Jane's notes for this recipe:
I used mahi mahi because that was what I had on hand, but feel free to use any kind of smoked fish you have.
The ingredients as well, use more or less as suits your tastes.
Our fish was brined first and smoked with apple wood. Look under my smoked mahi mahi recipe for directions on that.
Make it Your Way...

Personalize This


In a food processor pulse a small red onion
Add the smoked fish and pulse 4 times.
In a bowl with an electric mixer, whip the cream cheese til smooth. Add the onion, fish, lemon juice, horseradish, hot sauce salt and pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon dill weed. Mix well.
At this point you either have a wonderful sandwich filling, or put some on a cracker and garnish with onion rings, capers and a sprinkle of dill weed.
