Smoked Salmon Spread or Dip

Smoked Salmon Spread for bagels or crackersSmoked Salmon Spread is one of those recipes like Portuguese Beans that both Ma’am and I swore was on the site, but when she went to look for it we realized we had both somehow missed posting it.

Maybe because we have both made it so many times we don’t even look at a recipe anymore. Or because it only has three ingredients that you simply mix together until it is the correct taste and consistency for however you plan to use it.

Ma’am made it for some bagels recently and took the pictures.

I like it as a dip/spread on good hearty crackers like Ry-Krisp (they are not sponsoring this post, I just like the combination of flavors with this).

You could thin it out a little more and use it as a dip for chips.

It would also be good in the Roly Poly Sandwiches because it is easy for kids to mix, spread and then cut.

You can use any flavor of liquid smoke you’d prefer. We used hickory flavor when I was growing up because I am pretty sure that was the only option, but I prefer mesquite if I have it now.

With only three ingredients and a painfully simple preparation I have nothing left to say except here’s the recipe, try it and I think you will really like it.

Smoked Salmon Spread

Prep time 1 minute
Meal type Appetizer, Cheese and Eggs, Condiment, Kid Friendly
This Smoked Salmon Spread is amazingly simple and can be used as a bagel spread or a dip for crackers or vegetables.


  • 5-7oz can of salmon (drained - juices reserved if making this a dip)
  • 4oz cream cheese (softened)
  • 1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke flavoring (more or less to taste)


Thoroughly mix ingredients together. Adjust flavoring as needed. If making as a dip, thin to proper consistency with reserved salmon juices.
Keep refrigerated.

Until next time, happy eating.
