Quick Smoked Salmon Spread

Famous Memories!

I am not sure how many of you have ever eaten at Famous Dave's Barbeque House? Well if you haven't you need to locate the closest location and go there today! My family and I have eaten there so many times, all the staff knew us by name.

We ate there two to three times a week, every week for years. Yes, people, years. During my Famous Dave's addiction I was rarely if ever eating meat, so that left me with limited choices from Famous Dave's.

My number one item to eat every time I went besides all the wonderful side dishes they make was this beautiful, smokey, salmon spread, served with a side of toasted pita bread.

This spread is delicious, it had to be for me to eat it twice a week for years. The only issues with the spread at Famous Dave's is I never bothered to ask what was in it. All I did was eat it, and eat it some more.

I decided to recreate the spread to the best of my ability, and it turned out delicious as well. I wanted it smokey and creamy and I got both. I hope you enjoy this dip as much as I have.

  1. Love salmon and this spread looks fab! Thanks so much for stopping by and for all of your nice comments. Have a great week!

    1. Your welcome Marguerite.@

  2. This sounds like a great dip recipe. I love smoked salmon.

    1. Thank you Curt, it is a great recipe, it's the perfect amount of smoke and the lemon gives it a nice bite. If you like a little heat, a few drops of Tabasco hot sauce would be nice.

  3. Great recipe - thank you!

    The combination of smokey and creamy flavors works so well!

I must confess I love great food. I decided to create The Creole Contessa blog after cooking and eating a great meal with my family Big Goo the hubby of almost twenty years and my lil’ Contessa Summer aka “Baby Girl." I told Big Goo and Baby Girl, it is just not fair to not share these great recipes with the world; and the Creole Contessa blog was born.
