8 ounces salmon fillet, skin removed
4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Salt and pepper
1/4 cup finely chopped chives
Assorted crudités


1. Place salmon fillet in pan and just cover with cold water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from pan and cool completely on a plate, about 30 minutes.

2. Place salmon in food processor and pulse briefly. Add cream cheese, butter and lemon juice; puree until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a bowl, cover and chill for 30 minutes. (Can be made to this point the day before.)

3. Spoon pâté into piping bag with star nozzle and pipe onto vegetables or crackers; sprinkle with chopped chives. Or spoon it into a serving bowl and serve with crudités.
