Author Notes: This one comes from my friend, Andrea Bates, who whips it up on a moment’s notice. It never fails to impress. – erizzo —mamariz
Food52 Review: For a dip, this smoked trout mousse is surprisingly satisfying. The horseradish complements the flavor perfectly, without overwhelming the smoked trout or adding much heat. The technique of blending the cream cheese separately from the smoked trout results in a dip that has a light, fluffy texture, perfect for scooping up with a water cracker–preferably the roasted garlic kind. —CookLikeMad
