Lemon Fire Tuna Jerky
Fish jerky is supposed to be sweet....salty....savory...., but spicy?! Hell yeah it can be spicy! This Lemon Fire Tuna Jerky packs some surprisingly tongue numbing flavor.
- 3/4 cup beef broth
- 1/3 cup hot sauce Texas Pete
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 2 tsp lemon pepper
- 1/4 tsp curing salt optional
With a sharp knife, slice strips with the grain 1/4" thick
Assemble all the ingredients of marinade in a bowl or ziplock bag and mix well.
Add the tuna strips to the marinade and marinate for 6-24 hours in the refrigerator. Mix the strips several times during marinating for evenly coated strips. Be Gentle when mixing!
Strain jerky strips in a colander and then dry with paper towels to remove any excess marinade.
Place strips on a dehydrator tray or oven cooling rack on top of a oven pan to catch any drippings.
Dry at 130F if using a dehydrator or as low as your oven will go if using an oven.
Jerky will be done when it is completely dry and to your texture liking. It took me 3 1/2 hours to dry this jerky in my Nesco Dehydrator
