Is it ok to eat fish that is smoked and ready to eat?

I don't know much about the smoking process and if they add any avoids to the fish.

There are so many of my compliant fishes that come smoked....sure would make life a little easier!

we have an all natural smoke house in our area....I think the fish is coated with a sugar solution of
some kind but just simply wood smoked...no preservatives/additives added.  I can
find naturally smoked fish in our health food store.  Also Trader Joe's has some naturally smoked
fish.  You have to read package labels.

This brand is sold in my health food store.

I like this company for smoked salmon and all wild salmon -- only problem is that shipping costs are high

I was under the impression that smoked foods contain carcinogens.

My aunt and uncle live in Alaska and smoke their own salmon.  All you have to do is put it in sugar solution and place it in the smokehouse.  As long as the ingredients don't list any avoids it should be ok - I didn't read the thing about carcinogens and smoking meat, though

The fish I was looking at is done locally and the ingredients say water and salt.

After reading this blog post, my conclusion is to say away from smoked foods.....

I used to eat smoked sardines because they are more common than unsmoked, and the smoke cuts the fishy flavor down a bit.  But, I concluded that the health effects are risky and I put out the extra effort to find sardines that are unsmoked and also taste good to me.

I see smoked fish as an occasional treat, to enjoy when I'm otherwise in good health. I figure the smoking process turns a beneficial fish into a "black dot" and it's not something I'll eat on a regular basis. But I might have a few pieces (hors d'ouvres size)  at a social gathering when I'd otherwise be drinking seltzer and eating nothing.

I don't see anything wrong with smoked fish so long as there are no avoid additives. I buy smoked salmon and carefully check the ingredients and use it occasionally as a bacon substitute in a zucchini quiche recipe and it is lovely.

I consider smoked fish (as long as the fish itself is compliant) to be a black dot. I've not seen any smoked fish around here that doesn't include sugar, which I'm avoiding (except for my b-day wknd, which is now over, thankfully).


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

Depends on where you live actually. I can find lots of unsmoked but no smoked.

Must say that smoked Salmon is tasty though I do not indulge. Have to get canned Salmon as the fresh wild is a rare treat.

As soon as I typed that the smoked was more common, I realized that this is an international forum and different parts of the world have different foods commonly available!    Thanks for that reminder!

It's a good thing canned salmon is available.  It's a good way to get hold of the wild salmon.

Where I live it is generally the only way although I can get fresh wild Salmon once in a while.

Mostly I get US Alaska though I came across some Canada recently so that is the best I can do.

Me too! The fish near me has no added avoids.....it's what happens to the fish during the smoking process that makes the fish and avoid

Marinading fish or any meat in an acidic solution breaks down carcinogens that form during the smoking process.
