Stir together 2 tablespoons finely chopped shallot, 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, and ¼ teaspoon salt. Beat in 8 ounces of softened cream cheese, 4 ounces smoked bluefish* (skin discarded, fish chopped), and ¼–½ teaspoon pepper with a spoon until combined well. If you like, stir in 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives. Serve with crackers.

*or smoked trout

  2. I love a new recipe. Keeping this one (though having to think about which fish to use here).
