How to Make a Salmon Sandwich Spread | The Cupboard Drawer Recipe Book
Here is a great Salmon Spread recipe from “The Cupboard Drawer’. Folks who know me know I’m not a big fish lover or sandwich spread lover in general, (give me Salami and Cheese please), but I know many, many folks do love chicken, tuna and various sorts of ‘salad’ spreads. So with the holiday party season looming, I would be remiss as a host if I did not take the time to make things I know will please my guests, even though I would not do it solely for myself. This recipe also lends itself to making canopies that will be sure to please even the most discriminating palate.
8 oz Cream Cheese, softened
1 Can Salmon, drained and flaked
¼ Cup Milk
1 tbsp Lemon Juice
½ tsp Dried Dill Weed
1/8 tsp ground Red Cayenne Pepper
1 tbsp capers drained / for canopies spread substitute Caviar
- In a blender, process the Cream Cheese, Salmon, Milk, Lemon Juice, Dill, and Pepper until smooth (not runny)
- Turn mixture into a bowl and stir in Capers
Yield 2 Cups of Spread
For Canopies Spread: After Step 1. Put in a Wiltons Frosting Bag and with a #4 round tip put the spread on crackers of your choice (I use Ritz) then top with capers or Caviar. If you really want to get fancy do a second layer with a cheese spread (recommend Sharp Cheddar) with a #2 Star Tip, as a topper, then a teenie drizzle of Caviar.
A note on the Caviar: Connoisseurs will be hollerin’ bout messing up good caviar with all this stuff, but you are few and far in between. For the Host you do not need to go out and get $100.00 an Ounce Caviar to do this with; (unless you really want too) find the less expensive, When your guests ask about those great treats, you can impress when you tell them it’s all in the Caviar blah blah blah…..Do Enjoy.
