This is a product of leftovers.
- 1/3 cup smoked fish (sea fish such as sardines or mackerel)
- 1/2 cup cream cheese
- 1/4 lemon, juice and zest
- 2 Tbsp. fresh chives, minced (for dried chives, use 1 Tbsp.)
In a food processor, grind the fish until a paste. Add the cream cheese and grind until homogenous. Add the lemon juice and zest, to taste. Finally, add the chives at the end. Waiting to add the chives will prevent the schmear from turning green. Slather on your favorite bagel. This will keep for a couple weeks in the fridge.
