A smoked snoek spread brings South Africa into your television room. Serve this with paper-thin Melba toast, bowls of roasted garlic, caper berries and sundried tomatoes. Scrumptious!
Smoked Snoek Spread
Yields : about 320g
85 g Smoked Snoek or Smoked Trout
1 ½ cloves crushed Garlic
5 sprigs Chopped Fennel
6 sprigs Chopped Chives
15 ml freshly squeezed Lemon Juice
¼ Onion or 1 ½ T grated Onion
200g Cream Cheese
60 ml of lightly whipped Cream
Salt and freshly ground Black Pepper
1) Flake the snoek or trout into small pieces (chef’s note: when using trout lightly pan sear in butter to allow easy flaking)
2) Add the garlic, fennel, chives, lemon juice and onion to the snoek
3) Finish with the cream cheese and cream amount
4) Season and serve with Melba Toast (chef’s note: use stale bread or freeze your bread overnight. This will make slicing quick and easy. Once sliced place into an oven on a low heat to allow even drying out until crispy.)
