Most grocery stores carry a version of smoked sockeye salmon. Choose the sturdier salmon that still resembles a fillet, coral and caramelized in color (not the thinly sliced lox typically served on bagels).


  • Cream cheese – 1 (8-ounce) block, softened
  • Plain yogurt or sour cream – 3 tablespoons
  • Green onions or chives – 1/3 cup, finely sliced
  • Hot smokes sockeye salmon – 4 ounces
  • Capers – 1 tablespoon, or more
  • Fresh dill (optional) – 1-2 tablespoons, minced
  • Freshly ground black pepper – 8 turns of the mill


  1. In a medium bowl, use a fork to beat the cream cheese until smooth.
  2. Slowly incorporate the sour cream or yogurt, scraping the sides of the bowl as needed.
  3. Mix in the green onions or chives until evenly incorporated.
  4. Mix in the smoked salmon, capers and freshly ground black pepper.
