On one of our visits to the Gulf State Park Pier in Gulf Shores, Alabama, Ted Suttle brought out some smoked king mackerel dip that had anglers on the pier lined up with crackers in hand. From reports all across the U.S., anglers are catching plenty of king mackerel this summer.
- 8 cups broken-up smoked king mackerel
- 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 1/3-cup sour cream
- 1/3-cup mayonnaise
- 1/2-medium onion
- 8 ounces of jalapeno
- 2 green onions
- 1 bundle of celery
- 1/2-teaspoon cayenne pepper
Put all ingredients in a food processor, and enjoy! (Note: Suttle puts mustard and blackened seasoning on skinless king mackerel fillets and smokes then in a smoker for about 3 hours with hickory chips. Spray the grill with Pam to keep the fillets from sticking).

A complete-protein food, 1/4-pound lean fish supplies a person with 1/2 of their daily protein needs. Fish has all nine essential amino acids required by man, is easily-digestible and contains needed vitamins and minerals.
