Smoked Salmon Rillettes


  • 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


  1. In a medium bowl, add the cream cheese, green onion, lemon juice, dill, and paprika, and stir to combine.
  2. 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.
  3. Season with salt and pepper. Add more lemon juice, dill or paprika if desired.
  4. Serve cold on toasted baguette, or crackers. Garnish with celery and chives.
  5. Makes a great addition to any charcuterie or cheese board.
