Quick dipping recipe, this smoked tuna required just your normal in fridge or pantry ingredients and can be done within 15 minutes. The result is marvelous and can be used to dip regular carrot sticks, celery, apple, or anything to your liking.
To start with, you would need those smoked flavor tuna pouches that can be found in the canned section of any grocery store. Or if you can’t find anything with smoke, grab the regular albacore tuna can. Then add a couple of drops of liquid smoke to correct the sense. You can also smoke your own fresh tuna on the grill, but this definitely requires more time and energy to do.
For the binder, I would use mayo, but you can also substitute with anything from sour cream, cream cheese, or even Greek yogurt to achieve the same texture. Just make sure to add or decrease Worcestershire and salt. Soy sauce is added to enhance tuna flavor but can be skipped as well as it might alter the overall color.
I would use white onion and scallion the spruce up the scents. Parsley is added as well, but you’re free to add any desirable herbs.
This dip is just as versatile as the favorite clam dip, and can be enjoyed in many ways. Besides the appetizer, I would just whip in additional tuna and veggies to turn this leftover (if any) tuna salad. Thus don’t worry if you’re making too much or someone forgets to dip their sticks.
