I got this recipe from my mother and have taken it to a number of potlucks. It always receives raves. Even non-salmon lovers like this appetizer.

This is delicious. I used 16 oz of drained pink salmon liquid smoke in place of the worcestershire sauce and minced yellow onion instead of green onions. I didn't roll it in walnuts or parsley I just plopped it in a pretty serving bowl as a spread and sprinkled a little dill on top. I served it surrounded with an assortment of crackers crudites and cocktail rye bread-which is really yummy with this! Read More

Think this recipe would have been much better with smoked salmon and probably about 10 ounces also will add some garlic powder when I try this again. Read More

This is a fantastic appetizer for holiday or non holiday occasions. My friends enjoy it so much that they request I bring it to get togethers both formal and casual. If the gathering is large this recipe can be doubled & looks great as an extra large ball on a bigger platter with a large assortment of crackers. A Read More

I've added 1/2 envelope unflavored geletin (dissolved in 1/4 cup boiling water) to this and pressed it into a small fish-shaped geletin mold. The texture is a little more like a Pate'. It makes a great presentation at events that I cator! Just remember to coat the pan liberally with nonstick spray and chill completely before removing it from the pan. Read More

I made this in large quantity (x8) for an Arts fundraiser. I served it as a spread in a bowl instead of as a ball along with crackers and sliced cucumbers. I used smoked chipotle tabasco and omitted the nuts and parsley. It was a huge hit and so many people asked me for the recipe! Will definately add this to my "tried and true" list for parties.

This is one of the best dips I've ever made (I didn't roll it into a ball but used it as a dip). I omitted the walnuts and used a dill/mustard combination instead of horseradish (didn't have any). I served it with crackers and was gone by the end of the night. Try this recipe!! Read More

This is a wonderful appetizer. No small praise from the people living here on the Kenai River where we catch the Largest King Salmon in the world! The horseradish and hot sauce add just the right bite. Read More
