The Crumpet Shop in Pike Place Market serves this spread on warm crumpets, but I’m sure it would be great on just about any crackers or thinly sliced toasted bread.

Ingredients :

  • 6 oz (170 g) Nova cold-smoked salmon (lox)
  • 8 oz (225 g) cream cheese cut into small cubes
  • Crackers or thinly sliced and toasted bread
  • Optional garnishes: finely chopped onion or scallions (spring onions), capers, sprigs of dill, finely chopped tomato, or thinly sliced cucumber

Steps :

  • Blend the salmon and cream cheese in an electric food processor until the mixture is smooth.
  • Serve with crackers and optional garnishes if desired.
  • Serves 6 to 8.
