took to a party last night and it was gobbled immediately...very good. I added a bit more heavy cream, beat with mixer and folded in ingredients. I let it sit most of the day and the flavors were blended well. Big hit! Read More

The spread was very good, however I would use half or less of the capers. Too much pickle flavor. Read More

Ok I made several changes. Being from Seattle we eat Seafood like 4 days a week. I used chives instead of green onions, 1/8 cup whipping cream, 1/8 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce, 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper instead of hot pepper sauce. I followed the process and took it to a bbq and it was a hit! Read More

I gave this all five stars because the final product is great! But, my personal taste prefered a little variation on the methodology. I felt that if you added all the wet ingredients and mixed them until smooth and creamy, then add half the salmon blend to incorporate and then fold in the rest of the ingredients, it helps to keep the salmon in the spotlight on your pallet. Oh and rinse and rough chop the capers. (Great with almond gluten free crackers) Read More

This definitely is "the best" smoked salmon spread- or mousse- or whatever you'd like to call it. I've been making another one for years, but the addition of capers is incredible. I was a bit short on cream cheese (about an ounce),so I made up the difference with sour cream. I also added about 1.5oz more smoked salmon that I had on hand. Very rich and great on crackers. Thanks...... Update: I have made this several times, learning to add all the ingredients "to taste", and always adding some sour cream because I enjoyed that flavor. Very easy and versatile recipe that can't be messed up. Read More

Was a little too rich to eat a lot on bagels so I ended up with left overs...but worked really well spread thinly on raw puff pastry dough, rolled up, sliced and baked and served as appetizers... Read More

This was great! It truly is a super way to stretch that precious smoked salmon. We drove to AK this summer and hubby filled our RV freezer with sockeye. We smoked for the first time and it was really good but given 34hours of effort you don't want to waist it. This stretched the salmon but allowed the flavor to shine. Read More
