Pecan Salmon Roll

Recipe by  

"This is a wonderful spread for crackers. I make it ahead of time and then bring it out before dinner is served. My guests love it, and there is usually nothing left. Easy and quick with just the right amount of spice. Also not very fishy, which is surprising. Definitely a favorite."

I have taken this to parties many times and it is always a winner. The only ingredient that I add is liquid smoke. It really gives it a "smoked salmon" flavor.

So disappointing. Impossible to roll into a log or ball, even tho it had been chilled overnite. End rsult, I mounded it in a bowl and sprinkled nuts and parsley over the top. Flavor was not very exciting either, tasted like tuna salad. Will not make again.

Added cayenne pepper in with the nuts and parsley. Sprinkled it around the edge of the dish, also. Everyone loved it!

I make almost an identical spread except I use smoked salmon and omit the pecans and parsley - same goes for this dip - there is never any left!! I will have to try the pecans/parsley next time. I believe if you don't have fresh smoked salmon you can use canned salmon and liquid smoke.

A dash of smoke is a good idea. Pack this into a fish-shaped mold lined with plastic wrap. chill overnight. for an ultra-elegant presentation, slice 1 small cucumber paper thin,(slice blade of processor) Make overlapping "scales" on top. A bit of olive or pimento makes the eye.

Made this for my husbands office party. Everyone loved it. I had requests for the recipe. Every year I make recipes I find on this site. When people tell me I'm such a good cook. I always tell them 'it's easy, just go to allrecipes. :)

for the holiday I decorated it with cranmberries and people loved the cranberry with the dip! It was awesome and very easy. It looks like a very difficult recipe.
