Russell Sparkman is our director of marketing and sales. He also has a “summer job” as a fishing guide at Waterfall Resort, in Southeast Alaska.

He’s recently returned from salmon fishing in Alaska with King Salmon to share with us. So, I thought it’d be appropriate to share my favorite salmon spread recipe!


Smoked Salmon Spread

Ingredients and Preparation

8 oz smoked salmon (no bones or skin)

5 T mayonnaise  (we recommend Primal Kitchen brand or other avocado oil based mayo)

3 T cream cheese 

3 T lemon juice

2 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped or pressed

1 ½  T capers, rinsed and drained

2 T chopped parsley

¼ tsp Tabasco sauce

  • In a food processor place salmon, mayonnaise, cream cheese, lemon juice and garlic and pulse several times.  If you like it smoother pulse a bit more.
  • Transfer to a work bowl and add capers, 1 T parsley and Tabasco.  
  • Garnish with additional 1 T chopped parsley.  If desired add edible flower, chives or paprika for additional garnish.  
  • Serve with your favorite cracker  (I love the grain free Jilz brand). Or, serve with cucumber slices, endive leaves or on an appetizer salad.
