Our Smoked Whitefish Spread is a long-time favorite on our appetizer and late-night menus. It’s deliciously smokey and makes for a perfect dish to pass - whether you’re headed to a tailgate, game day party or potluck. We use locally smoked whitefish from Charlie's Smokehouse in Gills Rock. If you can't find smoked whitefish in your area, you can also purchase it on their website. This recipe is sure to elevate any appetizer spread and fill your Cookery void while we’re closed for the winter. Bon appétit!
