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