This is superb! I had made some smoked salmon that was entirely too salty and this was a great way to use it (I didn't add any more salt). Exceptional flavors. And more dill doesn't hurt either!!

I found this recipe at Food Network and had to try it. Good stuff. You could dip anything in a recipe with a base of cream cheese and sour cream. Thanks for posting!

This recipe caught my eye because the write up on the internet claimed it used ingredients you have around the house. I don't have smoked salmon nor fresh dill laying around the house so I had to substitute. I used a 5oz can of skinless boneless salmon. I drained it well and flaked it in to a bowl. I added a few drops of liquid smoke and let it set for about an hour. I used 1/2tsp of dill weed in place of the fresh dill. I added 1/2tsp smoked paprika and a few drops of Frank's hot sauce to add a little bite. The horseradish is a nice touch. It went over very well. I'll go by the recipe the next time I smoke a salmon and fresh dill is available.
