Samon Spread Recipe

We love BBQ at our house and prior to my gluten allergy diagnosis we used to hang out at Famous Dave’s BBQ. I can’t eat there any longer as they use wheat in their sauces and every dish seems to be contaminated.

I can’t even eat this salmon spread, but it’s a favorite with my other half so I reverse engineered it from the menu and I do make it for him on occasion.

For those of you who can eat dairy, it’s a real treat!

Now that it’s Football season this should be a really great game-day munchy. Let me know what you think!

  1. 8oz. Room temperature cream cheese
  2. Two cups shredded salmon (1 large filet)
  3. 2Tbs. Capers
  4. Cheyenne pepper powder to taste
  5. Salt & pepper
  6. Olive oil
  1. Dress salmon filet with a little olive oil, salt and pepper and bake salmon filet at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
  2. Let the salmon cool and flake with a fork.
  3. Place the room temperature cream cheese in a bowl and mush it with a fork to soften it up.
  4. Add in the flaked salmon and the capers and mix.
  5. Add in the Cheyenne pepper to your desired spiciness...I make it pretty spicy, 3-4 good dashes usually does the trick.
  6. Mix and serve with your desired scoop. Goes great with jicama chips or any veggie stick.

    Hi 🙂 I came across your site as I was looking for Famous Daves Salmon Spread. I am an employee at a Famous Daves, and miss the salmon spread as its been taken off our menu. However, I just wanted to let you know we have gluten free sauces! They are Texas Pit, Georgia Mustard, and the Buffalo Sauce. I am not sure where you live but most FDs have Gluten Free Menus. You can even have baby back ribs if you get them naked 🙂

    Can you tell me if FDs is GMO-free. As you know, China has purchased one of the largest pork producers in the USA – Smithfields. China is also using GMO grain in the feeding of pork. Also note, pork virus from China has reached America and is devastating pork farms.

    Don’t they use smoked salmon? I just assumed so because they’re a BBQ joint.

    Thanks for the recipe.

    I was a GM for Dave’s and remember the recipe, this is not it. Not at all close to it. It’s dry rubbed for 2 hours with a rib rub before its smoked and has a veggie seasoning pack added.
