Susan's Smokey Salmon Ball

Recipe by  

"Salmon lovers and those who like non-traditional cheese balls will enjoy this nice appetizer. Finely chopped nuts or parsley may be substituted for cracker crumbs. Great for cocktail parties, showers, and family get-togethers. You can roll the finished ball in finely crushed pecans, slivered almonds, or finely minced parsley as you wish."

Very bland, even added cayenne and extra capers.

This was good, but I do think 'something' is missing. May try this again and play around w/ it a bit when I have more time. Thanks for sharing. :)

This is wonderful! The liquid smoke is the secret. I added a little sour cream also. I made it into a ball and rolled in nuts for texture. This cleaned up right away, will make a double batch next time.
