Wild Pacific Salmon Dip is the perfect dish for your next party. It is easy to make and tastes incredible! Here is the recipe I use.
First and foremost you need to start with a good piece of Wild Pacific Salmon. Wild salmon tastes so much better than farm raised that is is not even comparable. It is also much better for you. For this dip, I used a fillet of a King Salmon I caught on the Olympic Peninsula.
First prepare your fillet for the grill
Ingredients for the Salmon Fillet
1 Sweet Onion
Place the fillet in an aluminum foil boat and sprinkle truffle salt over the fillet.
Place generous pats of butter over the fillet
Slice a whole sweet onion and place the slices over the whole area.
The onion slices will be used in the dip
Sprinkle a generous amount of dill over the fillet
Squeeze 1/2 of a large lemon over the top of the Fillet
Place Fillet on the grill at 350 and cool until the meat easily flakes off.
Once the Filet is fully cooked, remove from the grill and get ready to make the dip
Ingredients for the dip
Cooked Wild Pacific Salmon Fillet
Sweet onions cooked with the fillet
3 to 5 baby dill pickles
2 to 3 stalks of celery
First remove the onion slices from the cooked wild salmon fillet and chop into small pieces - do the same with the baby dill pickles and celery
Put each ingredient into separate containers and fill a fourth container with mayonnaise in roughly the same proportion as the other ingredients
Remove the salmon fillet from the foil, and place into a large mixing bowl.
With a fork, stir and mince the salmon fillet into small pieces. As you do this pick out any bones you see. Make sure to get out all the bones, and do this until all the pieces of the fillet are worked down into equally small pieces.
Once you have mixed and de-boned the salmon, add the pickles, celery, onions and mix it all together.
Next, add in a couple of table spoons of mayo and mix into the dip. Add additional mayo until you reach the consistency you feel is right for you. ( be carefully not to add too much at first, you don’t want to over do it. Just keep adding small amounts until you reach the consistency that you like)
Place dip in a serving bowl and serve with you favorite crackers!
Hope you enjoy!!
