Everyone Will Love This Smoked Fish Dip Recipe

Living here in Florida, we have some of the best fresh seafood around. My parents went out in the Gulf on the boat on Friday and ended up only catching one trout. What do you do with just one trout? One fish is not near enough to make The Best Blackened Fish Tacos…but it was enough to make this glorious Smoked Fish Dip!

I made this for a Memorial Day pool party we went too and everyone was gobbling it up. Even non-fish lovers loved this dip! Heck, even Lyla and Ellie were chowing down!

My Family Loves Making Homemade Smoked Fish

A few Christmases ago we all pitched in and bought my Dad an amazing smoker. We smoke ribs, chicken, pork, sausage and fish. There is literally no meat we won’t smoke!

It’s just all so delicious once he smokes it. He hysterically likes to call it his “man crockpot” since he sets it up and lets it go. If you don’t have a smoker, it should definitely be on your list of things to try.

Jorge and I don’t personally have a smoker, but lucky my parents live close enough that we can just borrow theirs when we want to. It’s definitely on Jorge’s wish list though!

This Smoked Fish Dip Is A Quick Appetizer For Parties

This Smoked Fish Dip is a creamy full flavor Florida party classic. 6 ingredients, 5 minutes and a quick whirl in the food processor and it’s ready to go. Gotta love those 30 minutes or less dishes!

Can You Make This Fish Dip Ahead Of Time?

You can whip it up to a couple of days ahead of a party and it will taste just as fresh. It also makes an awesome afternoon snack.

Where Can I Buy Smoked Fish?

In case you don’t have an awesome Dad bringing home a fresh catch, you can also buy smoked white fish in the seafood section of most grocery stores (just ask someone to help you find it!). It is also sometimes found in the canned meat section.

If you can’t find it anywhere, your last resort can be to grill a filet of white fish and then add a little liquid smoke to the dip. Just be careful as liquid smoke can be powerful — add a little and taste as you go!

    Put on a plain saltine cracker with a slice of pickled jalapeno! Have been eating it this way for 30 years.

    I substituted bluegill for smoked whitefish. I added a some liquid smoke to the recipe, and I think it turned out GREAT. This is now one of my favorite dips

    Smokers are so good. We have one and use it all the time, just this weekend in fact. I have made a crab dip that is a favorite. I imagine this would be just as delicious. 

  7. Julia

    That dip looks like it would pair perfectly with an ice cold beer. The smoky flavor is perfect with the fish too!
