From Australian Woman's Day magazine. Suggested you serve with baguette toasts and or cornichons (small gherkins). Servings are a guess but makes 1 1/2 cups. I have also made this using Philadelphia ultra low fat cream cheese and it went over very well.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 415 g canned red salmon (drained and flaked)
  • 60 g soft cream cheese (spreadable)
  • 14 cup thickened cream
  • 1 lemon (juice of)
  • 3 green onions (spring onions or scallions, finely sliced)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill (snipped)


  1. Place salmon, cream cheese, cream and lemon juice in a jug and using a hand blender process until well blended (or use a small food processor).
  2. Stir in onions and dill and season to taste.
  3. If not serving immediately cover and chill in refrigerator and bring out about 15 to 30 minutes before serving.

One of my friends came over for a visit and I wanted to make something for us to munch on while we were visiting. I used Vadalia onions in place of the green onions cause that's what I had in the fridge. I loved the dill and lemon with the other ingredients. Oh what flavor. Served on whole wheat crackers they were delish!

Love salmon or trout dip, and this recipe was excellent. I used red salmon as specified in the recipe, and added capers, as suggested by duonyte and a few grindings of freshly ground black pepper as suggested by KITTENCAL. Apart from that, I made this exactly to the recipe. Next time I make this, I'm going to try 1/2 cream cheese and 1/2 feta, not because I'm dissatisfied with the recipe as it is, but because I love experimenting. The spring onions and dill were great in this, as was the lemon juice. Thanks for sharing a super recipe, I'm Pat!

delicious, I used mayonnaise in place of the cream and increased the fresh dill, also added freshly ground black pepper, a 4 hour chilling time increased the flavor, my DH enjoyed this on crackers, thanks Pat!
