Salmon Log Appetizer Recipe

Submitted by Carol from Seaside

8 ounces cream cheese, softened

1 tablespoon lemon juice

2 teaspoons grated onion

1 teaspoon cream-style horseradish (to taste)

If using unsmoked salmon, add 1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke


  1. Combine all ingredients and mix well.

  2. Shape into the desired form (see note below).

  3. Chill thoroughly.

  4. Can be rolled in chopped nuts or chopped parsley.

  5. Serve with crackers.

Note: To shape, line a bowl with plastic wrap, pack the salmon and cover with the edges of plastic wrap before chilling. To serve, open the plastic wrap, turn the bowl upside down on the serving tray, and remove the plastic wrap. This will give the salmon log a nice round shape.
