  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 12 ounces smoked salmon torn into bite-sized pieces
  • ¼ cup capers or to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onion optional
  • 1 ½ teaspoons fresh dill chopped
  • ¼ cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3 dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 drops hot sauce or to taste
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • Crusty bread crackers, bagel crisps or cucumbers, for serving


  • Let the cream cheese soften overnight or use a food processor to soften it completely if in a time crunch.
  • Stir the capers, green onion, dill, cream, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce and lemon juice into the softened cream cheese until smooth and creamy.
  • Add in the salmon and carefully fold it in until well combined, trying not to tear it or make it any smaller than bite-size pieces.
  • Serve with crusty bread, crackers, bagel crisps or cucumber slices.


If the spread is too stiff, add a little more cream or lemon juice to help thin it up.
Low Carb Serving Option: If you are looking for a low-carb solution, cucumber slices will pair with the salmon spread beautifully!
Storage: Refrigerate unused portion for 1 to 2 days. After that, the dill and green onion start to take over the flavor of the salmon.
