I’m not sure what put me in the mood to make this smoked salmon cream cheese dip 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 carber 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 cream cheese dip for a party too.
salmon cream cheese dip ingredients
For this recipe I used canned wild salmon, cream cheese, liquid smoke, lemon juice and green onions.
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.
Salmon cream cheese Dip Recipe
- Start by adding the green onions to a food processor and chop them real fine.
- Make sure there are no bones in the canned salmon. If you have bones, take them all out before adding to the food processor.
- Add the rest of the ingredients and process on high until nice and creamy. That’s it!
What low carb foods to eat with this dip
I like to eat this cream cheese dip with celery but my mom used to eat it with crackers. Below are some of the low carb foods you can eat with this smoked salmon spread.
- raw vegetables like celery, carrots, peppers, cucumbers
- low carb crackers like Mary’s Gone Crackers
- low carb flatbread or bagels
I bought a big box of Mary’s Gone Crackers and they are pictured below. They are an acquired taste for some but I really like them because they are low in carbs, gluten free and a good source of omega 3s. The herb flavored is my favorite!
