The Best Ingredients for… Smoking

Traditionally, only hand-reared meat and fish caught fresh from the wild were smoked. Today, a wider range of foods can be smoked, but the golden rule remains: buy the best quality you can.


Shrimp or prawns

Choose shrimp carefully and avoid any that smell fishy. Avoid intensively farmed tiger shrimp and select organically farmed or sustainably caught cold water shrimp.


Fish

A wide range of fish are delicious smoked in a domestic smoker or a wok. Oak is the traditional wood used to smoke fish, but experiment with other light-flavored wood chips. Avoid intensively farmed fish.


Mussels

Inexpensive and in plentiful supply, with sweet flesh and juices, mussels are delicious smoked. Choose local seasonal wild or farmed (rope-grown).


Peppers

Smoking adds an interesting flavor to bell peppers (and chile peppers), but don’t smoke them for long because they may acquire a slightly bitter tang.


Potatoes

Freshly cooked potatoes, peeled and sliced, are good to smoke with whichever meat or fish you are smoking, or on their own. Smoke lightly for a short time.


Garlic

Smoked garlic is very popular (and can be made into a tasty garlic butter). New season’s dried garlic is best; choose fat cloves.


Pheasant

Smoking enriches the natural taste of all game, and pheasant is ideal to use. Smoke whole birds and finish by cooking in the oven, or smoke individual breasts with the skin on.


Eggs

The humble hard-boiled egg is transformed by smoking. Buy the best eggs you can. Pickled smoked eggs are extra good, too.


Chicken

Good-quality chicken breasts have firm flesh and maximum flavor. Chicken is an ideal meat to smoke; keep the skin on for added succulence. A whole chicken can be smoked then oven-cooked.
