Salmon Dip

"From Australian Woman's Day magazine. Suggested you serve with baguette toasts and or cornichons (small gherkins). Servings are a guess but makes 1 1/2 cups. I have also made this using Philadelphia ultra low fat cream cheese and it went over very well."

Made for the FYC Tag Game @ FF&F - Siggi & I plus our family & friends love smoked salmon, but he cannot eat it now due to diet issues post kidney transplant. I know your recipe uses canned salmon, but that would be seen as a "sin" in Iceland & it's not sold here anyway. So I've been on a mission to find recipes using fresh salmon so we can all enjoy salmon together. Using fresh salmon chg'd the recipe a little for me. The mellow flavor of fresh salmon meant reducing the amt of lemon juice plus adding salt & pepper to be perfect for us & our game night guests. Using less lemon juice also made the consistency more of a spread than a dip, so it was served w/crackers & lightly buttered crostini. We seriously enjoyed this recipe, Pat, & Siggi didn't feel excluded so it met all my goals. Thx for sharing it w/us.

Daily Inspiration

Made this tasty dip today for snacking. Made as directed except that I used a bit more cream cheese and dill. I also added a little garlic salt and cayenne. Great with crackers.

This was very tasty and a nice departure from traditional flavored dips. I used a whipped cream cheese, which made it nice and light. I wasn't sure what the cream was, so I used heavy cream, which I hope was correct. The lemon really brightens this up. It also would make a nice sandwich filling as well!
