This is a delicious pate you can make out of shop bought smoked salmon. Tastes restaurant quality, and very easy.
This is an excellent appetizer! After experimenting with it twice, I've concluded that I prefer the following modifications: Use 6 oz. cream cheese and leave out the butter. Use an additional tablespoon of cognac and a generous 2 tablespoons of onion. Bump the Worcestershire up to 3/4 tablespoon. Use 2 tablespoons of lemon juice. Add 3/4 teaspoon of Tabasco sauce. Don't skimp on the salt and pepper. Yum! - 14 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
