Best Fish Dip Ever!

Best Fish Dip Ever!

We all have our own gifts and talents, and I have been blessed with a greek husband, Robert, who is a gourmet. Anytime I am in my studio painting, he is usually in the kitchen creating something new himself. We love the coastal life and seafood, and he is always exploring new recipes and how he can modify them to make them his own.

We recently went to a new seafood restaurant in St. Augustine that commissioned me to paint an oyster triptych, and while there, we were impressed with their Fish Dip recipe. Once at home, my husband has the challenge of trying to recreate in our kitchen, and here is what he designed.

We love to shop at Trader Joe's, and he loves their sardines, which I am not usually a fan. But once he created this recipe, he won me over. It's an amazing easy recipe to bring to your next social gathering, once we are all finally doing the social thing again!

  • Trader Joe’s Smoked Sardines in Olive Oil (or smoked fish of choice)
  • Everglades Fish and Chicken
  • 1 block Cream cheese
  • A little mayo -approx. 2 tbsp
  • Black Pepper
  • Onion Powder
  • Garlic Powder
  • Old Bay Seasoning
  • Add favorite hot sauce to taste
  • Chopped fine green scallions
  • Fresh Parmesan cheese for topping
  • Dip with nachos, Pita Chips or we use the cracker assortment from Aldi's.

December 01, 2019

One of the projects that give me the most JOY during the holidays is commissioned portraits that are LIFE CELEBRATIONS collages. I wanted to capture a personality which would involve their likes, their lyrics, their family, their memories and all that makes them who they are. It's difficult to think of combining all of that in one canvas, but my heart is to bring together enough of their life and memories to touch their heart.

The challenge for me as I work on them,
