Smoke Tuna Dip & Homemade Potato Chips

November 11, 2018

Homemade Smoked Tuna Dip

Did you know there are 6.7 million searches on Google

for “homemade smoked tuna dip?”  I'm assuming some

searchers are using store bought smoked fish to make

their dips.


But if you catch and then smoke their own tuna, I'm sure you're looking for a variety of recipes. And although each recipe is different, most have a lot in common.


This new recipe goes through some simple fundamentals  used in creating most tuna dips. And once learned, the varieties of dip you can make will be endless. And oh by the way, you get to learn how to make potato chips with this video recipe too!


Ever thought about smoking Bonito? If so, take a look at my Smoked Bonito recipe.


Smoked Tuna Dip And Potato Chips (serves 4)

1 pound smoked tuna, chunked

2 bundles of green onions, chopped

1 bundle of fresh dill, chopped

4 ounces of cream cheese

3 tablespoons Greek yogurt

3 tablespoons mayonnaise

3 tablespoon sour cream

1 lemon juice

2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

2 tablespoons prepared horse radish

½ gallon of peanut oil

2 russet potatoes, thinly sliced and immediately

placed into a large bowl of water

2 sweet potatoes, thinly sliced and immediately

placed into a large bowl of water

½ gallon peanut oil

Sea Salt

Coarse black pepper


Making The Homemade Smoked Tuna Dip

1. Start by adding the chunked tuna, green onions, fresh

dill into a large mixing bowl. Now add the sour cream,

yogurt, cream cheese and mayonnaise. Start mixing. Add

the lemon juice and red wine vinegar along with the horse

radish. Give it one final mix and place the dip into the

refrigerator until needed.


Fry The Chips

2. Allow the cut potato chips to sit in the bowl of cold water

for at least 10 minutes (this will allow the potato starches to

migrate into the water, resulting in a crispier fried chip).

Heat the oil to 360F and begin frying the potato chips in

small batches (this will help prevent the oil from dropping

in temperature). Fry until golden brown. Add sea salt right

after the chips are pulled from the frying oil.


Serving The Homemade Smoked Tuna Dip And Chips

3. Place the chips in a bowl, along side a bowl of tuna dip.

Garnish the dip with chopped green onions and freshly

crackled black pepper. Insert chips into tuna dip and go

town. Don't forget to leave some for the rest of the family!
