We have some great cooks in our family.
We like to try new recipes and tweak the old ones.
We're always asking each other, "Can I have your recipe?"
So we created a place to share the recipes that others ask for, the experiments that turn out well or the recipes that we fall back on because they're quick and yummy. Some of these recipes are original, some are gleaned from friends and some are blatantly copied from other sources.
All of them have been tested and found delicious.

Northwest Smoked Salmon Spread

(print this recipe)
This is a recipe that Sharon found on the side of a cracker box. It has a delicious fresh taste!

5 – 6 ounces hard smoked salmon (Sharon used the softer, filleted kind)
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 garlic clove, crushed
2 tablespoons green onion, finely minced
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/3 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons fresh dill, minced (.66 oz. = 2 T)
pinch of cayenne pepper
pinch freshly ground black pepper

Cream together cream cheese, garlic, green onion and lemon juice. Add sour cream and blend together thoroughly. Finely shred the smoked salmon and add to the cream cheese mixture, blending until salmon appears as pink flecks and cheese is smooth. Stir in dill, cayenne and black pepper. Chill 6 – 8 hours for richest flavor.

Makes 2 cups

I think it's funny that it's "Northwest" when the recipe came from California.
