    Baby Kato's Note:

    I love smoked salmon and cream cheese. I have tried alot of them, quite a few from here on Zaar. So I decided to try my own....I took my favorite ingredients and threw them all together to create this truly tasty sandwich. I always add a little extra smoked salmon, cause I love it...I hope that you will enjoy this version. Add these ingredients to suit your personal tastes. The longer the cream cheese mixture sits in the fridge, the better it will taste. This is wonderful served on a large toasted sesame bagel for lunch or it makes a great appetizer when served on plain fresh mini bagels.

      So very yummy...what I really enjoyed was the flavor of the first I was leery of using it...but it adds a refreshing taste...I used smoke salmon from an Indian reservation on the was Chinook salmon...I doubled the red onion only because I didn't have any shallots...and used finely grated lemon peel for the lemon time I will us the lesser amount of salt...was a tad bit salty for me...but spot on for DH...and I only used 1 tbls of the real maple syrup...this was a test run for both Christmas eve and New Years eve...two parties but different's a keeper and I'm sure it will be gone in a flash at both gatherings...I made this as an appetizer...this makes way too much for just one bagel...thanks for posting this delicious recipe...=)

      A winner! Yeah I like it!
      This wonderful spread is really great and tasty.
      I used balance Philadelphia cheese. I renounced to the maple sirup as I prefere this recipe salted.
      I'm lucky that I had still some frozen cilantro and frozen lemon grass.
      If necessary I think that the lemon grass could be replaced with fresh ingwer (perhaps better only half quantity).
      Cilantro is sooo special (I love it!) that I wouldn't miss it!
      Thanks a lot Kato!

      Oh my! This is good! I threw everything in a mini food processor and pulsed a few times to be used as a dip for crackers and bagel chips. I had no red onions on hand so that was omitted, and we found it a tad too sweet (my fault,not the recipe's) as I had used the maximum 3 tablespoons of maple syrup. For hubby and I 2 will be sufficient. Made for the Aus/NZ recipe swap.
