Smoked salmon dip may not hold up well to freezing. Freezing a smoked fish dip can be a viable method of storing the dip for later use, but the success will depend on the dip ingredients. Typically, smoked fish dips are made with mayonnaise, sour cream or cream cheese. In general, none of these products holds up well to freezing.
