“Perfect for get togethers! This can be doubled if desired, if you are doubling the recipe I would suggest to use 1 can of red salmon and one can of pink due to cost factor. I have served this many times formed in a fish mold (see note on bottom).”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Drain the salmon (squeeze out any excess moisture with hands) and remove the skin and bones.
  2. Combine the salmon with the softened cream cheese, lemon juice, onion, horseradish, salt, lemon pepper (or black pepper) and liquid smoke flavoring; mix well to combine.
  3. Shape the salmon mixture into a form of a log (about 8 x 8-inches long).
  4. Combine the finely chopped nuts with the parsley, and coat the outside of the salmon log with the nut mixture.
  5. Place the log onto serving plate and cover with plastic wrap.
  6. Chill for a minimum of 5 hours before serving (overnight is even better).
  7. *NOTE* if you are molding the salmon, chill the mold for a minimum of 8 hours (or overnight is even better) before unmolding onto serving plate.
  8. Sprinkle the top of the salmon with the parsley/nut mixture before serving.
  9. Serve with crispy crackers.
