Fish Dip Face-Off

Fish Dip Face-Off

Makes about 2 cups total, 1 cup of each dip.

In the little seaside town of Stuart, Florida, the Mister's family has been vacationing for years.  And while there, they always have to have Mrs. Peters' Smoked Fish Dip.  They love it, and I was recently introduced to it myself when we went there last spring.. its great.  In an attempt to recreate it myself, I made two fish dips for the family to judge.  Dip #2 was supposed to be the most like Mrs. Peters' (based on the ingredients listed on her website), but Dip #1 was the winner in terms of taste!

Start with:
10 oz. smoked mackerel (plain or peppered)
6 oz. smoked halibut

Dip #1 additions:
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
Juice from 1/2 lemon
1/8 c. mayo
4 T. minced onion
Garlic salt, to taste

Dip #2 additions:
1/2-3/4 c. mayo (you make the call)
Juice from 1/2 lemon
2 T. white vinegar
Garlic salt, to taste

Crumble smoked fish in a large bowl and divide equal portions into two bowls.

To bowl #1, add ingredients listed under Dip #1.

To bowl #2, add ingredients listed under Dip #2.

Stir both dips well.  Serve with crackers.  Store leftovers in refrigerator.
