took to a party last night and it was gobbled immediately...very good. I added a bit more heavy cream, beat with mixer and folded in ingredients. I let it sit most of the day and the flavors were blended well. Big hit!

Went over great at the party. I used some salmon roe to garnish and some sourdough crackers.

Was a little too rich to eat a lot on bagels so I ended up with left overs...but worked really well spread thinly on raw puff pastry dough, rolled up, sliced and baked and served as appetizers...

This was great! It truly is a super way to stretch that precious smoked salmon. We drove to AK this summer and hubby filled our RV freezer with sockeye. We smoked for the first time and it was really good, but given 34hours of effort you don't want to waist it. This stretched the salmon but allowed the flavor to shine.

Terrific! Made the recipe exactly as listed. I was worried that the dip may be too salty, as I used smoked salmon that I smoked and it is pretty salty. Even with the capers, the dip was great. Everyone loved it.

So good! I blended everything then folded in the salmon so it stayed chunky.

Yummy! I didn't have capers (so I left them out) although I realize they probably kicked the flavor up another notch. But, we still loved it!
