Cynny is my father-in-law’s lady friend. The girls call her Miss Cynny. Doesn’t that sound like a southern movie title? Well, it does in my mind….
My father-in-law brought us back a lot of smoked salmon, fresh salmon and fish of all kinds from his trip to Alaska. Good thing we have 2 freezers and 2 fridges! On the first night he was here, he was ranting and raving about Cynny’s smoked salmon dip. He told us how everyone in Alaska smokes their own salmon. They all have their own recipe for smoking the salmon and making the dip. He called Cynny and had her tell me her recipe over the phone so I could make it for us….right then and there. Sure, I felt like making smoked salmon dip all along! 🙂
AAAAAAAH family! Gotta love it! Turns out the dip is really really good! Perfect for a party, football game, card night….etc… or just in time for cocktails!
8-ounce cream cheese (low fat is OK) at room temperature
3/4 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 garlic cloves minced
2 tablespoons fresh dill
2 tablespoons green onion finely chopped
2 tablespoons horseradish
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
7-ounce smoked salmon
Mix all ingredients but not your smoked salmon. Once you have the right consistency (smooth but not overworked) fold in your salmon. Don’t over do it otherwise you are heading towards smoked salmon mousse….good dish just not what we are looking for in a dip!
Serve with buttery crackers (Ritz Crackers). These crackers are definitely the best tasting for this dip. I think it is the combination of the buttery cracker with the creaminess of the dip. It is a definite must!
Note: It is easier to work with your cream cheese if you bring it to room temperature first. Although I tend to forget stuff like that, in reality, once you start working the mixture it will eventually blend pretty well.
