The most important ingredient in this salmon dip is the salmon. I’m so lucky that my mom is an avid fisherman and often gifts me some of her catch. She also smokes the salmon herself!

I used smoked salmon from last year’s catch from the Kenai River. I’ve only made this recipe using smoked salmon. There are a few different ways that Alaskans like to smoke salmon, here is one way to smoke salmon Alaska-style.

The sriracha ranch dressing is another key ingredient in this recipe. It’s what makes the salmon dip super creamy and delicious. I usually use the Hidden Valley sriracha ranch dressing but they were out of stock so I opted for the Kroger brand instead, which I found at Fred Meyer’s.
