#SundaySupper #BeatTheHeat Smoked Whitefish Salad Bagel Bites

This week’s #SundaySupper features cool recipes ideas to get you out of the kitchen and #beattheheat!

I was privilaged to work in a family owned deli for 13 years. The thing is, the same family didn’t own it the entire 13 years! In reality, over the years there were 6 different families: 1 Jewish, 1 Irish, 3 German and one Greek! Talk about culture shock! I learned a wealth of techniques, recipes and traditions all in one place. I was truly blessed!
When we first opened we carried a line of popular fishes; Nova and belly lox, kippered salmon, herring, sable, carp and smoked whitefish, which was usually sturgeon. Whitefish salad was a popular item to put on our freshly baked bagels (yes, I learned how to make those too). Nothing tastes quite like it, salty and smoky, mild yet bold.
That was where I learned to clean fish too! Wow 30 years later I still remember!

Smoked fish is part of so many cultures. If you have never had it, try it sometime!
I replaced the traditional mayo with sour cream, although the sour cream version has been around a long time!

Smoked Whitefish Salad Bagel Bites

Smoked whitefish is a great change from tuna or salmon salad. Check your deli department for flaked whitefish, a great time saver!

1. Add whitefish, celery and scallions to a medium-size bowl. Mix.

2. In a separate bowl, mix sour cream, lemon juice and dill.

    Oh my gosh Cindy this brings back so many memories! My grandmother used to serve smoked whitefish and/or mackerel with Sunday breakfast. She would smoke the fish on Saturday, so delicious. I introduced my husband to lox and cream cheese. Now he's a smoked fish fan too.

    Have a wonderful week!
