Tastes just like the dip served at your favorite seafood restaurant! This easy dip takes just minutes to make, and will be devoured in even less!
Not long after relocating to the east coast, we embraced what the natives do and started visiting the beach on a semi-regular basis. Texas does have a beach, but it isn't the top vacation choice for most Texans, our family included. But east coast beaches? Definitely included in the vacation plans of most North Carolinian's.
Our first trip was to Myrtle Beach. Because I loved the movie Shag growing up and it's based in Myrtle, I just had to visit it. And while many would deem it the tourist trip of the coast, I still love it. In North Myrtle Beach there is a seafood restaurant that we stumbled upon. We liked it so much that we usually eat there a couple times every trip. While the food is good, it's the smoked fish dip that keeps us coming back. We fight over the cup they bring to the table and always buy a carton to take to the condo. On our last trip, we ate a carton in the condo and grabbed another on the way home!
Since I haven't been to the beach in a few months (that will be rectified soon!), I was in smoked fish dip withdrawal and went on the hunt for something that tastes similar.
This recipe hit it out of the park! It doesn't just taste similar, it tastes dead on. It's so addictive, it was a huge struggle to leave some for the husband. The fact that you can throw it all in your food processor and have it on a cracker in less than 5 minutes makes it even better.
If you've never had smoked fish dip before, please rectify that soon - and bring me some!
