Prep Time 15 minutes
Chill 1 hour


  • 1 cup cream cheese softened
  • 2 green onions finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice or to taste
  • 1-2 tbsp dill
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 cup smoked salmon chopped into small pieces
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • In a medium bowl, add the cream cheese, green onion, lemon juice, dill, and paprika, and stir to combine.
  • Add the the salmon and stir until smooth. If you want larger pieces of salmon, stir gently until just combined. I prefer mine to be on the smoother side, so I mix a bit longer.
  • Season with salt and pepper. Add more lemon juice, dill or paprika if desired.
  • Serve cold on toasted baguette, or crackers. Garnish with celery and chives.
  • Makes a great addition to any charcuterie or cheese board.
