Smoked Trout and Chive Cream Cheese Spread

"From the "Smokin" cookbook Makes about 1 1/2 cups, may be doubled easily for a large crowd. This recipe is to be made using a stove top smoker."
Ready In:
1 1/2 cups




  • Smoke the trout according to the recipe Stove Top Smoker Smoked Whole Trout. (See related recipe).
  • Cool to room temperature.
  • Pick over the trout fillet, removing any fine bones or pieces of skin but leaving the trout in the largest pieces possible.
  • Stir the trout, cream cheese, scallions, lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper together gently in a mixing bowl until blended, leaving the trout in smallish pieces. (For an even chunkier spread, beat all the ingredients except the trout together, then gently fold in the trout)
  • Taste and stir in a little more salt and/or pepper if you like.
  • The spread may be made up to two days in advance and stored, covered in the refrigerator.
  • Bring to room temperature and sprinkle the chives over the top before serving.
  • If you're making canapes or stuffing celery with the spread, sprinkle a little of the chives over each.
