Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup onion (very finely diced)
  • 1/4 cup dill or parsley (finely chopped)
  • 213 g canned salmon (1 can)
  • 1/4 cup smoked salmon (diced)
  • 1 large egg (boiled)
  • 1 tablespoon plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon mayo
  • lemon zest (1/2 lemon)
  • lemon juice (1/4 lemon)
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)

Instructions

  • Dice the onion very finely. 
  • If you are using regular cooking onion, then place it in a small bowl and pour boiling water over the onion and let stand for 20-30 seconds, then drain. This makes the onion sweeter.
    If you are using sweet or red onion then you can omit the boiling water step.
  • Drain the canned salmon and discard any skin or bones. 
    Note, if you have cats then cats would love the drained salmon water.
  • In a large bowl mix together all the ingredients mashing the canned salmon and egg until a course pâté forms.
  • Serve with crackers.
