Smoked trout is a stealth red carpet ingredient. I never used to buy it, until one day, I was star struck by a dip at a friend’s house. She didn’t even have a recipe – it was one of those oh-I-just-threw-it-together kinds of recipes. Great. After doing a little taste detective work and some experiments in my kitchen it came down to five basic, but potently flavorful ingredients: cream cheese, smoked trout, onion, horseradish and parsley. Any one of these elemental flavors will make a dip zingy and delicious. All together they make a mouthwatering, charming appetizer that stands out in a crowd on the potluck table. And the best of it all? It really takes no more than 10 minutes to make.
