Simple Smoked Salmon Spread

Simple Smoked Salmon Spread

This is a great recipe to throw together as an appetizer for a party or tailgating. You can make this with leftover salmon (the fish, not the band) or freshly smoked salmon. Refrigerating the smoked fish prior to making the spread enhances the smoked flavor. I added Jalapeno to this version.

If you like beef brisket sandwiches here is a way to get that flavor in a much shorter timeframe and somewhat less hassle.  The chuck roast or California roast cut is very flavorful and can be smoked in just a few hours.  This can be cooked in a slow cooker or instant pot for sandwiches as well; but, I prefer smoked.
