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.


Serves 6


  • 6 ounce can skinless, boneless pink salmon
  • 1/2 finely diced small Vidalia onion (or sweet onion)
  • 1 tablespoon dill pickle juice
  • 1 teaspoon sweet relish
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons soy cream cheese (or real)
  • 2 tablespoons soy sour cream (or real)
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 splashes Worcestershire Sauce
  • 4 splashes Crystal Hot Sauce
  • 2 pinches ground pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh dill


  • 3 pinches paprika
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  • 1/2 finely chopped small Vidalia onion (or sweet onion)
