Copycat Whole Foods Smoked Salmon Dip
- 1 bunch fresh dill
- ⅓ cup red onion (diced)
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- ½ tsp ground pepper (where to buy organic pepper)
- 10 to 12 oz wild salmon
- 1¼ cups homemade mayo
Several hours before dinner, cook fillets at 350° F for 10 – 20 minutes depending on thickness. It’s important not to overcook the fillets or the spread will be dry. If they do get a little tough, just add more mayo to the mix.
Place cooked fillets in fridge.
To make with a food processor:
When the salmon fillets are cool, peel the skin off, break them up and drop them into your food processor.
Add the dill, onion, lemon juice, pepper and 3/4 of the mayo.
Blend until creamy and then taste. Make adjustments as needed (more mayo, lemon juice, etc.)
To make without a food processor:
When the salmon fillets are cool, peel the skin off, break them up and drop them into a bowl. Finely mince the dill and onion and add.
Add lemon juice, pepper, and 3/4 of the mayo and stir until well-blended.
Taste and make adjustments as needed (more mayo, lemon juice, etc.)
We serve with Whole Foods' Cracked-Pepper Water Crackers or homemade crackers, but just about anything will work. Enjoy!
