This rich spread goes best with plain crackers such as unsalted saltines or Carr's Table Water Crackers.
1 pound smoked trout fillets, skinned
1/2 cup sliced celery
1/3 cup sliced green onions
1/3 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
1/4 cup (2 ounces) tub-style light cream cheese
1 tablespoon stick margarine or butter
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
88 water crackers
How to Make It
Break trout fillets into large pieces. Place trout pieces and the next 8 ingredients (trout through hot sauce) in a food processor, and process until smooth, scraping the sides of processor bowl occasionally. Serve spread with crackers.
Excellent appetizer. Elegant enough for a dinner party.
For this year, I substituted goat cheese for the ricotta and red onion for the green onion.
I've also made this with smoked salmon (pacific style, not Nova lox) and it comes out delicious.
