Smoked Herring Dip

I squealed with delight when I saw Savory Alaska at Rockwall Farmers Market the other day. Fresh Alaskan seafood? Sign me up! I stocked the freezer with fresh salmon, scallops, and white fish, but I also grabbed a can of smoked octopus and smoked herring. I gobbled up the octopus immediately (it was amazing!) and I turned the smoked herring into a delicious little dip for my vineyard picnic.

I served this with crackers for a super fast and easy appetizer. It seriously took minutes to prepare. I will say though, I thought it was quite a bit better the next day so make it the day before or at least the morning of if you can.

Sadly I didn’t really get a final hero image of this dip. I meant to at the vineyard but what can I say, the jazz was playing, the wine was flowing, and I simply lost myself enjoying the food.
