I'm not a blue fish fan so I used smoked trout instead and threw in some capers just for fun. I loved this and so did my guests. Thank you Karen!! Read More

I have trouble finding bluefish and have used trout and mackerel otherwise I follow the recipe to the tee. Both of which make a nice pate. Always gets rave reviews from friends and family! Read More
