South Florida Smoked Fish Dip

  • Author: Robyn
  • Total Time: 16 hours (if smoking the fish yourself)
  • Yield: 3-4 servings 1x


This dip is so good, you may eat the whole batch in one sitting! Enjoy!


  • 68 ounces smoked fish, skin removed, meat chopped in coarsely (so as not to burn out the motor on your food processor!)
  • 1/2  block Neufchatel cream cheese (Neufchatel is lower in fat and you can’t tell the difference in this recipe)
  • 2 jalapenos
  • juice of one lime
  • zest of one lime
  • 1 tablespoon old bay seasoning
  • 1/4 cup light mayo (or less, depending on how wet your mixture is and how well it is blending)
  • salt, pepper to taste


Puree ingredients in a food processor until well blended. I like to make mine almost whipped so as to easily spread on crackers. Be like a true Floridian and serve this with pickled jalapenos and hot sauce!
