1 (7 ounce) can
salmon, drained and flaked
1 (8 ounce) package
cream cheese, softened
finely chopped green onions
hot pepper sauce
chopped fresh parsley
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!
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.
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+
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.
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.
UPDATE: I get the best flavor and results from BBQ'D fresh salmon. My family always request I bring this to all our gatherings.I made this cheese ball for Christmas and it was huge hit! I have already made it again since Christmas. I rate this an A ++++++++++++ Thanks for sharing Karen
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!!
I brought this to a friends house one night when we were going to have a girl's night and chat..Let me tell you this was OUT OF THIS WORLD!! Both her and I thought this was incredible! Very easy to make and sooo tasty. I can't wait to make this for when my brother comes up to visit. Thanks!!!
