There is so much food to choose from when we go to the local market or supermarket and we really are spoilt for choice. However, we have tried most of the foods out there and it has come to a point where food starts to become a little boring and a little bit bland. There is one way to change the taste of food and that is by smoking it. Smoking the food changes the way that it cooks and has a great effect on the flavour as well. The smoking process helps to make the food a little more tender and that doesn’t happen when you are simply grilling it. Smoking the food means it takes longer to cook and so you have to pay good attention to the grill itself and the temperature.
One such food that is great to smoke is haddock as it is incredibly tasty and not only that, haddock contains no carbohydrates, which is great for anyone trying to lose weight or just watching their waistline. Smoked haddock is also great for your body as it contains essential nutrients and vitamins that help you to build strength in your bones and helps to regulate your heartbeat. It has selenium, iron and potassium which are all good for the heart and good for the whole body overall. Smoked haddock is also a great way to get your protein as a 100 gram serving will give you 19 grams of protein. Protein is great for gaining muscle and also keeps you fuller for longer.
Different wood chips can be added to give a distinct flavour to the food that you are smoking with popular chips like maple, cherry or apple being some of the tastiest ones. It is great to try them all and then decide which one adds the flavour to the food that you like. When you smoke your food, it is a great way to make it last longer and so this cuts down on food getting wasted due to power cuts or simply cooking too much for one sitting. There are many kinds of foods that can be smoked. Fish has already been mentioned, but meats, cheeses and vegetables can all be smoked as well.
Nutritional and Low Fat
There are many benefits to eating smoked foods like the nutrients that they have and their low fat content. Smoking is also a fat free way of cooking and so is perfect for those who choose a healthier diet. There is no need to apply any additional extra fats to your food and there is no need for special sauces or any preparation. Smoking food brings a flavour that you will have never experienced before and you will want to eat it all the time. However, like everything in life, moderation is the key and so you should enjoy your smoked food occasionally which means you will look forward to the next time.
Smoking food is incredibly popular now and you can smoke almost any kind of food. Why don’t you try some smoked haddock today and find out just what you are missing out on.
