Applewood-smoked plaice and prawns

 

plaice and prawns uncooked

Ingredients

4 plaice fillets

250g of raw prawns

4 cloves of garlic, crushed and finely chopped

1 lemon, thinly sliced

3 tbs of lemon juice

Salt and ground black pepper

Preparation

Chop and crush the garlic and mash with one tablespoon of lemon juice.  Pour over the uncooked prawns and hour before cooking and leave covered in the fridge. Place 2 tbs of applewood chips in the base of your over top smoker (I use a Camerons smoker and place drip tray on top. cover drip tray with foil (saves on washing-up later). Put the grill grid on top of the foil, brush it with oil to prevent the fish sticking and arrange the plaice fillets on top.  Sprinkle the fish with the remaining lemon juice, salt and pepper and place lemon slice on the fillets.  Put smoker on cooker ring at medium heat and cook for 20 minutes. Remove the plaice fillets and grill the skin side for 5 minutes under a hot grill skin side up, to crisp the skin. Return the fish to the smoker and put the prawns and garlic on top and smoke for ten more minutes.
