Smoked Salmon Dip Recipe
Smoked salmon! Who doesn’t love smoked salmon?!
Allow me to let you in on a secret: I have 2 vegetarian friends who avoid meat and fish at all costs… But smoked salmon? Both of them can’t say no to smoked salmon!
Are you a fan of smoked fish? I’ve made quite a few smoked fish recipes for my blog. How about my summer lunch salad with smoked salmon, avocado and kiwifruit! More into a winter treat? Then try out my thick and smooth broad bean and pea soup with smoked salmon! And here is another one, a smoked salmon starter that I usually make for Easter lunch: my smoked salmon terrine! Maybe you like my au gratin smoked salmon, boiled egg and white sauce more?
Back to my smoked salmon appetizer again!
You can easily leave the tomato paste and lemon juice out if you’re not sure about it. I just added both to give this smoked fish dip just that extra fresh flavor and color. And because of that this salmon dip tastes great all year round, whether you serve it in the summer or winter.
I have made a similar salmon dip with canned salmon before. And that was also a big hit! I love to serve fish dips with crostini and fresh celery.
Do you love fish dips? Then also check out my my grilled mackerel rillettes! That one is also ready in under 10 minutes, just like this creamy smoked salmon dip below.
