eat: smoked salmon spread

My friend Patrycia has introduced me to three things I can’t live without: Clinique’s Lash Doubling Mascara, baked grapefruit with brown sugar and this delish smoked salmon spread.

If you like smoked salmon, you’re going to fall in complete culinary lust with this tasty vittle. It’s easy to make and a great dish to bring to a friend’s BBQ or baby shower.

I like eating it slathered on a piece of crusty French bread, standing in my kitchen. But you may want to share it. And sit down. (;


  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup of mayonnaise
  • 3 green onions + additional for garnish, chopped
  • 1 (4 1/2-ounce) package smoked BBQ salmon tips, skin removed & chopped
    (Safeway tends to carry it on a regular basis)
  • Juice of a whole lemon
  • A dash or two of Worcestershire sauce


In a bowl, blend cream cheese, mayonnaise and Worcestershire sauce until completely smooth. Add chopped onions and then gently stir in smoked salmon until well blended. Once the salmon is incorporated, squeeze the juice of a whole fresh lemon into the spread and mix.

Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until mixture is completely chilled. When ready, sprinkle with chopped green onions and serve with crackers, baguette slices, endive spears or cucumber slices.  

(Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days)


Happy weekending peeps! And a happy Victoria Day long weekend to my Canadian friends!

Over the next few days, I'm going to do my best to make a dent in my Adirondack chair project, plant some dahlias and visit Anthro. I love long weekends!



  1. It looks delish...but I've never tried Smoked Salmon spread before?! I might need to live on the "wild" side and try some ;)

    I see you've made the recipe your own; I'll have to try it with mayo and Wort. sauce. Sounds yummy.

    Carol - thanks again for the bloggy award! It's my first - yippee! :) And I think you're going to just love this spread - simple & delish!

    P - Welcome! I added the mayo to make it easier to spread and the Wort.sauce just adds that je-ne-sais-quoi. :)
