Quick & easy appetizer (the cook time is actually the time to allow the mixture to firm in the frig, longer is better).

  1. Mix salmon with cream cheese, lemon juice, horseradish, and onion.
  2. Refrigerate until firm.
  3. Mix parsley and pecans together.
  4. Form salmon mixture into a ball.
  5. Roll in pecan-parsley mixture.

The city I have just moved too is renowned for its Art Deco 'culture' and this weekend has been Art Deco Weekend, lots of activities going on and we decided to pack a 'classy' picnic and join in the festivities, so along with a couple bottles of wine and another 'zaar recipe I made this yummy scrummy Salmon Ball, the horseradish gives it a real 'punch' and there isnt much left! Thanks for posting this, we really enjoyed. =)

Great tasting and unique. I found that I only like it using red salmon though...the pink salmon makes it taste too much like tuna.
