Smoked Fish in Soy Sauce and Wine Brine


1 Fillet of Fish
1/3 cup Sugar
1/4 cup Non-iodized salt
2 cup Soy sauce
1 cup Water
1/2 tsp. Onion powder
1/2 tsp. Garlic powder
1/2 tsp. Pepper
1/2 tsp. Tabasco sauce
1 cup Dry white wine

Mix the above brine ingredients well, ensuring that all dry ingredients are well dissolved. Soak the fish in the brine for 8 or more hours, keeping all pieces covered with brine and refrigerated. Smoke in your favorite smoker over Hickory, Alder, or a mix of 2/3 Apple and 1/3 Cherry wood. Smoking times will depend on the thickness of the fish and the type of smoker you are using. Place largest and thickest pieces closest to the heat/smoke source.
