Secret Recipe Club: Creamy Smoked Salmon Dip

.  Annnnnnnd.

It's SRC time.

This month I was assigned a scrumptiously interesting and bilingual blog: Canela Kitchen.  Yes, a bilingual blog.  Who knew?!


Anywho, searching through Canela Kitchen recipes made my mouth water from the vast array of appetizers, desserts [more mousses and puddings than I thought possible!], soups, and so much more.  But Canela Kitchen has been in existence since 2007, so of course they have loads to share!  And back to this bilingual thing, each and every post written in English is followed up by the same post written in Spanish.  Nifty, huh?!  Very internationally friendly.

But when I stumbled upon the Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese Dip recipe, there was no need to search any further.  I was hooked from the moment I saw 'smoked salmon.'


And it is official this dip has made it on to my go-to appetizer recipes.  HOLY SMOKES, this dip is too good, if that's even possible.  But I guess any time you throw smoked salmon into the mix, it's gotta be good.  Plus some salty capers, crunchy onions, refreshing cucumbers, tangy dill, and a creamy base.  On a baguette.  Hmm, guess who won't be sharing?


The great thing about this dip [aside from the fact that it's so dang tasty], is that you're turning a potentially expensive appetizer into one that's much more affordable.  I mean, we all know smoked salmon isn't cheap.  So mixing it into a dip really spreads the salmon much further [pun intended].  I'm totally envisioning this dip in our Easter spread this year.  Yes, my family, you will get to enjoy this creation just as I have.  Lucky ducks.

Thanks again, Canela Kitchen, for a superb dip recipe!  Until next month, SRCers!  .

  7. Oh Jess, how I love a good pun, thanks. I am wishing right now that I did not make scrambled eggs with smoked salmon the other day because I so want this dip. No I mean, I really, really want this dip. I have a can of smoked salmon, I wonder if would substitute okay?
