- 2 - 6 oz. cans of Boneless Skinless Salmon, Drained
- 1 - 8 oz. Package of Cream Cheese - Softened
- 1/2 Cup of Any type of shredded Cheese
- 1/2 Cup of Salad Dressing: Ranch Blue Cheese, Asiago or Chipotle
- Up to 1/2 Cup of Frank's Hot Sauce
- Optional: spices like black pepper or smoked paprika for the top, and fresh parsley, or chives.
- Preheat your oven to 350° Fahrenheit.
- Use olive oil to make your baking dish nonstick, or use nonstick spray and set the dish aside (a 9" pie pan works well for sizing idea)
- While the oven is heating, mix ingredients in a bowl (you can also use a blender)
- Salmon (make sure if you are mixing by hand break up all of the drained pink salmon)
- Then add in the cream cheese, cutting it into the salmon (unless you are using a blender)
- Once this is mixed together well, add in the ranch dressing (or whatever dressing you chose)
- Follow with the shredded cheese (we love using a Monterrey Jack and Colby Jack Mixture)
- Add in your Red Hot Sauce (Frank's) but add it a little at a time, adjusting to your taste because 1/2 C is really gonna blaze, and less may be better if your crew does not like heat so much.
- Transfer the mixed ingredients to your baking dish
- If you want, you can use a pastry brush and add more hot sauce across the top and a 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil (totally optional, it is how we get the color across the top to look different and a bit more of a bite)
- Place in the oven and bake for 25 minutes (the top will get a little light brown if more cheese is on top)
- Remove from the oven, and transfer to a serving dish (be careful this will really be sizzling).
- Create a charcuterie tray experience providing dippable stacked around such as chunks of crusty bread, crostini, bread sticks, pepper strips, cucumbers, zucchini strips, radishes, daikon, etc.
Refrigerate any leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
