A wok with a lid makes a great instant smoker. It must be well sealed to keep smoke from escaping and used over low heat. Fish and shellfish are perfect for instant smoking. Serve hot or cold with salad and horseradish sauce.


Hot smoking wok tips

The wok needs to be well sealed to prevent too much smoke escaping (a foil collar pressed around the edge of the lid usually prevents this).

The wok is best used over low heat on the stove, or outside on a grill. Keep separate woks for smoking.

A wok with a clear lid enables you to see the food cooking so that you can control the cooking and smoke levels more accurately: keep the lid firmly closed during cooking and turn the heat slightly up or down to control the amount of smoke.
