While visiting Nantucket, SAVEUR contributing writer Sarah Lydon and her family purchased smoked bluefish from one of the island's fish markets, and turned it into a delicious pate using the following method.
Yield: makes 2 Cups
- 6 oz. smoked bluefish
- 8 oz. softened cream cheese
- <sup>1</sup>⁄<sub>2</sub> medium red onion, peeled and minced
- 4-6 dashes Tabasco
- Snipped fresh chives for garnish
- Remove and discard skin and dark flesh from bluefish. Using your fingers, flake bluefish into a medium bowl. Add cream cheese, red onion, and Tabasco and stir with a wooden spoon until thoroughly combined.
