Baked Salmon Salad Spread is so versatile you can use it as an appetizer spread with crackers, or you can use it as a spread for sandwiches.
What I love most about this Baked Salmon Salad Spread is that the flavor isn’t too fishy tasting, which for me can sometimes be a turnoff. The mild fish flavor is balanced nicely with bright, fresh lemon zest, dried dill weed, and a touch of sweet pickle relish.
If you’re intimidated by cooking fish, don’t be. Baking the salmon for this Baked Salmon Salad Spread couldn’t be easier than placing the fish on a baking sheet, seasoning the fillets with salt and pepper and popping them into a preheated 375 degree oven for 15 minutes. Remove the fish from the oven, allow it to cool, and then flake it with fork.
If you’re ready to make Baked Salmon Salad Spread, lets get started:
Place the 1 pound of salmon fillets on a baking sheet and season with salt and pepper. Bake the fillets in a preheated 375 degree oven for 15 minutes. Remove the salmon from the oven and allow to cool before flaking it apart with a fork.
