Simple Salmon Spread Recipe – Gluten Free Progressive OSCAR Dinner Party

Posted on February 25th, 2010 by Alison Read 5 Comments - Add Your Own »

Want a simple, yet elegant spread for your gluten-free crackers or toasts? Try a Simple Salmon Spread! This would be a great appetizer for an Oscar soiree, and is part of the menu for the Gluten-Free Progressive OSCAR dinner party.


Alison’s Simple Salmon Spread on Gluten-Free Toasts


  • About 8 oz. of cooked salmon, skin removed. Bake the salmon in a 375-400 degree oven until just cooked through (about 15-20 minutes). Anyway you want to spice the salmon when you cook it is fine — the flavors will come through in the dip. For my dip, I used leftover barbecued salmon from our dinner the night before, which my husband had spiced with his top secret marinade of olive oil, brown sugar, cayenne and thyme (now I have to kill you).
  • About 3 oz. of cream cheese.
  • Some lemon.
  • Some salt.
  • Some dill would be nice (I didn’t have any).
  • Sliced bread (gluten-free), toasted and cut into squares. I used Udi’s Gluten-Free Whole Grain bread.


  1. Put salmon in food processor fitted with the steel blade and process until smooth.
  2. Add cream cheese and process. Add more or less depending on your preference.
  3. Squeeze some lemon and add dill and a little salt, gradually until you like the taste.
  4. Serve in a bowl and let guests spread on the gluten-free toasts.

Spread the love


  1. Oh, I love salmon … this spread looks fantastic, Alison! Mr. GFE neither likes salmon, nor watches the Oscars, so I’ll have to have my own little party. 😉

    Thanks so much for this recipe!


  2. I’ve never tried salmon spread but I do like the ingredients. Looks quick and easy too. Love that. This has been a great Gluten Free Progressive OSCAR Dinner Party!

  3. Sounds lovely when I get back to being pescatarian again! Oh, and when I can have dairy or soy. Yum!


  4. Alison – this is simple and lovely. I can’t do dairy, but this is easy to overcome – I would just sub in Tofutti cream cheese. Thanks!

  5. This spread looks divine! I am going to make some with all the salmon I just from Pike Place! Thanks for sharing!!
