Smoked fish dip

Discussion in 'Fish' started by rather be in the keys, Oct 17, 2009.

  1. I've got some dolphin fish fillets that I'm looking to smoke and make into fish dip.

    Anyone have any recipes for smoked fish dip?

    Here is one, don't know how it will work, but the cookbook (Prejean's) it is from has some awesome recipes and they are good.

    2 Pounds smoked fish
    1/4 Cup Butter
    1/2 Cup Finely Diced Onion
    1/2 Cup Finely Diced Pepper
    1/2 Cup Finely Diced Celery
    1/2 TSP Granulated Garlic
    2 TSP Salt
    2 TSP Sugar
    1 TSP Lemon Juice
    1 TSP Cayenne Pepper
    1/2 TSP Black Pepper
    1/2 Cup Finely Chopped Parsley
    2 TSP Tabasco
    1 Cup Mayonnaise

    Use your fingers, flake the fish apart into small pieces

    In a skillet over high heat, melt butter. Add onion, bell pepper, and celery. Stir well and saute until onion begins to brown. Remove from heat and transfer mixture to bowl.

    To sauteed mixture, add garlic, salt, sugar, lemon juice, cayenne, black pepper, green onion, parsley, tabasco, and Mayo. Mix well. Carefully fold in flaked fish until thoroughly mixed. Cover and refrigerate 24 hours before serving...
  3. has several smoked fish dip recipes and directions for smoking fish several ways.

  4. Thanks. It'll have to be later. I did chicken today.

    Cajun smoke gives you a really good recipe for fish dip. I tried to find the other one I know of here but no results and if I fine it I will pm you with it.

    Curious to see how the Mahi turns out....I wouldn't think that would be oily enough to smoke.

    Mahi will work fine. Not a super oily fish but will smoke well. Not as forgiving if you over cook it. I don't cook by recipe but I often use a side of salmon for smoked fish dip. I like to include fine diced onion, celery, red or yellow peppers, salt, pepper, maybe some old bay, mayo and cream cheese to hold it together, lemon or lime juice and a shot of some heat. Either tobasco, diced jalepenos or other hot sauce. I will never do anything exactly the same way. Just cook off the cuff
  8. I've got a cream cheese based dip I will post the recipe for when I get home.
