You need to eat fish if you own a BBQ. If you don’t try it then i would rather have you sell that BBQ because you are missing out on one of the tastiest things known to mankind.I will show you step by step how you can get the perfect smoked Helibut Fish on your own BBQ at home.
- 5000 gram halibut
- 5 tbsp Pitmasterx's Classic BBQ Rub
- 10 red chili's
- 2 bulbs of garlic
- 1 red onion
- 1 thumb sized block of ginger
- 500 ml sunflower oil
- 750 ml sunflower oil
- 3 tbsp flour
- 3 tbsp Pitmasterx's Classic BBQ Rub
Preparing the Halibut
- Take a sharp and thin knife and take off the skin from the halibut (If the head is still attached, you can choose to leave it on or take it off. Either way, don't throw it out! It's an amazing base for a good fish stock). Optionally, you can take the fins off as well.
- Season the meat with our Pitmaster X classic BBQ rub.
- Prepare your smoker by setting it to a temperature of 120C/248F.
- Pierce the tail or head of the fish with some strong meat or fish hooks and hang the fish in your smoker.
- Finely chop your chili's, garlic, onions and ginger. Add this to a strong heat resistant bowl.
- Add the salt, and then cover it with half a liter of boiling sunflower oil. (Be very careful with this step!)
- Let the oil fry the contents of the bowl and set it aside for later use.
- Add your shrimps to a bowl and add some flour to them. Give it a gentle stir to cover all of them. Be careful, Dutch shrimp are very delicate 😉
- Then add a handful of the Pitmaster X classic BBQ rub. Give it another mix until everything is evenly coated.
- Set up a wok or another deep pan for frying with some frying oil.
- Gently lay in the shrimp and fry them until they achieve a nice golden brown colour. This will only take about 30 seconds.
- Place them on a paper towel or cooling rack so the shrimp can loose any excess oils.
- Once the Halibut is done, slice off a filet and put it on a plate. Top it off with some of those delicious fried Dutch shrimp and that beautiful spicy chili oil. It doesn't get any better than this!
