I will use canned RED salmon. I used pink and didn't care for it, not did my family. I think it is a good recipe, but red salmon is a must.

I thought this was good. It was simple to make and it makes a lot. I too made to nice sized logs out of it. It was not firm after chilling, but could be carefully shaped. This went over well. However, when I make this again, I will probably tweak it a bit. I will add in finely chopped onion instead of the grated onions and maybe even some chopped celery, or mix in some pecan chips. I would have liked it better with a little bit of texture. Be sure to try this recipe. It is a crowd pleaser.

This log is amazing. It's hard to get my kids to eat fish, but they love this log! I just sprinkle a little brown sugar on top and it becomes addictive.

I've made this for years. But, I find it does not go into a log easily, so I just spoon it into a nice fish dish I have and use it as a spread. I've just made it and it is chlling. I will serve it tomorrow, so the flavors blend. I used 1 teaspoon of Liquid Smoke and 1 1/2 teaspoons of Horseradish.

This is excellent. I also used more horseradish and smoke flavor.

Needed an appetizer that didn't require a lot of 'hands on' time & this caught my attention. I used onion powder rather than grated onion & increased the horseradish by at least 1/2 tsp. Rolled in finely chopped toasted pecans.Also shaped into 2 smaller logs because I prefer to refresh appetizers when I have guests, as I feel large logs/balls can become rather sad-looking. Anyway, enjoyed the recipe--thanks for sharing!

Fantastic! I took the advice of other reviewers and added an extra 1/2 tsp of horseradish and liquid smoke, 1/4 cup fresh parsley, 1/4 tsp dill, and 1/4 cup minced celery. I also added 1/2 tsp granulated garlic. My brother incredulously exclaimed "Salmon dip?", but when he tried it I nearly had to rescue the entire batch. ;) A great Christmas party snack!

I use walnuts and fresh parsley and also have added finely-chopped green onions to the mixture to roll the log in; fresh dill is also. I also add freshly ground pepper to the salmon and cream cheese mix. I use fat-free cream cheese and I chill the mixture overnight. The flavors blend wonderfully overnight--so you do not want to hurry this preparation!

Awesome. I used pure horseradish powder with a small amount of regular sour cream. Also, baked a fresh slab of sockeye salmon with some seasoning's and a small amount of liquid mesquite smoke.
