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.

This past year, with the unsurety of the Pandemic and isolation, I felt a calling back to those butterflies that had given me so much quiet joy in the past.

Usually when I paint birds or butterflies, they sell quickly, but I have been gathering a collection of smaller works, affordable for anyone who wishes to collect some beauty for their home. They will be included in an upcoming exhibit called S O L A C E. at the Jewish Community Alliance Center in Jacksonville, FL.
