Whitefish salad is delightful on everything from bagels to cucumber slices. The smoked flavor of the delicate fish is delicious on its own, and doesn't need much more than a little mayonnaise and lemon juice.

This recipe is from Encyclopedia of Jewish Food by Gil Marks (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2010), and was originally published in the South Florida Sun Sentinel.
