Smoked Salmon Dip

The other day I had to prepare a last minute healthy snackboard for a somewhat unexpected supper.

A manic pantry and fridge search turned up a tub of natural pot set yoghurt, a can of salmon, a 50g packet of smoked salmon, caperberries and dill, which I keep chopped in the freezer. Perfect for a healthy dip!

Bursting with tangy flavour from the capers , the dip can be whizzed up in no time and is a healthy low fat alternative to store bought ones, which are normally cream cheese based and can contain various additives.

The dip was so good there was no leftovers. Luckily, I saved half a batch for our pleasure and used it to top hard boiled eggs for breakfast the next day. Deliciousness.

Makes 2 cups / for 4-6 people as a snack

Smoked salmon dip

The dip is quick to make and goes well with eggs or even mixed in with cold pasta for a tasty salad. Low in fat and additives, it is a nutritious alternative to store bought dips.

  • 200g natural pot set yoghurt
  • 210g can of pink or red salmon, drained
  • 50g smoked salmon
  • 2 sprigs spring onion
  • 2 tbsp capers + 1 tbsp caper juice
  • 1 tbsp chopped dill
  • pepper to taste

To make the dip: chop smoked salmon and spring onions into small pieces. Break up canned salmon with a fork. Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Season wit pepper to taste. Chill until needed.

To serve: place in a serving bowl and serve with water crackers, toasted bread or as a topping for hard boiled eggs or even pasta.

Tip: the dip will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for 2 days.

  2. For being unprepared you were very prepared! 🙂

  3. Oh yum! The last photo is stunning. LOVE it!

  4. I would eat this for lunch or dinner. It sounds delicious. I must try it as I also think my boys would love it.

  5. I like that. It’s cheaper to use half and half on the salmon and so artful! Great recipe.

  6. I haven’t tried it before with a yogurt but I did with mayonnaise. I usually prepare salmon for our lunch time and now I can create a new dish for salmon with the help of your recipe.

  7. This dip looks amazing – especially on the egg. I often substitute different kinds of cream with yoghurt. I can never taste the difference, and you don’t get all the guilt.

  8. Love the simplicity of the recipe. I was just looking for a satisfactory seafood dip recipe yesterday and could find one…problem no solved! 🙂

  9. oh, yummo. this dip is right up my alley. i might make this soon.
