Smoked Steelhead Trout Spread

With Thanksgiving and Christmas just around the corner, you’re going to want some new munchies to set out while the turkey cooks.  We Grilled Steelhead Trout last night for dinner, which is quite mild in flavor.  We had nearly 6 oz. leftover from his huge filet, so I got creative with it today and made a fantastic spread for low-carb crackers or veggie dipping.  This was one of the yummiest dips/spreads I’ve ever created, so I do hope you’ll try it sometime!  Plan for it to disappear fast, as it it THAT good!   You can substitute grilled salmon if that is more readily available, but be aware that commercially smoked salmon will be considerably stronger in fish/smoke flavor and much higher in sodium than a fish you grill at home yourself.
