This salmon dip recipe is so quick and easy to make. It will surely impress your guests at your next family get together or dinner party. This recipe only requires three ingredients and a whirl of the food processor and you’d done. This elegant appetizer recipe couldn’t be any easier.
One of Cedar Bay’s high-quality products is their full fillet of Atlantic Salmon, pre-seasoned (choose either Sugar & Spice or Orange Ginger) on a pre-soaked cedar plank and sold frozen. You can’t beat the convenience as we are all looking for new ways to cook healthy meals for our families in less time.
For this recipe, I used Cedar Bay’s Applewood with Orange & Ginger Cedar Planked Atlantic Salmon. It was easy just place in the refrigerator to thaw overnight. Cooking the already prepped salmon in the oven (or can easy be grilled also) and it’s ready to serve in about 20 minutes. This recipe is also a great option for leftover salmon after you’ve enjoyed an impressive Cedar Planked Atlantic Salmon dinner.
