Smoked Salmon Pate

I don't even like smoked salmon but this was good. Easy to make and great taste. Serge Vie brought it in for our Master Gardener class. That's Serge with his pate, me with Carrot Bread pg. 197 and Carol Vie with Cranberry Coffee Cake pg. 199

Smoked Salmon Pate pg. 166

2 (7 ounce) cans smoked salmon, or 1 pound hot smoked salmon
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, melted
1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoon dried dill weed
salt and pepper to taste

Combine the salmon, butter, sour cream, lemon juice, dill weed, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl and beat until combined. Chill, covered, for 8 to 10 hours. Bring to room temperature and garnish with lemon slices. Serve with seasoned crackers. You may store, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
