Homemade Smoked Tilapia
5.0

The best thing about fresh tilapia is its mild flavor that doesn’t need the help of much added seasoning. A little salt, a dash of pepper, and a sprinkling of paprika are all you need to make tilapia fillets come to life.

Ingredients
4-5
tilapia filets
2
tablespoons melted butter
2
tablespoons salt
1
tablespoon pepper
Directions
1
Brush melted butter over tilapia fillets. Sprinkle with paprika, salt, and pepper.
2
Preheat smoker to 200 degrees F and add wood chips. Smoke fish for about an hour or until the internal temperature reaches about 160 degrees F.
Hot Tip: Tilapia has very little natural fat, so be sure to use a mild-flavored ingredient like olive oil or butter to help the fish stay moist while smoking. Once finished cooking, Tilapia should have a nice flaky texture and be a bright white color.
