In this video, Chef John shows you how to make a creamy, smoky, and absolutely delicious schmear. The combination of cream cheese with smoked trout fillet is a classic. Spread it over pumpernickel bread slices or a toasted bagel. The schmear is flavored with capers, dill, and lemon juice. Be sure to refrigerate for a bit for all the flavors to blend together.
