This clean eating pecan salmon dip recipe is definitely not a traditional salmon dip. In fact, it’s kinda hard to tell the salmon is really in there. But there’s just enough of a salmony hint to be just about perfect.
The pecans are the prevalent flavor here. And the really crazy thing is that this dip goes really well on apple slices. I know, I know. Salmon and apples is an odd combination, but you’ll have to trust me on this one. However, if you just can’t stomach the idea, try this on cucumbers or clean crackers. Either way, it’s a tasty appetizer.
YOU MIGHT ALSO ENJOY THESE CLEAN EATING RECIPES:
- 6 oz. wild salmon (canned or baked and shredded)
- 5 oz. pecan pieces
- 2 medium lemons (juiced)
- 1/4 cup water + extra 1/4 cup if needed
- 1 tsp. dried parsley
- 1 tsp. dried dill (or to taste)
- salt to taste
- Apples or cucumbers (sliced for dipping)
Put the pecans, lemon juice, water, parsley and dill into a food processor. Blend until smooth. Add more water as needed to achieve a smooth but thick and creamy past. Almost like thick pancake or muffin batter.
Put the nut butter and salmon in a medium mixing bowl and mix to blend. Stir in more dill and salt to taste.
Slice cucumber, apples or even clean bread to enjoy with this.
NOTE: This recipe is very adjustable, which is why I give the ranges. Start at the lower end as you can always add more.
