Florida Keys Amberjack and Mackerel Make SUPERB Smoked Fish!
If you are a connoisseur of smoked fish, then you will absolutely love the delicate, never-fishy flavor of the Florida Keys amberjack, kingfish, cero and Spanish mackerel that comes from my Bradley smoker!
It makes the BEST base for the world-famous SeaSquared Smoked Fish Dip!
I have been a fan of smoked cheeses, smoked meats and smoked fish since I started hanging out with the elders at my hunting club back at the Jersey Shore. Those good ‘ol boys really know their way around a smoker!
For our first Christmas in Marathon Florida Keys, Christy bought me a Bradley electric smoker and there was no stopping me from that point on! I now have two smokers to handle your fish smoking needs.
Depending on the fish I’m smoking, I use various flavor bisquettes. Maple and mesquite are my favorites. At Christmas time, there’s nothing like a little Jim Beam to light your fire!
From November through February or March, when the mackerel are bountiful, I enjoy smoking fish for our customers. I vacuum seal the smoked fillets in our professional grade FoodSaver and mail the packages via USPS Flat Rate Priority Mail.
We recently tried a new twist to our smoked fish using a Cracked Pepper, Garlic and Herb Rub before the smoking process. The result … YUM!
Here’s how the pricing works:
- Smoke and Package Your Fish Caught with SeaSquared …… $5 per pound of wet filleted fish
- USPS Flat Rate Priority Mail …… Varies from $12.35 to $16.85, depending on the size of the box required
