Smoked Salmon Platter

Over the weekend I attended a baby shower and they had this awesome smoked salmon platter. The platter it self is so easy but what made it amazing was the salmon! When simple is a key component to an item for a party it must be made with great ingredients. When I asked about what kind of salmon it was I was surprised. The hostess had gone to Whole Foods, picked out a specific piece of salmon, in this case fresh from the Pacific Northwest, and then had them custom smoke it for her. They had it ready for her to pick up the next morning. Pretty cool and so fresh! They paired the salmon with a cream cheese and dill spread, crackers, toastinis and sliced cucumbers. 

Cream Cheese with Dill Spread: My best guess would be 1/2 cup of cream cheese and 3 sprigs of chopped dill mixed together. It was also so simple. 

Another spread I like: 

     Smoked Salmon Spread 
     1 cup whipped cream cheese 
     1 tablespoon capers 
     1/3 cup chopped smoked salmon
     1 sprig of dill chopped 

     Combined all ingredients above and serve cold. Keeps for about a week in the fridge.
