    So delicious! I added lemon zest to the butter and topped everything with some more lemon zest and chopped dill. I also used salted butter and skipped the salt in the recipe.

    Wow, is this great. I love smoked salmon and this easy to make treat does not disappoint. I used Smoked Wild Sockeye Salmon, it was awesome with the flavored butter and partisan bread. The salmon was a rich tasting, firm fleshed salmon. Thank you so much for sharing a recipe that has gone into my keeper box. So good, so quick to make, so easy and so very tasty. Made for Culinary Quest - 2014 - Salmon out door Challenge - Suitcase Gourmets.

    Made as written for your 1st Football Pool win & this is a great variation of what I see as a Scandinavian classic. There is no occasion, meal or snack in Iceland that is not better w/this treat. I used strips of Recipe #475925 #475925 by pammyowl that I made for her cookathon, sprinkled the tops w/a little extra dill & added capers (a pers fave). Congrats on your FP win & thx for sharing this recipe w/us.

    Thanks for posting this, dear co-Unruly :) I enjoyed it very well in memory of this year's world tour although I made it for 1-2-3-summer hits. Used a mix of ghee, canola and olive oil for the butter and some gluten free multi grain bread - so easy and yummy, will make this again! DH claimed the spread to be the best herb butter he's had, so it will be a keeper even without the salmon.

    This butter is downright delightful!! I could totally see putting a dollop on a piece of grilled steak, fish, or chicken. . .heck, it would be fabulous over veggies too!!! Will serve this up tonight for DH (a salmon lover) using Swedish pumpernickle rye flatbread. He will be a happy man! Made for ZWT6. UPDATE: DH loved this and actually requested it again for BREAKFAST! How funny is that. Great recipe!
