“I’ve Got a Secret” Smoked Tuna Dip

08_Canned TunaOur old and dear friend Nancy always surprises us when we show up on her doorstep for a drink and a lot of laughs before riding around to view the Christmas lights or to sample the newest restaurant on the Emerald Coast.  The last time we visited, we were treated to her original recipe for a smoked tuna dip and after raves all around, she leaked the secret.  It was simply canned tuna with liquid smoke.  Now, we live on the coast in tuna territory but this was shockingly good.  We want to share it, with her permission.

  • 1 can of albacore tuna in water, drained well
  • 8 ounces of cream cheese, softened
  • 2 teaspoons of liquid smoke
  • 1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup of grated onion
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh parsley, minced
  • 2 splats of red pepper sauce
  • 1 teaspoon of lemon juice
  • Smoked paprika for taste and garnish

Combine all ingredients except for the paprika and chill for a couple of hours.  Mound in a serving dish, sprinkle the paprika for taste and garnish and surround it with saltine crackers…just like your favorite fish camp!
