  1. Drain and flake the salmon into a bowl; reserve 1 teaspoon of the salmon liquid. In another bowl, mash the cream cheese, liquid smoke flavor, and the reserved salmon liquid until thoroughly combined; stir in the green onion and horseradish. Gently mix with the flaked salmon, and refrigerate at least 2 hours. If desired, form the spread into a ball, and roll in chopped parsley.

This is nicer looking if it is shaped into a log, and rolled in very finely chopped pecans or walnuts. also, be sure to use white horseradish, not red. and i double the recipe to 2 cans of salmon and 8 oz pkg of cream cheese.

Maybe I didn't do something right but it ended up tasting like a really bad tuna salad

I started my career in food service 30 years ago in a fine dining establishment. I was looking for something different to do with fresh salmon and recognized this recipe as one we used as an appetizer, that I had forgotten about. I don't understand why the low ratings because this was more popular than any other appetizer we offered. The only change I made was to bake fresh salmon and then use my hand chopper to finely chop the onion and salmon before mixing everything together. I think that will make a difference in blending the smoke and other ingredients into a salmon lovers dream dish that is beyond perfect for any special occasion. I also would recommend doubling the recipe to make sure there is enough to go around. Thank you Shuffcow, for a blast from my past!

To much salmon and not enought cream cheese also I would use canned smoked salmon instead of plain canned salmon and liquid smoke

This was yummy and I don't even care for salmon! I just added a few finely chopped scallions the mix. Outta sight!

I liked it but my husband kept calling it tuna dip because he didn't make it and it did taste more like tuna than salmon in this recipe.
