After our successful salmon fishing last weekend, my nephew, Jay, marinated and smoked some salmon filets in his electric smoker.
While I can sit right down with a plate of smoked salmon in front of me and be perfectly content, I sacrificed some for a dip. A dip with smoked salmon, cream cheese and sour cream.
How to make Smoked Salmon Dip: Printable
Break up about 12 ounces of smoked salmon.
Beat together 8 ounces cream cheese and 8 ounces sour cream. Beat in the smoked salmon.
Fold in about 4 ounces shredded cheddar cheese.
Break out the crackers and enjoy!!!!
Then I made up salmon patties! The smoked flavor coming through in the patties is just wonderful!
I used the recipe for my Salmon Patty Bites, but left out the seasonings since the fish was smoked. Then I just fried them on my cast iron skillet with just a little olive oil.
I really need to build my own smoker! We have the wood grill, but it takes a lot of wood to smoke anything…to much ventilation. Today I started building my own version of an electric smoker–finding things out in the garage and around the house. Stay tuned next week for the how-to make your own electric smoker!
