Tangerine Hoisin Smoked Tilapia

Tangerine and Hoisin Smoked Tilapia

Tilapia is not one of the most flavourful fish on the market. Therefore, it asks for a spicy marinade.

Combine Hoisin Sauce and tangerine and you’ll add layers of flavour to this recipe. You may use orange juice to substitute the tangerines.


1 Cup tangerine juice (orange juice also works fine)

½ Cup Hoisin sauce

1 Tbsp Sriracha sauce

2 Tsp salt

4 Tilapia fillets

Bradley Flavor Bisquettes – Alder, Apple, or Pacific Blend


Make the marinade by mixing together the tangerine juice, hoisin sauce, Sriracha, and salt until the hoisin is dissolved and well blended.

In a large bowl, cover the Tilapia fillets in the marinade. Turn the fish so they are completely coated. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for about 2 hours.

Set the smoker to 275°F, using Bradley Flavor Bisquettes of choice (Alder, Apple, and Pacific Blend all work well).

Remove the Tilapia fillets from the marinade and place them on a smoker rack and put the rack in the Bradley Smoker. Smoke the fish until they reach an internal temperature of 145°F (or about 2 hours).
