Number of Servings: 8


    -Smoked salmon (12 oz package)
    1/2 cup of light sour cream
    2 tbsp of light butter (or regular, if preferred)
    Salt and pepper to taste


I would recommend being conservative with the salt as the salmon itself is very salty. You can omit the salt altogether if desired.

I also found that the pate doesn't need much butter, unless you like it to be very rich -- the sour cream helps balance out the flavors and consistency, so I added a bit more than 1/2 cup rather than more butter.

I used hot wood-smoked salmon rather than cold-smoked (lox). I haven't tried it with cold-smoked salmon, but I'm sure that would work as well, the flavor and consistency would just be a bit different.


In a food processor, combine salmon, sour cream, butter, and 1 tbsp of dill. Pulse until smooth. Add additional dill, salt, and pepper to taste, if desired.

Serving Size: Makes about 7-8 servings.
