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.

shakes hot pepper sauce, more if you like
1/2 tsp
each salt and pepper, or to taste
1 1/2 tsp
dill weed divided
small shallot rings or red onion rings to garnish
capers to garnish each appetizer

Directions Step-By-Step

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.

I love mahi mahi. it is such a good clean meaty fish. i think mahi mahi is the perfect choice for this recipe. The horseradish with meaty white fish.. sounds amazing! Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Maggie.
GW really liked the mahi mahi, both ways... as a hot main dish, and as this appetizer.
GW gave a sample to Bobby, the guy that caught it and gave it to us, and I gave some to Myriam last nite as an appetizer with some crackers.
