Smoked Salmon dip

"Shut up! Shut up you American. You always talk, you Americans, you talk and you talk and say 'Let me tell you something' and I just wanna say this'. Well you're dead now, so shut up."

I must say, the Monty Python salmon mousse sketch is one of their best. Though..... this isn't mousse. It's a spread really. But I believe one should always work in a Monty Python sketch where possible.

This makes a great dip or spread, but I like it best on toasted bagels. Also great on crackers. The garnish is important, so try to sprinkle on either capers, dill, lemon zest or red onion. Or a combination.

Important - Don't use lox, gravlax or other cured or cold smoked salmon here. Use the hot smoked kind for this.

I like this smooth, but if you want a more chunky salmon sort of thing, mix in the salmon last and just don't mix as much.

Instructions

Put everything other than garnish in a bowl. Mix until smooth with a fork. Easy as that.

Ingredients

8 ounces smoked salmon
2 ounces sour cream
4 ounces whipped cream cheese
1/2 lemon, juiced save zest for garnish
1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill, save fronds for garnish
1 tablespoon chopped red onion
1-2 teaspoons horseradish or more to taste
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon chopped capers
Serve with bagels or crackers

The smoked salmon makes this a rather expensive dip. And it's so yummy you tend to devour huge portions. Oh well.

Keep in mind you will be unable to find things like tangerines here in the middle of nowhere.
