Smoked salmon spread

Smoked salmon spread

We are opening our concert of Brahms’ Ein Deutches Requiem today.  I offered to bring something for the post-show reception.  This smoked salmon spread is easy to make and sounds and tastes a lot more expensive than it is.  If you’d like to make a salmon party ball, simply double the amount of drained salmon, chill the mixture, form it into a ball and roll it in the chopped parsley and double the amount of nuts, wrap in plastic wrap and chill an additional 1 hour before serving.

  • ¼ cup walnut meats
  • 2 cup parsley leaves only
  • 1 tbsp grated onion
  • 1 8-oz package of light cream cheese
  • ½ tsp liquid smoke
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 6-oz can good quality salmon, drained

In a food processor, using the chopping blade, chop nuts and set them aside.  Chop parsley and set it aside,  Put onion, cream cheese, liquid smoke, Dijon mustard and lemon juice in the food processor and process until smooth, scraping the sides of the bowl occasionally.  Add salmon and process again until just mixed in.  Scrape the contents into a serving bowl and top with chopped parsley and nuts.  Provide a knife for spreading.  Serve with crackers.
