Smoked Tuna Dip And Potato Chips

By Yanni-

(serves 4)

1lb smoked tuna, chunked

2 bundles of green onions, chopped

1 bundle of fresh dill, chopped

4 ounces of cream cheese

3 tablespoons Greek yogurt

3 tablespoons mayonnaise

3 tablespoon sour cream

1 lemon juice

2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

2 tablespoons prepared horse radish

½ gallon of peanut oil

2 russet potatoes, thinly sliced and immediately placed into a large bowl of water

2 sweet potatoes, thinly sliced and immediately placed into a large bowl of water

½ gallon peanut oil

Sea Salt

Coarse black pepper

Making The Homemade Smoked Tuna Dip

1. Start by adding the chunked tuna, green onions, fresh dill into a large mixing bowl. Now add the sour cream, yogurt, cream cheese and mayonnaise. Start mixing. Add the lemon juice and red wine vinegar along with the horse radish. Give it one final mix and place the dip into the refrigerator until needed.

Fry The Chips

Allow the cut potato chips to sit in the bowl of cold water for at least 10 minutes (this will allow the potato starches to migrate into the water, resulting in a crispier fried chip). Heat the oil to 360F and begin frying the potato chips in small batches (this will help prevent the oil from dropping in temperature). Fry until golden brown. Add sea salt right after the chips are pulled from the frying oil.

Serving The Homemade Smoked Tuna Dip And Chips

1. Place the chips in a bowl, along side a bowl of tuna dip. Garnish the dip with chopped green onions and freshly crackled black pepper. Insert chips into tuna dip and go town. Don’t forget to leave some for the rest of the family!
