Author Notes: I invited the neighbors over for a cocktail one evening, only to realize that I had nothing to offer in the way of nibble food. When I looked in the pantry, I saw a small can of salmon, and decided to substitute canned salmon instead of fresh smoked mullet that I usually use for fish spread. It was great.
This is a dish that is quick and easy to make, and you probably have all the ingredients on hand at any time.
I use soy products instead of milk, but it works fine with real sour cream and real cream cheese as well. I am not too particular about the brand of canned salmon, although I do try to buy skinless and boneless, and I like the Black Top Pink Salmon, because it is a product of the USA.
