White Fish Blend has a new name: Bar Harbor Blend.
This blend contains no fish, but tastes excellent on seafood. White Fish Seasoning combines onion, garlic, lemon, dill, and peppercorns. Excellent with chicken, potatoes, tomato based products, sour cream, cream sauces, and of course all fish.

All these things are good with fish and seafood, but also compliment chicken, cucumbers, smoked salmon, turkey, and white sauces.
