After making this Homemade Smoked Salmon Spread recipe, you’ll never purchase it from the store again …ever.
In the past, whenever I was feeling wealthy, I’d pick up a small tub of Whole Foods Smoked Salmon Spread. Always a treat and considered an indulgence. But thanks to Larry over at Big Dude’s Eclectic Ramblings, I can have my cake and eat it too with this delicious home-made salmon spread. It yielded twice the amount for less than half the cost.
I served this at our Super Bowl Party and upon first bite my friend Cauleen exclaimed, “This is delicious…is it Ina’s recipe?” I simply replied, “Actually no, it’s Larry’s“. In a blink of an eye, and no questions asked, Larry became one of those famous chef’s that are referred to on first name basis. Well, at least famous in our house…and on that day…and for probably 8 seconds. Let’s take a look.
With softened cream cheese, this comes together in a jif. And everyone who tried it at our party, took the time to comment on how good it was. Although Larry smoked his own salmon for this recipe, I just picked up a package of smoked salmon at the grocery store. Can you imagine how good it would be if you took the time to smoke your own?
Once you try this recipe, you'll never buy store bought again.
