How to make smoked tuna dip

Prep your tuna. Make sure you chop the tuna prior to adding it to the mixing bowl. They should be in smaller than bite sized chunks.

Add ingredients to a mixing bowl. Mix with an electric hand held mixer until well combined. The dip will have small lumps, due to the pieces of tuna. If you don’t have a mixer, you can break up the tuna with a fork.

Place in serving bowl and sprinkle with chopped fresh parsley and a pinch of Old Bay.

Serve with pretzels, crackers or pita chips. Chill if you are not serving the dip right away.

FAQs and tips about smoked tuna dip

How long will smoked tuna dip last?

It’s always best to store your leftover dip in an airtight container in the fridge. It should remain fresh for 3-5 days.

What kind of crackers go with fish dip?

My favorite for smoked fish is a plain old ritz cracker. This dip has tons of flavor so you don’t want to over power it with flavored crackers. If you want a fancier option try a multigrain cracker.

Is smoked fish raw?

Smoked fish is cooked unless it is cold smoked, which allows it to keep its raw texture. For this recipe I used a hot smoked ahi tuna steak. You can find this where you would find most smoked salmon in your supermarket.
