Savory Salmon Dip

November 26, 2009

Dips are great party dishes. They tend to be inexpensive, you can dress them up as elegant appetizers for fancy parties or keep ’em real for parties that require finger foods, and they’re soooooo addictive.

Here’s a quick and easy appetizer dish that takes about 15 minutes to make, tops. You can take it to Thanksgiving, holiday parties or just make it for yourself & feast on it for a few days. I made the mistake of planning ahead for our Thanksgiving meal contrbutions and made this today. There may or may not be any left over for tomorrow’s Thanksgiving feast…oops. Tomorrow I’ll be making our famous pear & apple crisp (you’ve heard of it, right?) and honey apricot baked brie. Recipes for those dishes are forthcoming.

salmon dip

8 oz whipped cream cheese

1 tablespoon lemon juice

3 tablespoons fresh finely chopped dill

4-6 oz salmon fillet

salt & pepper

1. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet or frying pan over medium heat

2. Sprinkle salmon on both sides with salt & pepper, and also 1 tablespoon of dill

3. Cook salmon over medium heat until cooked (center is no longer rubbery dark pink). Be careful not to overcook the fillet.

4. In the meantime, in a medium bowl, mix the lemon juice, remaining 2 tablespoons of dill, salt and pepper in with the cream cheese until well blended. Taste as you blend, and feel free to add more salt, pepper, lemon juice or dill according to your taste.

5. Once salmon is fully cooked, remove from heat and crumble or chop into tiny bits and fold into the cream cheese mixture until well blended.

serving ideas

1. Serve in a bowl alongside crackers or small rye bread squares

2. Serve by the tablespoonful onto individual rye bread squares or crackers, top with a small spring of dill and a couple of capers for an elegant presentation.
