If after reading the title, your first inclination was to stick out your tongue and say “mleeeeeh”, I’m going to have to ask you to just stick with me on this post.
My sister confessed to eating this behind a pillow at my parent’s house in case she made a face. But then she went back for more. And so will you. Pinky swear.
Smoked Trout Dip
1/4 tsp dried dill
1 tsp Old Bay seasoning
1 tblsp of lemon juice
1 8 oz package of cream cheese, softened
2 small cans of smoked trout (or other smoked fish)
1 green onion, diced
1-3 cloves of garlic, depending on taste.
1) Open the can of fish, and drain any oil that is in there. I got the trout at Trader Joes.
2) In a food processor, add the trout, dill, lemon juice, garlic, and cream cheese. Pulse until combined.
3) Remove the mixture from the food processor, and put in a bowl or lidded container. Add the Old Bay and green onions, and mix to combine.
Refrigerate for at least one hour to allow the flavors to meld. Serve with veggies, crackers, or crusty bread.
And a healthy dose of skepticism for those of you who are still saying “meh”.
