Fish spread for crackers

Please excuse my coarse words for what I'm about to undertake. I want to make a fish spread along with cheese and crackers for an appetizer for Christmas.

I know that there are several fancy terms for fancy spread. The only one that is coming to mind is rillettes. I'm not sure that one even applies to fish.

Regardless, I need your help in making something along the lines of a walleye fish spread that would go well with cheese and crackers.

How odd.
When I read the thread title about a fish spread the first fish that came to mind was walleye.
I highly recommend using some type of smoked fish. Even smokes salmon would be good.
Smoked walleye and smoked whitefish are sold around Lake Superior.
For the 'spread' part I recommend using an aioli instead of mayo.

How about good old gefilte fish, or would it be sacrilegious to serve a Jewish delicacy a Christmas party?

When I am down in South Florida, they serve a fish dip at many restaurants that is made from any number of oily fishes. Its always smoked. Its also available in Sam's down there.
Tuna, salmon, sailfish and marlin come to mind. The ingredient list says it can contain one or all the species listed.
I cannot find it here in SC.

Its served on crackers (you make these yourself at the table).
Topped with one slice of jalapeño and a few drops of your favorite hot sauce.
Maybe Craig can chime in on the brand name.
I had it in my memory bank. But the bank is not what it used to be.

Oh....I think the brand name is 'Atlantis'. Its terrific!

Smoked mullet dip/spread is very popular on the Florida west coast,especially around the Tampa/St. Pete area.

I know this isn't what you asked-- we like small jars of Pickled herring, slice in halves if they herring pieces are too large, add a slice or two of onion rings when you put in a serving bowl, add a few red pepper flakes and some whole all-spice. Marinate for a few hours before serving. Must be served on a Ritz cracker.

You can serve fish spreads on cucumber slices, celery or stuffed in hollowed out cherry tomatoes.

We/ I make either hot smoked salmon, whitefish or lake trout pretty near every Christmas or NY's. Can't say I have seen smoked walleye. If I have, it was probably too expensive and I kept on walking.

Here's my recipe. Feel free to tweak.

Smoked Salmon/ Smoked Fish Spread

8 oz. cream cheese, softened to room temperature
1/2 cup sour cream
1 Tbs. lemon juice ( plus some zest)
1 Tbs. fresh dill, finely chopped, I think I have used other herbs, tarragon, or just parsley
3 tsp. prepared horseradish
1/2 tsp. Kosher salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1 cup smoked salmon, finely chopped (or smoked trout)
green onion, tops or 2 tablespoons minced onion
A few shakes Tabasco, enough to brighten the mx, not to add heat

Place all ingredients in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse in short bursts until ingredients are well-incorporated and mostly smooth. Chill until serving.
