Smoked Fish with Tea
Preparation time
Cooking time
Total time
A very easy way to add a smoky flavour to fish. You'll need a baking tin - we used the one we'd roast potatoes in; tin foil, a rack. Simply pan fry or grill the fish for a few minutes to complete the dish. Serve with vegetables and a light sauce. The size of the fish portion will depend on your appetite
Recipe type: Main course
Cuisine: British
Serves: 2
  • One portion of fish per person. Choose a white fish such as mullet, cod, hake
  • 50 gr Any type of ice for strewing in the pan
  • 1 tablespoon of tea - we used lapsang souchong
  1. We covered the bottom of the tin with foil
  2. Add the rice. This stops stops the tea burning. Add the tea evenly on top
  3. Place the fish on a rack that fits into the pan. Cover with foil
  4. Place on a very low gas for 10 minutes.
  5. After 10 minutes remove from the heat. The fish will be sufficiently smoked.
  6. Cook the fish for a few minutes in a pan or on the grill. Serve.
