I'm sure you can sub other fish here; the main thing is the basic technique. If you're a fan of smoky flavors like I am, you will enjoy this. Since I live in an apartment, I can't have a real outdoor smoker, so this recipe gives me a tasty "fix". Instead of the chile, you can use wood shavings; the zaar format wouldn't allow me to list this in the ingredients. Use 1 tablespoon.
