Smoked Fish Dip

This smoked fish dip was inspired by Summer and spending time down at a family bach in the Marlborough Sounds. The past Summer the boys spent many evenings chasing Kingfish. After a successful night, a big catch was smoked and portioned into vacuum-packed bags and saved in the freezer for pies, chowders and dips such as this.

It's gluten-free, nut-free and most importantly delicious! A one-bowl wonder you can easily whip up to feed guests and family and friends alike. Serve with buttered toast, grainy crackers or even corn chips.
