My dad’s been buying smoked fish dip for years, and, as you can probably guess, it’s usually an appetizer we serve at family gatherings. It’s such a big hit, he finally decided it was time to come up with his own recipe. After trying a number of methods, this is dad’s fish dip recipe.
Smoked Fish Dip Recipe
- 1 pound smoked whitefish
- 1 package cream cheese 8 ounces, softened
- 3 tablespoons heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
- 2 teaspoons onion grated
- ¼ teaspoon salt
Smoke fish on smoker grill using hickory or mesquite wood. Arrange fish in single layer on cooking grill and leave space between fish. Smoke fish until fish flakes with a fork, about 2 hours 30 minutes.
Mix all ingredients well. Refrigerate overnight. Serve with crackers or chips. Makes about 2 cups.
