Robin" which, I think was a smoked, dried herring. It is the taste that I have tried to duplicate. Without the caraway, it is pretty close.

    Smoked fish eats good. Never tried sardines, but I WOULD.
