Smoking whitefish

I smoke a lot of salmon and glaze it with grade B maple syrup. On Wednesday I am smoking a load of whitefish from the Beaver Island, MI waters. I was thinking about glazing it with Limoncello. Anyone have a better (or different) idea?

    I have a bottle of Pannini Limoncello and ,IMHO, it is too tart for a delicate fish. Lemon juice and dill is OK. Maple is always great and nice and sweet. When you get done smoking, this appetizer is great with many types of fish,

    Appetizer, Fish, Smoked, Pate

    1 Lb. Fish, Smoked
    1 8- Ozs. Cream Cheese
    1 Tbs. Lemon Juice
    ½ Cup Pecans, Chopped
    ¼ Cup Parsley, Chopped
    2 Tsp. Grated Onions
    1 Tsp. Horseradish
    ¼ Tsp. Salt

    1 Remove skin and bone from fish. Soften cream cheese. Combine cheese, lemon juice, onion, horseradish, salt and fish. Mix thoroughly, chill..Combine pecans and parsley.
    2 Shape chilled cheese into log or ball. Sprinkle with pecans and parsley. Serve with crackers.

    Sauce, Glaze, Mustard, Ham Steaks

    4 each boneless ham steaks
    5 Tbs brown sugar
    1 Tbs dry mustard
    1 tsp onion salt
    2 tsp soy sauce
    2 tsp lemon juice
    1 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
    1 can pineapple slices, (8 oz)

    1 Combine brown sugar, dry mustard, onion salt, soy sauce and lemon juice, mixing well. Simmer sauce five minutes, stirring occasionally.
    2 Place ham steaks on grill three to four inches above medium coals. Cook 30 minutes, turning steaks every five minutes and brushing with sauce. Serve steaks with a sauce. Garnish with heated pineapple slices, if desired.

    That looks good. My pâté recipe is a little different. I'm using about 8 pounds of what I'm smoking for pâté.
