About this recipe: This is a delicious lower-fat version of smoked salmon cream cheese spread. With lemon, capers, dill and chives it is bound to be a crowd-pleasing nibble. Serve with crackers or toasted baguette.
To make moreish canapes, spread the chilled spread onto crackers of choice, or even toasted baguette. Dot with capers over the top of each, and sprinkle with chopped fresh dill.
A smoked salmon plate is often found on restaurant breakfast menus and is traditionally served with a bagel, cream cheese, thinly sliced tomato and onion, finely chopped hard-boiled egg and...capers, which add just a little piquant tanginess. So the addition of capers in this spread is a natural, as is the dill. However, 2 T. of dill is just way too much. I used 1 T. and it was still too artificially green and "dilly." I used fresh chives and would have preferred fresh dill too (the market didn't have any that day). All in all, the spread was good, but not great. The final word is, definitely include the capers, use fresh chives, fresh dill and a lot less of it, and this spread will be much improved, both in taste and appearance. - 14 Jan 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I made this for a BBQ and it was a hit. The only alterations I made to the recipe was omitting the capers. I found that the saltiness of the capers and salmon can be a bit much. Otherwise, great quick and easy recipe. I'll definately make it again. - 29 Jun 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
