Smoked Salmon Spread

This is a quick and easy recipe for party food. It is easy to scale up for large gathering. I like the mix of smoke, dill, citrus and chives melded with the creaminess of cream cheese. It has always been a hit every time I have served it.


  • ½ Lb Smoked Salmon without skin (Copper River is best)
  • ½ Lb Cream Cheese softened
  • 1 Tablespoon Dill Weed dried
  • 1 Tablespoon Chives fresh chopped
  • 1 Teaspoon Lemon Zest finely grated
  • ½ Teaspoon White Pepper fresh round
  • ½ Teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
  • ½ Tablespoon Cayenne Pepper
  1. Place the cream cheese in a bowl and whip till it is loose.
  2. Add the dry ingredients including the lemon zest and chives, mix well.
  3. Flake the salmon and combine with the cheese mixture. Be careful to not lose the texture of the salmon.
  4. Cover the spread and refrigerate it for at least an hour, overnight is best.
  5. Serve with small slices of rye bread or your favorite crackers.
