This low carb smoky salmon spread is a tasty snack you can eat with fresh veggies or crackers. It only takes minutes to make.I’m not sure what put me in the mood to make this smoky salmon spread but I was Jonesin’ for it. It was something that my mom made, and not that often, but I really liked it when she did. And now that I’m a low carb freak I thought this would be a great snack or lunch for me. There is not much too it, just salmon, cream cheese, liquid smoke and a few other things, but it’s really tasty. It would be a nice spread for a party too.
For this recipe I used canned wild salmon, however next time I make this I’m going to use some leftovers from our brined smoked salmon. I think it will be even better with that. No need for the liquid smoke too. Just whizz the ingredients in your food processor and you’re done. I like to eat it with celery but my mom used to eat it with crackers. Below I have some Mary’s Gone Crackers (affiliate link) crackers. They are an acquired taste for some but if I really like them. They are pretty low in carb, gluten free and a good source of omega 3s. I bought a huge box of them from Costco.
