This delicious, creamy dip is a wonderful addition to your appetizer selection.
The Fish Friday Foodies are sharing recipes using Fish from a Can today......
I invited the others to join me this month in opening up those cans of various fish and seafood that they had in the pantry. My pantry always has canned tuna, of course, but you might also find canned crab, salmon, clams and anchovies in there.
Let's see what cans the others opened today.......
- Food Lust People Love: Artichoke Tuna Bean Salad
- Sneha’s Recipe: Keto Tuna Melt Chaffle
- A Day in the Life on the Farm: Smoked Clam Dip
- Karen’s Kitchen Stories: Spicy Salmon and Potato Croquettes
- Palatable Pastime: Tuna Melt
- Culinary Cam: Growing an Appreciation for Tinned and Jarred Fish + an Anchovy-Artichoke Egg Salad Recipe
This dip takes only a few ingredients and 5 minutes to throw together. I always try to have shrimp in the freezer, canned fish in the cupboard and cream cheese in the refrigerator. I am lucky enough to have friends and family that often stop by when they are in the area and I like to be able to offer them refreshments.
A block of cream cheese can be mixed with just about anything to make a wonderful snack in a flash. This crab dip has been a favorite for a long time. Don't like smoky flavors, you can make this creamy clam dip instead. I personally love smoked fish and this smoked whitefish dip is another favorite as well as smoked salmon mousse.
Don't like seafood? No problem. Grab a jar of jam instead and make this Peach Jalapeno Cheese Spread.
Any of these dips or spreads will be perfect to start off your Easter Feast. Speaking of Easter, I am sharing my weekly menu that includes not only Easter but ideas for leftovers.
Tomorrow night we are singing for the Easter Vigil. Easter Sunday, Frank is singing at 11:30 Mass while I prepare our dinner. My son in law, who went vegetarian for a couple of years has now decided to include fish/seafood in his diet so this smoked clam dip is perfect on the charcuterie platter that will be out for guests to enjoy before dinner.
And then suddenly....this hectic pace that I have been keeping for the past 6 weeks just comes to a halt!!
No more fish fry dinners to prepare, no more extra choir practices to get ready for Holy Week, no more running around to prepare and distribute food baskets so others can celebrate our Risen Lord.
Poof!!! The Lord is Risen and peace returns to my world. Alleluia, Alleluia!!!
