Baked Smoky Fish Dip


  • 8 oz. cream cheese softened
  • 2 Tbsp. mayonnaise
  • 6-8 oz. smoked fish
  • Slap Your Mama seasoning or other cajun seasoning
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1/4 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 1/3 c. coarsely chopped smoked almonds a few extra for garnishing
  • 1 tsp. fresh lemon juice
  • zest one lemon
  • 3 thinly sliced green onions for garnish
  • 1 tsp. Worcestershire Sauce
  • few grinds of cracked black peppercorns
  • 1-2 drops liquid smoke optional

Pita Chips:

  • Pita bread
  • 4 Tbsp. butter melted
  • 1/2-1 tsp. lemon pepper seasoning


  1. Mix all the ingredients (except for the green onions) for the dip and put in a greased baking dish and bake in 325° oven until hot and bubbly. Serve with toasted pita chips.

    For the pita chips, I cut and separated into small triangle shapes. I melted 1/2 stick butter and mixed with 1/2-1 tsp. of lemon pepper and then brushed this on pita and baked in 300° oven until crisp.

Recipe Notes

I also served some toasted baguettes with my dip because I kind of burned some of my pita chips. I think a cracker like Trisket would be good with this spread.
