I bought a lot more than usual (1 lb), and want to see if you have any ideas on what to do with it, besides eating it with caviar, on a bagel w/ cream cheese, etc.. Don't get me wrong, both are wonderful, but I'm looking for something different. I'm the only one in my house that eats it, so i want something that freezes well and/or can be re-used for another meal.
This is from the Barefoot Contessa, and is wonderful.
SALMON, DILL AND CREAM CHEESE SPREAD BAREFOOT CONTESSA
8 ounces cream cheese
1 teaspoon prepared white horseradish
4 ounces smoked salmon
1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
Thinly sliced baguette rounds
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
½ cup sour cream
½ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
Cream the cheese in an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment until just smooth.
Add the sour cream, lemon juice, dill, horseradish, salt, pepper, and mix.
Add the smoked salmon and mix well.
Chill and serve with baguette rounds or crackers or crudités.
If you can find it, I prefer Norwegian Salmon, as it is drier and less salty then other smoked salmon.
