Smoked Salmon Pâté

Salmon in a Clear Stream
Michael S. Quinton 

Pâtés are snacks up-graded a notch.  I love pâté as an appetizer or as a snack at a party.  Bill loves liver pâté, especially the duck liver pâté made by our local butcher.  I go more for the pâtés including salmon, vegetables, smoked fish and cheese.

Pâté is a mixture of ground meat and fat minced into a spreadable paste.  There are many additions, such as:  wine, herbs, vegetables and spices.  The French and Belgian cooks bake pâté in a crust as a loaf or pie.  

This Smoked Salmon Pâté recipe is out of a cookbook that I picked up in Springfield, KY on a recent visit.  Not only does it contain a lot of wonderful recipes, it also is filled with interesting history about Washington County, KY; going back to the days of Abraham Lincoln.

Smoked Salmon Pâté is a delicious savory appetizer!  It improves with setting so it can be made a day ahead of time easily.  It is mouthwatering on crackers; however, it also makes an excellent luncheon spread for a sandwich.  It’s delicious!

Smoked Salmon Pâté


1 pound can salmon
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
2 tablespoons grated or finely chopped onion
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon lemon juice
¼ teaspoon pepper or dash of Tabasco
1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
Chopped pecans


Drain salmon and remove skin and bones.  Flake and combine with next 7 ingredients.  Chill several hours.  Garnish with chopped nuts, parsley or paprika.  Serve with crackers.

A great pâté for your Super Bowl party!

We went for Sunday rides in the Model-T when my grandmother didn't visit. My parents liked the orange groves, miles and miles of orange trees always either in blossom or full of oranges. My parents had a picnic basket and a metal chest. In the metal chest were frozen cans of fruit on dry ice, and in the picnic basket were weenie and liverwurst and salami sandwiches, potato chips, bananas and soda-pop. The soda-pop was shifted continually back and forth between the metal box and the picnic basket. It froze quickly, and then had to be thawed.
