Smoked Salmon Spread Tips

  • Make sure to blend smoked fish first. Then add the rest of ingredients. That’s why the fish will break up nicely. I used Ninja Blender and it worked great.
  • If preferred, use dry dill instead of fresh.
  • The salmon spread can be served with any type of crackers or tortilla chips. Great on a bread too.
  • If required, add more salt. The salmon might be salty enough.

Is it a dip or a spread? It is great for dipping but great for spreading on piece of bread too.

Can I use sour cream instead of greek yogurt? Yes, use the same amount of the sour cream.

Do I have to add mayo? Don’t add any mayonnaise to this recipe. It is not needed.

Can I make it without cream cheese? Yes, just omit the cream cheese in this recipe.
