Smoked fish dishes are popular with Ashkenazi Jews. A family member served this easy pareve(neutral, non-dairy) spread at a backyard BBQ this summer and I loved it. It’s so easy, great to serve all year round, would be great as an “noshable” (appetizer) for the upcoming Jewish holiday of Rosh Hashanah. You can add or reduce the seasonings based on your taste.
