Make this dip a day ahead of when you want to serve it. The flavors are deeper when it has a chance to set up. You'll need a grill (or smoker), cherry or apple wood chips and a smoker boss for this one. Adapted from Chef Joe Cascio's Famous Fish Dip

Directions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
In a dish large enough to hold the fish fillets, add the Pickling Spice (1.5 ounce) and several cups of water. Add the fish and ensure that the water covers the fillets. Set aside for 1 1/2 hours.
Step 2
Prepare the grill or smoker for indirect cooking. Add the dry wood chips to the smoker box. Set the wood chips over the heat source on the grill and heat until it reaches about 250 degrees F to 275 degrees F and begins to smoke.
Step 3
Add the Skin-on Kingfish Fillet (1.5 pound), skin side down to the opposite side of the grill that doesn't have the heat on.
Step 4
Smoke the fish for 2-2 1/2 hours until the skin has taken on an amber color and the flesh is cooked through.
Step 5
Transfer the fish to a baking sheet and let cool to room temperature. While it cools, prepare the Fresh Cilantro (3 tablespoon). Finely dice the Jalapeño Pepper (2).
Step 6
Remove the skin from the fish and discard.
Step 7
Add chunks of the fish to a food processor and pulse 1 to 2 times.
Step 8
Add the Mayonnaise (1 cup), chopped cilantro, zest of the Lemon (1), juice of half the lemon, finely diced jalapenos, Salt (1/2 teaspoon) and Ground White Pepper (1/2 teaspoon).
Step 9
Pulse several more times until the dip is smooth. Transfer the dip to a food storage container and refrigerate overnight for the flavors to marry.
Step 10
Serve with crackers and Pickled Onions (to taste), Jalapeño Pepper (to taste) and Fresh Cilantro (to taste) for garnish.
