This salmon spread is a copycat of the Famous Dave’s Salmon Spread recipe. So good. Great use for leftover salmon and really great for parties! With capers, cayenne pepper make the dish flavorful than ever. Let’s jump to the recipe.

Recipe of Famous Dave’s Salmon Spread:

Anything goes fine with the famous dave’s salmon. If you prefer vegetables, then celery carrot sticks, bell pepper strips, jicama sticks, roasted beans, cucumber rounds, hot pepper sauce can collaborate a deadly combination. Prepare it and enjoy the fullest with your family members. 

Famous Dave’s Salmon Ingredients:

  • 8 oz. of cream cheese, soften at room temperature
  • 2 cups of shredded salmon (1 large filet)
  • 2 tbsp of Capers
  • 2 tsp of Cayenne pepper powder, or to taste
  • 1 ½ tsp of Kosher salt, or to taste 
  • 2 tsp of freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
  • 2 tsp of extra virgin olive oil

How to Make Salmon Spread Step by Step:

Step 1: First of all, you need to dress the salmon filet with 1 of extra virgin olive oil, 1 ½ tsp of kosher salt, 2 tsp of freshly ground black pepper. Coat finely so that there’s no spot untouched. 

Step 2: Grease a baking pan with the remaining extra virgin olive oil, and place the filet. 

Step 3: Placing the baking pan in the oven, set the oven at the temperature of 350 degrees F for 30 minutes. 

Step 4: By this time, take out a small bowl, and add 8 oz. of cream cheese in the bowl. Using a fork, mash it and soften enough like moist soft dough to spread over. 

Step 5: When the salmon done cooking, let it cool in the wire rack for 10 minutes. 

Step 6: Spread the cream cheese over with a butter knife. Then drizzle the 2 tbsp of capers. Mix on both sides finely. 

Step 7: Add up 2 tsp of cayenne pepper or as per your desired taste. 

I like to have my salmon spread with liquid smoke. There’s another way, you can mix cream cheese, capers, and serve with desired scoop. If you like it spicy, then add up some more cayenne pepper.
