This is my low carb copy-cat of the Cajun smoked salmon dip you can buy at the grocery store. That stuff contains fake salmon, sugar and a wide variety of unpronounceable ingredients. I'm not sure if my version is any cheaper to make than to buy ready-made, but at least it's legal for a low carb diet. You might be able to stretch the recipe by doubling everything but the salmon or make it as is and only use 2 ounces smoked salmon, since that's the most expensive component of this dip.
