This recipe is inspired by my beloved Mother-In Law, Sara, who happens to be one of the greatest, gourmet chefs I know. She makes a mean salmon spread that delights the entire family!
This is the best spread to put on your favorite bagels, 7 grain toast or crackers. We like to grill our salmon with a little bit of wood chips on the side, so as not to have the smokey taste be too overwhelming.
1 lb fresh sockeye salmon fillet
1 tsp lemon pepper
1 tsp dill
pepper to taste
1 - 4 tbsp prepared horseradish (to taste)
3 - 4 tbsp Hellman's mayonnaise
2 tsp lemon juice
Season the salmon with lemon pepper, dill and pepper. Grill or smoke the salmon fillet for about 30. Let the salmon cool. Discard any remaining bones and skin. In a bowl flake the salmon and add mayonnaise, horseradish and lemon juice and maybe a little more seasonings if desired. Refrigerate for at least an hour.
