Slightly Savory Saturday

Ever want something savory to munch on while you are watching tv or on a road trip?   Today’s recipe might be the ticket for your craving.  It was always our oldest son Micah’s favorite snack growing up and if I want to make him happy I will mix up a batch and send it to him.  It can be a bit salty so to  try to reduce the salt content feel free to use unsalted popcorn, nuts  and low salt pretzels.


Fish Snack Mix

  • 3 cups popped pocorn
  • 2 cups small pizza flavored fish shaped crackers
  • 2 cups cheese flavored square crackers
  • 2 cups pretzel sticks or shapes
  • 2 cups oyster crackers
  • 1 1/2 cups unsalted mixed nuts or peanuts
  • 1 0.4 ounce package buttermilk salad dressing mix
  • 1 tsp dried dillweed
  • 1/3 cup oil—I usually use canola

Mix all the ingredients EXCEPT the oil together in a large bowl until thoroughly combined.  Drizzle with oil and mix well.  Place in an airtight container or ziplock bag to store.  Store up to a week—-if it lasts that long!


  1. CH is a huge snacker and he would so love this!
    Good Morning!

    Sounds amazing!

  3. This stuff is amazing, addicting and even better when it comes out of Beth Ann’s kitchen!

  4. I always do stuff like this for the kids. I call it a Snack Party – and they go crazy for it. Currently they love the smores based one with mini marshmallows, golden grahams cereal, chocolate chips, and I throw in some peanuts or almonds for protein. Maybe even some dried banana for fun. Soooo yummy.

    This looks and sounds good, Beth Ann. I’m not a big fan of dill, though. Do you think if would be ok without it?

  6. Thanks for sharing!!

  7. I’m sure that my Hubby would scarf that down!

    Thanks for another way to make a snack. We do like our snacks, don’t we?

  9. Yum! This has everything I like in it. Maybe I’ll make some for our day road trip to pick out a tree on Wed.

  10. Mmmmm, sounds yummy!


  1. […] This drive in features two movie screens on opposite sides of the sprawling parking lot that show a pair of movies, back-to-back. The employee listed our film choices of cars, robots and apes so we chose apes, of course! We brought plenty of treats including Del’s popcorn the Chamber had left in our hotel room and Beth’s addictive Fish Snack Mix. […]
