    3 hours 40 minutes

    Salmon, butter, Dijon mustard and fresh tarragon are just some of what make this French-style salmon spread so delicious. Pair it with slices of toasted baguette or crackers for an easy entrée. This can be made up to 1 day ahead. Bring it back to room temperature before serving for best flavour.

    Went with all smoked Salmon. Everyone's reactions got one person that does not like any fish to try it and he had a second crisp. That's a food compliment if their ever was one.  -  12 Jul 2017  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Delicious! I had some leftover grilled salmon and looked for a recipe or spread to use it up. This ended up as an excellent spread and even more flavorful the next day. Easy to make and I minimized the tarragon (used dry) and of course, didn't poach any extra salmon. Looking forward to sharing with my friends and neighbors.  -  12 Jul 2017  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
