With it being Super Bowl weekend and a number of you Nebraska anglers with rainbow trout in your freezers, I thought no better time than now to pass along once again a super-tasty smoked trout recipe to make for your Super Bowl party!
This is one of the easiest recipes to complete for smoked trout whether at home or in the cabin, no smoker needed! It comes to us from Jo Momsen whom I work with at our NE Game and Parks Omaha Office. If you know Jo, she can cook! Give Jo’s recipe a whirl for your football festivities, you and your guests will love it!
Super Smoked Trout
3 or more whole trout
1 cup Morton’s Tender Quick
8 tsp. Liquid Smoke
½ cup ice cream salt (for a bit saltier taste)
1 gallon water
Mix above ingredients. Soak and refrigerate fish 12-24 hours. Drain fish and bake on a greased cookie sheet for 4 hours at 200ºF. Turn once after 2 hours. Serve as a meal or as an appetizer with unsalted crackers. To keep: wrap tightly in freezer paper and freeze.
