Smoked Mahi Mahi Dip

Jane Whittaker


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.
