I have made this for several years. The only difference is that I add 1/2 tsp. or so of liquid smoke. I prepare 2 or 3 batches and put into a plastic wrap lined fish mold. Refrigerate for several hours then turn out onto a platter and decorate with sliced almonds for the fins and pimentos & olives for face features. you can get real creative and make a beautiful display for an appetizer table. Serve with crackers

Tried it with smoked salmon. You can't go wrong with cream cheese and smoked salmon. Next time I am going to work in some capers.

Very nice spread. I would recommend placing all of the ingredients in a food processor to make the pate as smooth as possible.

One word describes~~~EXCELLENT~~ Do try to add some liquid smoke. They will think you spent all day in the kitchen.. My guest couldn't get enough & I had to give out the recipe. Thanks!

This is excellent ? I have a similar recipe and the only change is adding liquid smoke, just 1 tsp. does it. I put it in bowl with crackers around the plate and it is always a hit. I have used it for a filling for petite sandwiches. Make sure you buy the boneless salmon in a can.

I used 4oz of smoked salmon and added in 1tsp of capers too to kick it up a notch. Wonderful!! Easy to prepare in a food prcessor and do in advance.

I took this dip to a family Christmas was a hit. My father n law "the chef" raved about it...a great compliment! I took the advice of other's, and added liquid smoke and crushed red peppers. I used fat free cream cheese. I served this in a bread bowl...made a great presentation! Thanks for sharing!
