These are a cute and fresh idea for an appetizer or as a pretty addition to a festive vegetable tray. I used to steam the pea pods, but this uncooked method yields a nicer look without all the fuss.

Instructions Checklist

  • Mix cream cheese, smoked salmon, garlic salt, and pepper in a bowl until smooth. Spoon salmon mixture into a pastry bag fitted with a star tip. Pipe mixture into the center of each snow pea pod, creating a scalloped edge. Sprinkle dill weed over cream cheese filling.

Cook's Note:

I have made these without the salmon with great results too. You can also change up the herbs or spices to taste. They look cute with a tiny shrimp or fresh peas as a garnish.

Although the salmon mixture was very good the process of stuffing each and every one of the pea pods was tedious at best. Going forward I wouldn't hesitate to make the Salmon dip but will serve it with pea pods peppers and assorted crackers. Read More

Adorable presentation. Truly stunning. I used sugar snap peas. Fresh dill sprinkled on before adding the peas back enhances the flavor and appearance more than dried dill in my opinion. Thank you for posting! Read More

Used sugar snaps since they are a bit plumper. They were a big hit at Easter dinner as an appetizer! Read More

Labor intensive but end result impressive. Liked putting fresh dill inside of pod before salmon spread. I would make again for a small group not up for a wedding.! Read More

These are a hit! Time consuming to make but for crafters it is fun! A fun project together with kids too. They are delicious and healthy and here's a cost-cutting tip: use plain salmon in the envelopes you can buy for 1 in the canned fish aisle and just add 8-10 drops of bottled smoke flavoring! Yummy! I had these for our Easter dinner appetizer made the night before and covered. Read More
