Florida is know for it's smoked fish dips.  There are many variations to making it depending on what part of Florida you are in.  Harbor Docks restaurant in Destin, FL serves the best smoked tuna dip in the area.  The owner, Charles Morgan, was happy to give out the recipe for an article written back in 2007.    The recipe is so good because the tuna is fresh and only hours old when it is brined and smoked.  Plus they make the dip fresh-from-scratch every morning, and -like all good recipes- it is simple and uncomplicated with minimal ingredients.  So if you want to have a taste of the Florida Panhandle, give this a try.



Harbor Docks Smoked Tuna Dip


1 quart water

1/4 cup salt

2 1/2 lbs. fresh yellowfin tuna

1 1/2 cups mayonnaise (can use more or less depending on your preferred consistency)

1 tablespoon black pepper

1 tablespoon garlic powder

Hot sauce to taste


Combine salt and water.  Soak tuna steaks in a salt water brine for one hour before smoking.  Transfer to a smoker and smoke until cooked through (do not overcook).  Chop smoked tuna steaks to your desired consistency (rough chopped or finely chopped - Harbor Docks chops fine)


In a stainless steel mixing bowl, combine smoked tuna, mayonnaise, pepper and garlic powder and mix well.  Harbor Docks doesn't use hot sauce in their recipe, but offers it tableside to be added for individual tastes.
