Smoked Salmon Spread
« on: April 24, 2013, 09:52:00 AM »
Had a family get together this last weekend, so I decided to make some of my Smoked Salmon Spread.  Decided to use Kummok's recipe, so I got 6 lbs of skin-on Norwegian farm raised salmon from a local market.  Mixed up the basic brine and let it rest overnight in the fridge for 12 hours:

After brining, I let the salmon air dry for 8 hours until a nice pelicle formed.  Cooked for 7 hours, with 5 hours of hickory smoke.  Here is the final product  8)

Ready to mix up my spread.  Ingredients are:

12 oz Smoked Salmon
8 oz Cream Cheese
4 oz Sour Cream
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh Chives
4 cloves Garlic
1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper
Salt and Pepper to taste

Mix it up, let it rest for a few hours, then serve to hungry people  ;D

Received lots and lots of compliments.  Best part is I have plenty of delicious smoked salmon left over!

Thanks Kummok!

If you like your salmon spread a little spicier, add some Tabasco. We use basically the same recipe with Tabasco added.
Life is short, eat the dessert first!
