How do you know when smoked fish is done?
Basically, your eyes and a good thermometer will tell you when the fish is done. The fillets should have a nice glaze to them and be dry to the touch. In my experience, a batch usually takes around 3 to 6 hours to complete.
How fast can you smoke fish?
Fast Direct Hot Smoking (Wok or Portable Smoker)
If the fillets are thin or they are small fish, it can take 6-8 minutes. For thicker fillets of salmon, hake or monkfish – this could take 15 minutes. Making sure the temperature is low after the smoking as start is really important.
