Smoked mullet is awesome when combined with some tasty ingredients, then paired with a good old saltine cracker.
Recipe type: Seafood
Cuisine: Seafood
Serves: 6
  • 1 smoked Mullet (mine was just under 1 lb.)
  • 2 oz. cream cheese
  • 1-2 Tb. mayonnaise
  • 1 rib celery, cut in chunks
  • 1 small onion, cut in chunks
  • ½ jalapeno (seeds removed)
  • 1 tsp. lime zest
  • 1 Tb. lemon juice
  • Handful fresh parsley
  • Kosher salt & freshly ground pepper to taste
  • Saltine crackers
  • Your favorite hot sauce
  1. Remove fish from skin and be sure to capture/remove any bones.
  2. Place cream cheese, mayonnaise, celery, onion, jalapeño, lime zest, lemon juice and parsley in food processor. Pulse a couple of times.
  3. Add fish and pulse a couple more times, until it all looks blended (tip - try not to create mush - it’s nice to have some texture in the spread).
  4. Add salt, pepper and a bit more lemon juice to taste.
  5. Refrigerate at least one hour before serving.
  6. Serve with saltine crackers and a dash of hot sauce.
