Smoked Fish Hummus

This is always on the list when whipping up mezze for friends. Hot smoked salmon can replace the white smoked fish if desired. 


250 grams moist smoked fish, skin and bones removed
¾ cup cannellini beans (½ of a 400 gram tin)
1 tablespoon tahini
1 tablespoon horseradish sauce
zest 1 lemon
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 clove garlic, crushed
sea salt and ground pepper
To serve
olive oil to drizzle
¼ cup tamari roasted almonds, chopped
2 tablespoons chopped parsley or dill


Place all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. Season generously with salt and pepper and add more lemon juice if needed. 

To serve: Spread on a serving plate and drizzle over a little oil. Combine the almonds and parsley or dill and scatter over the top. Makes about 1½ cups.
