Smoked Salmon Log- Holiday Party Appetizer

G and I received a gift of canned smoked salmon from our good friend Ron. Immediately we thought about making a special appetizer from a recipe given to me by Cousin Mildred in Philadelphia- Salmon Log. The below recipe calls for an 8oz can of red salmon but I found that 8 oz of smoked salmon or even smoked yellow tail works very well also.

Salmon Log

8 oz red salmon
8 oz(1 pkg) cream cheese
2 tsp finely chopped onion or shallots
1 T lemon juice
1 tsp creamed horseradish
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 C chopped (coarse)nuts
1/2 C Chopped fresh parsely

Combine salmon, cream cheese, onion, lemon juice, horseradich and salt. Form into a log shape. Mix parsely and nuts together. Press parsely/nuts over all sides of log. Wrap in plastic wrap and further shape into log. You can then also wrap again in aluminum foil and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Merry Christmas
