smoked fish dip

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Our food rep gave us 3lbs of smoked trout. The owner of the restaurant wants me to develop a Florida style smoked fish dip from the trout. She wants this for the lakeside bar she is opening soon.

My recipe for a smoked fish dip would be as follows;
3 lbs. smoked fish
3/4 cup red onion
3 tbls lemon juice
2 1/2 cup mayo
salt pepper, old bay

How would I alter this recipe to make it Florida style?
What do they serve with the dip down there?

Thanks in advance

We smoke our own fish then cool it, 3LBS CHOPPED ONION
10 lbs smoked fish 2 HEAD CELERY CHOPPED
1/2 cup worstchestire sauce
tobassco to taste
1/2 Gal Hellmans mayo
1 qt sour cream
I put all in Buffalo Chopper AND CHOP IT THEN ADD MAYO AND SOUR CREAM.

You can stretch it by adding panko bread crumbs or cracker meal but then let it sit overnight before use so all flavors unite
Squeeze liquid out of onion and celery after chopping:bounce:

I've never been to Florida, but I'll suggest adding some cream cheese and finely minced red bell pepper. Perhaps some chopped green onion tops to add a bit of color when serving.

I'm not sure where you are in Fl, but I spent the majority of my life in South Fl and if someone said "Florida Style" I would immediately think "Floribean". Remove the Old Bay and substitute Jerk seasoning, change the lemon for Key Lime Juice.

What makes something "Florida style?"

I'm serious. I've had smoked fish dips and spreads in several parts of Florida, and no two of them were exactly the same. Nor were there unique features you could point to that separated them from similar dips in other parts of the country.

For instance, here's one I've been making since I lived in the Midwest, 30 years ago:

Combine 2 cups flaked smoked fish, 1/3 cup mayo, 1/4 cup minced red onion, 1 tablespoon each of Sherry and minced parsley, 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard, 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic, 1/4 tsp white pepper, 1/2 teaspoon each of soy sauce and fresh lime juice, and S&P to taste.

Combine all ingredients and chill well.

How would you change this to make it Florida style?

im in the panhandle

i dunno what to tell you

we have seafood, fish fries and oyster shacks. barbeque and usual "southern fare" this is what i think of hwne i think of local food. soft shell crabs, fried mullet.

i wouldnt know except local ingredients are oranges, limes and pecans.

maybe some roasted red peppers would be nice

definitely some kind of mayo/sour cream/yogurt blend to make it creamy.

i think "fire" roasted tomatoes red peppers and onion go well with smoked fish.

i searched for "smoked fish dip" as well as the word "florida" in google and found these, all in connection with flrida and their "famous" (i didnt know) fish dips

About 2 cups flaked fish
8oz softened cream cheese
3tsp sweet relish
1tsp lemon juice
1/2 cup of milk
1 rib of finely chopped celery
1/4 cup of finely chopped onion
1TBSP finely chopped parsley
1tsp Worcestershire sauce
white/black/red ground peppercorns to taste
Soaked fish in milk for about an hour then mixed everything together.

Served it with Olive Oil and Sea Salt crackers
