Smoked Alaska Salmon Dip Ingredients

  • 8oz canned (or fresh) smoked salmon
  • 16 oz cream cheese
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 tsp celery seed
  • 1 tsp dried dill weed
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp jalapeno juice (or to taste)

If you want the appetizer to be more of a consistent spread, mix all ingredients together, all at once, until well blended.

Or if you want to have nice chunks of salmon in your dip, mix all ingredients except the salmon. Then gently fold in the salmon last.
