I love to have easy appetizer recipes in my bag of tricks for those unexpected, last minute parties. Or just for lazy Sunday afternoon snack time.

Smoked fish nestled in an herbed mayo with salty capers get a touch of sweetness from golden raisins while a paper-thin jalapeno slice finishes the whole crunchy bite with a sliver of heat.

This recipe comes together in minutes. Assembling each one might take longer than mixing it all up. Check your cupboard because you might even have most of the ingredients already, except for the smoked fish. Bookmark or print this Fat and Happy appetizer, but don’t tuck it away too deep. You never know how quickly you may need a simple recipe.

Mahi Mahi Appetizers: Smoked Fish on a Tortilla Chip

  • 1 oz smoked white fish
  • 3 tablespoons golden raisins
  • 2 tablespoons capers
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon each freshly chopped parsley, chive and dill
  • 1 teaspoon finely minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 jalapeno
  • tortilla chips (use a GF chip for a gluten free option)

Roughly chop the raisins and toss in a small bowl with the capers. Add the mayo, the fresh herbs and the lemon, stir to combine. Thinly slice the jalapeno, set aside. Thinly slice or break apart the smoked fish.

To assemble, spread a little spoon of the herb mayo on a chip. Top with a little smoked fish and one slice of the jalapeno. Or set up a little assembly station for your guest to create their own.

Fat and Happy Food Blog Tips and Techniques: Any smoked white fish will work. These are meant to be enjoyed in one or two bites to get the best flavor mix, keep that in mind when when you are assembling to keep from making them too large.
