Alaska is known for its salmon, and this is one of our favorite appetizers. I pack the spread and crackers in our picnic lunch when my husband and I head out to harvest wood, which we do several times a year. We look forward to getting wood just to have this special treat!

"I love salmon, but this was far too heavy in salmon taste for an appetizer. Not creamy enough. The sesame seeds added no flavor. I like the concept, but I would reduce the amount of salmon, increase the amount of sour cream, and omit the seeds."
