  • 8 oz salmon
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper
  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 Tablespoon dill weed minced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest


  • Preheat your smoker to 275 degrees F. Season the salmon with the lemon pepper seasoning and place in the smoker. Smoke until the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees F (about 30-45 minutes). Allow the salmon to cool before flaking.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine all ingredients except the salmon. Stir thoroughly. When well combined, gently fold in the flaked salmon. Garnish with the fresh lemon zest and additional dill (if desired) before serving.
  • I recommend serving the smoked salmon dip with crackers, sliced baguettes, and your favorite crunchy vegetables like bell peppers and cucumbers.
