Smoked Whitefish Salad



Recipe Information

Total Time: 

30 minutes



This chunky whitefish salad may appear similar to tuna salad in ingredients, but the smoky, fishier flavor of smoked whitefish gives it a wonderful quality all its own.


  • 12 ounces smoked whitefish, skin removed, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup light sour cream
  • 1/2 cup celery, minced (about 1-2 ribs)
  • 1/2 cup green apple, diced
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chives, minced
  • salt and pepper to taste


In a large mixing bowl, blend mayonnaise, sour cream, lemon juice and chives. Toss with the roughly-chopped whitefish, celery and apple, and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serving Suggestion

Stuff small tomatoes with this salad and serve with a crusty bread roll and a green salad. It also makes a lovely hors d’oeuvre served with fresh baguette slices, crostini, Matzo or other fine crackers. Or serve for breakfast on bagels.
