A delicious salmon ball made with horseradish, lemon, cream cheese and chopped nuts. So easy to make at home and tastes incredible. With a fancy feel, this recipe is absolutely perfect for entertaining especially during the festive period.
One of our family Christmas traditions is a "trim-the-tree" party with a dinner buffet.
Our buffet consists of meats and cheeses to make your own sandwich, shrimp, herring, Christmas cookies and spiced tea just to hit the highlights! One of the fancier items, though, is the salmon ball!
As part of the dinner buffet, I always make a salmon ball - year after year. It is one of those appetizers that never grows old. Not only is it extremely easy to make but it looks as though you spent much more time on it than you did!
As you know, if you have been reading for awhile, I have been trying to incorporate more fish into our diet.
After all, fish is brain food and contains lots protein, vitamins B, D and omega 3 fatty acids - it is a nutritional powerhouse!
This salmon ball recipe is one that I might just have to stop saving for the holiday season and begin serving more often. It makes a really simple snack or a fun dish to bring to a potluck!
How To Make A Salmon Ball
- Drain the salmon and separate the bones.

This looks amazing!! Holy moly!!! Thanks for sharing!
What a great find for me! Raine Saunders (Agriculture Society) posted a link from Weed 'em and Reap where I found a link to your blog. I am always on the lookout for new ways to use salmon, not because I'm trying to incorporate more seafood into our diet but because we have a freezer FULL of salmon every year and I want to make sure we eat ALL of it before the next fishing season!
I just have to say though: leave those bones in girl! They are soft and easily smooshed with a fork, barely noticeable in the finished product and loaded with minerals, definitely worth getting over any initial squeamishness for.
This looks delicious. I love salmon. Come and visit us. We are having a wonderful giveaway this week. Something you will just love from a talented Southern writer.

we add a dash or two of liquid smoke also....just adds to the flavor...also we substitute tuna for the salmon....
Cindy, isn't it funny, I never thought to try tuna! I am sure it would be good!
I can honestly say I've never heard of a salmon ball before, but it sounds delicious! Pinning... :)
Raia, it is so easy and delicious - let me know how you like it!
