This is a wonderful spread for crackers. I make it ahead of time and then bring it out before dinner is served. My guests love it, and there is usually nothing left. Easy and quick with just the right amount of spice. Also not very fishy, which is surprising. Definitely a favorite.

I have taken this to parties many times and it is always a winner. The only ingredient that I add is liquid smoke. It really gives it a "smoked salmon" flavor. Read More

So disappointing. Impossible to roll into a log or ball even tho it had been chilled overnite. End rsult I mounded it in a bowl and sprinkled nuts and parsley over the top. Flavor was not very exciting either tasted like tuna salad. Will not make again. Read More

I make almost an identical spread except I use smoked salmon and omit the pecans and parsley - same goes for this dip - there is never any left!! I will have to try the pecans/parsley next time. I believe if you don't have fresh smoked salmon you can use canned salmon and liquid smoke. Read More

A dash of smoke is a good idea. Pack this into a fish-shaped mold lined with plastic wrap. chill overnight. for an ultra-elegant presentation slice 1 small cucumber paper thin (slice blade of processor) Make overlapping "scales" on top. A bit of olive or pimento makes the eye. Read More

Wonderful!! I had no trouble rolling this as I used saran wrap to roll it and then refrigerated it. After I pulled it out of the fridge I then rolled it in the pecans. Very simple. Had a great flavour and everyone enjoyed it. I will definately make this again and again!! Read More
