Comments: 0


This can be stuffed into any cooked vegetable, served with crudités, spread on  crostini or tucked into fully baked miniature tart shells.

Yield: Makes 1¼ cups (see Notes)


  • One 8-ounce whole smoked trout
  • ¼ cup minced celery
  • ¼ cup minced yellow onion
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 tablespoons very cold heavy cream


Remove the skin, head and tail from the trout. Gently pull the fillets from the bones, leaving even the very fine bones attached.

In a mixing bowl, gently shred the fillets with two forks; remove any fine bones now. Set aside.

Cook the celery and onion in butter over medium-low heat until softened, about 5 minutes. Add, with pepper, to the fish. Cool.

Beat the cream until it holds soft peaks. Gently fold into the trout.Refrigerate for at least 3 to 4 hours, or up to 2 days, before using.



This makes enough to fill:

6 cucumber boats made from 5-ounce Kirby cucumbers

Shells made from three 7-ounce or four 6-ounce tomatoes

5 halves of 8-ounce Hass avocados

4 cooked boats made from 5-ounce zucchini
