Smoked Steelhead Trout Dip from Lemony Thyme

This wonderful Smoked Steelhead Trout Dip recipe couldn’t have come at a better time.   

What a couple of weeks it’s been for my work family (major understatement).  You may have noticed a drop in the number of new recipes I’ve been sharing as I’m struggling a bit focusing on much other than work and my second family.  By the time I get here, to my laptop at my kitchen table, I’m mentally drained.

Having said that, I’ve been well fed and 100% supported.  Walking through the door and being met by a bowl of Smoked Steelhead Troup Dip has certainly lightened the load.

If you’ve never had Steelhead Trout it is similar to Salmon and smokes equally as well.  Here‘s a quick description of this fish species.  We’ve found it readily available (and fresh) at our local wholesale club.

We first dry brined the fish overnight in a brown sugar kosher salt rub.  Then it was on to the new pellet smoker for a low slow go of it.  The natural flavors intensify with this process, while also taking on delicious smoky tones, making it perfect for dips or spreads.

I did manage to sneak an ounce or so to top my bagel with.  What a glorious treat.
