Smoked Salmon Appetizer

1 large pkg Philadelphia Cream Cheese

1 large sweet onion, finely minced

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp onion powder

8 oz smoked salmon or lox bits

Cut the onion into quarters and place into the bowl of a food processor. Process with a few pulses until it is evenly chopped but be careful not to liquefy. Break the cream cheese into 4-5 sections and add to the processor. Add the onion powder and garlic powder and process the mixture just until the onions are finely minced. Cut smoked salmon into strips just large enough to fit on club crackers. Spread the cream cheese mixture on the cracker and cover it with a strip of salmon.

Optional: Top with a sliver of onion or a sprinkle of onion powder. These can be made into bite-sized stuffed salmon rolls if you roll up the cream cheese mixture inside a small strip of salmon and place each one on a circular cracker

Elegant Salmon Picata

  • 4 - 6 oz. salmon fillets
  • kosher salt and pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 up all-natural chicken broth
  • Juice from one lemon (about 3 Tbsp.)
  • 1 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp. capers, drained
  • 2 Tbsp. finely minced fresh parsley


Preheat the oven to 375 F 

Sprinkle both sides of the salmon with salt and pepper, place on a baking dish and cook until the salmon flakes easily with a fork, about 12-14 minutes.  While the salmon is cooking, melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat.  Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds.  Whisk together the broth, lemon juice and flour until well blended and add to the saucepan.  Bring the mixture to a simmer, stirring constantly.  Continue to simmer and stir gently until the liquid thickens slightly, about 2 minutes.  Stir in the capers and parsley.  Place the cooked salmon on a plate and drizzle with the sauce.  Serve with rice and broccoli on the side.

Parmesan Coated Salmon

Cut into 3 or 4 pieces, place on sheet of tin foil or paper. Salt and pepper the filets. Sprinkle with dill weed on both sides. Dust with paprika. Coat thoroughly with Parmesan cheese and pat cheese to make it adhere well. Place about 1/8 inch of olive or granola oil in large frying pan over medium heat. When oil is hot, add filets. Brown on both sides. Let filets cook until brown (about three minutes) and turn. Don't move filets around in pan until brown on one side before turning. This helps the cheese adhere.
