Habanero Hot Smoked Oyster Dip

Posted by Ekone on Jan 12th 2024

This craveable dip gets a double dose of our Habanero Hot Oysters; first, they are finely chopped and folded into the dip, then the dip itself is adorned with more whole smoked oysters.

Serves 4


2 tins Ekone Habanero Hot Oysters

2 tablespoons finely minced shallot, from approximately 1 small shallot

1 tablespoon lemon juice

Sea salt and ground black pepper to season

½ cup cream cheese

2 tablespoons mayonnaise

1 tablespoon capers, roughly chopped

¼ cup finely chopped dill, plus a few fronds to garnish

2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley

Dash hot sauce

Crackers to serve


Finely chop the contents of one tin of oysters.

Add the minced shallots, lemon juice, and a small pinch of salt to a bowl. Set aside to macerate for at least 5 minutes. Add the cream cheese, mayonnaise, capers, chopped herbs, and chopped oysters to the bowl. Mix well to combine, then season with a pinch each of salt and pepper. Taste for seasoning and adjust if needed.

Add the dip to your favorite serving bowl. Using the back of a large spoon, create a shallow well in the center of the dip. Nestle in the whole oysters from the reserved tin, and garnish the dip with a few sprigs of dill and another grind of black pepper. Enjoy with crackers.
