I was just curious if anyone out there has tried making fish jerky in a dehydrator...as I do not have a smoker. Im a stealhead fisherman this time of year. I practice catch and release but sometimes one comes home with me. I usually get them smoked but want to try something new. Its kinda hard to put them in the freezer when I already have it packed with walleye...Im sure you guys can understand that. Any suggestions?

I have made it but do not use a dehydrator, I use a smoker...

Better then the dehydrator, use your oven.. set the temp control at 200 and crack the door and then keep an eye on the fish!

Place a pan under the fillets or strips to catch the drippings so you do not create a mess!

An old friend of mine lived in Alaska and used to get this snack stick/jerky type of snack made from Salmon. He said it was the best thing he'd ever eaten. I can't for the life of me remember what he called it in order to look up a recipe on Google. I'd imagine Steelhead would work just as well as Salmon. He described it as a sweet/sour kind of jerky that used to be made by the Natives to preserve the Salmon.
