Found this in Cooking with Paula Deen and I have been making this for a few years now. I didn't include time for cooling, that depends on each person.

Very nice and Scandinavian! The pumpernickel bread is must! I also liked more salmon and less egg, like another viewer.

I smoked a trout yesterday so I made this recipe and another similar one for dinner tonight. I increased the fish and decreased the egg to 3. We actually preferred the other recipe better - the main difference is that the other version called for dijon mustard and capers which were great additions.

Delicious lunch spread! I made this using 3/4 tsp dried dill and left out the onion, also omitted sour cream like a previous reviewer (didn't have any on hand) and used 2 tbsp cream cheese. I didn't bother to slice up the smoked salmon and mix it in the egg salad; instead, I just placed the salmon on top of the egg salad mixture. Thanks for posting, I will be enjoying this again and again!
