Smoked tilapia sandwich

Smoked Buffalo Tilapia Salad Sandwiches Recipe

Delicious sandwich recipe! Perfect for a quick snack, because fish takes less than two hours to smoke.


1 Cup Louisiana hot sauce (like Frank’s or other brand)

3 Tilapia fillets

1 Red pepper - cored and diced

6 Green onions - thinly sliced

1½ Cups Miracle Whip

2 Tbsp Louisiana hot sauce

8 Slices bread

Lettuce or other toppings for the sandwiches


In a large bowl, cover the tilapia fillets in the 1 cup hot sauce. 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 275ºF using wood bisquettes of choice (Alder, Pacific, Apple).

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 145ºF, about 2 hours. Let the fish cool in the fridge.

Crumble the fish fillets in a medium sized bowl. Stir in the diced red pepper, sliced green onions, Miracle Whip, and remaining 2 tablespoons of hot sauce, until well combined.

Spread some of the tilapia salad mixture on a bread slice. Top with lettuce or other toppings, and place another bread slice on top. Do this with the remaining bread slices.
