You’re going to love this Smoked Salmon Dip Recipe! It’s a creamy dip, made with cream cheese, smoked salmon, and fresh dill. And guess what else? This salmon dip just happens to be low-carb and Keto friendly! So be sure to bookmark this recipe. You’ll want to come back the next time you have smoked salmon leftovers.

I still remember the first time I used smoked salmon and cream cheese in a recipe together for the first time. It was in the early nineties, I made an Emeril Lagasse recipe for smoked salmon cheesecake.

Although part of me felt that salmon and cheesecake should never be in the same sentence, I decided to give it a try. That’s the day I learned to think outside the box when it comes to cooking!

The salmon cheesecake was the hit of the party, and I had to share the recipe with many of my guests. This Smoked Salmon Dip Recipe was inspired by Emil’s recipe. It has some of the same flavors, but definitely a lot easier to prepare. The next time you have some leftover smoked salmon, try this recipe!

Smoked Salmon Dip

This smokey dip starts off with softened cream cheese, blended with a mix of yogurt and sour cream. The flavor is kicked up with lemon juice, hot sauce, Worcestershire, liquid smoke, and ranch dressing. Now the fun part, the mix-ins!

Mix-in Ideas:

  • salmon
  • Bacon
  • chives
  • garlic
  • fresh dill

Other Mix-In Suggestions

As usual, I’d like to offer you some other mix-in suggestions. Feel free to toss in any of the following:

  • Diced red or green onion
  • Sweet mini bell peppers
  • Serranos (if you can handle the heat)
  • Capers
  • Horseradish

Which Smoked Salmon Is Best For Making Smoked Salmon Dip?

If you own an electric smoker, you’re in luck. The next time you smoke salmon (or steelhead trout) for dinner, use the leftovers to make this dip.

However, if you don’t own a smoker, all hope is not lost. Using prepackaged smoked salmon works just as well. Costco has a good Smoked Salmon option that works well in this recipe, or use your favorite brand.
