Thanksgiving Salmon Appetizers

Looking for a way to spice up Thanksgiving this year?  How about adding a little salmon into your Thanksgiving Dinner this year!  Well look no further!  Below I have two of my favorite recipes that are 1) easy to make, 2) can be made a few days ahead, 3)  great crowd pleasers and 4) super delicious!




Copper River smoked salmon dip

  • 1 can/jar of Smoked Copper River Red Salmon
  • 1-2 packages of cream cheese (or Neufchâtel cheese which I prefer because it is softer and has less fat)
  • 1/2 C milk (or 1/2 & 1/2, which is even better.  Even better yet is heavy cream, just a splash will add richness to the flavor.)
  • 1 T red onion, very finely sliced
  • 1 T capers
  • In a double boiler, melt cream cheese until soft.   Mix together milk (or 1/2 & 1/2), red onion  and cream cheese or Neufchâtel cheese until smooth.
  • Add salmon and stir until salmon is all mixed together.  
  • Add capers and gently fold them in, careful not to break them.
  • Serve with crackers.










Smoked salmon deviled eggs


Make your favorite deviled eggs recipe.
Add 1-2 teaspoons of Wasabi and 1 tablespoon smoked salmon to the yokes. Don't worry, the Wasabi will mellow with the mayonaise and just be a nice flavor with a small kick.
Finish as usual.
Yum yum in the tum tums. (The best part about this recipe is not only is it super tasty but you don't have to share too much of your smoked salmon! A little goes a long way)









Happy Thanksgiving!
