Smoked Trout Dip

Don’t worry if you don’t have a smoker! Just read the ingredients for what you’ll need. If you don’t have the smoking oil, this recipe still tastes great without it. It’s the perfect appetizer or party side dish. It’s light and refreshing. This dip requires more than 2–3 filets if you’re making it for a larger crowd. Just keep adding ingredients as necessary to fulfill consistency and flavor. It’s simple and less stressful than trying to prevent the fish from flaking when it gets stuck to the bottom of the pan since we want it flakey!
