    +1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
    +2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives
    +2 teaspoons capers, drained

    Place crumbled trout and softened cream cheese in a bowl. Add lemon juice, dill, chives, capers, horseradish, black pepper, salt, and cayenne pepper. Mix together with a fork until mixture achieves the chunkiness or creaminess you prefer. Transfer to a ramekin; wrap with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 2 or 3 hours before serving to let flavors develop.

    N.B. The ideal amount of salt, acidity, and heat are very subjective. Equal proportions of cream cheese and smoked trout is a good starting point, but everything else should be added "to taste."
