Smoked trout?

7 posts in this topic

This message concerns some smoked trout I've got in the fridge. I forgot a pack in crisper for over a month and has got a little moisture in it. The fish still appears fine & no smell. What's the shelf life on some that's just zip-locked smoked trout?

may sound a bit strange, but if there's no smell difference, i'll usually just saute the smoked fish quickly to be on the safe side..... just throw some olive oil in a pan, break the trout up a little bit and saute it on high for a minute or so per side..... that way, at least you know there won't be any issues and it's still mighty tasty..... we always bring back too much when we head up to the north shore and i've done this quite a few times with good results to this point.....

I would get rid of it just to be on the safe side.

if there's no taste issues, it's not gonna make you sick if you cook it-- kills anything that could potentially be wrong w/ it..... if it's gone bad, the taste and/or consistency will be off..... then throw it away....

Is it cold or hot smoked trout? Hot smoked fish only has a shelf life of days to a week or two refrigerated not vaccuum sealed. Cold smoked can last a couple months which is always done commercially.

Yeah, it was cold. I ate some last night, wasn't bad at all. Still have a couple I'll hit later tonight. Thanx all!

I've eaten my own hot smoked trout after 3 or 4 weeks in the fridge... just use your best judgement on how it looks/smells. Glad to hear you ate some and didn't spend the night on the toilet smile

    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
