4.0/5 rating 1 vote
Mountain Trout Snack Spread

The creamy texture of this spread balances out the smoky fish flavor of the trout, and you can make it ahead of time.


  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened

  • 3 tablespoons sour cream

  • ½ cup smoked trout, coarsely chopped with skin removed

  • ¼ cup fresh parsley, coarsely chopped

  • ¼ cup green onion tops, coarsely chopped

  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper


  1. Put the room-temperature cream cheese, sour cream and trout in the bowl of a food processor. Process until smooth. Add the herbs and black pepper, and pulse just until combined but flecks of the green herbs remain.

  2. Put the mixture in a covered container and refrigerate for 6 hours or overnight. Serve with celery sticks or crackers. The spread can be made up to 2 days ahead of serving.
