Hello, welcome to Rada’s test kitchen, today we’re going to be making a salmon spread. It’s something you can put on crackers, you can keep it in a little bowl for a small get-together, people can spread it on crackers, pita chips, or whatever, really. For our ingredients we have garlic salt, cream cheese, some really good home smoked salmon, some sour cream, some fresh parsley, some fresh dill. Real simple. We can add citric acid, lemon juice, many different things, but we’re trying to keep it as simple as possible because the flavor is really going to come out from the salmon and the dill. We’ll go ahead and get started by whipping this together.

We’ll put room temperature cream cheese in there. Sour cream. If you have a mixer, you can do it in the mixer or by hand. I got about 80% incorporated there but I want to be able to continue to whisk it with the salmon in there. I’m going to chop up my herbs real quick, a fairly rough chop. Dill really sets it off. The parsley does add flavor and good color. The salmon, this one in particular has some skin on it. We’re just going to take that out.

It’s firm, so to give us an assist in breaking that up, we’re just going to chop it up a little bit. It’s definitely important to use quality salmon. If you are to go out and buy the lower end stuff what I do is try to dry it out in the oven because it’s kind of packaged into moisture whether it’s oil or a saline solution of some sort. This reminds me of my childhood.

A really important part to this is adding garlic salt to it. Bring out that flavor. Add some savory to it. Going to add some fresh garlic to it, too.

That’s really good. Super simple. I didn’t add citric acid because the sour I’m getting from the sour cream is nice as it is. It’s very delicate. I’m going to go ahead and cut the tomato. Some people cut the base last, I cut it first. And this point right there you want at the edge of your skin. What we do is just twist it up and it makes a tomato rose.

So I made the salmon spread, did the rose as a garnish with a little bit of fresh dill. You can serve it in a bowl, or serve it on toast or bread. You can serve it with crackers, but this is a very simple, delicious dip, good for get-togethers or just a little appetizer for the family. Thank you for watching!
