I made this recipe of Alissa's and oh my gosh, it is so good! Everyone in my house loved it and I ate some and it is so filling. I cannot believe it is raw!
The recipe was so easy, except that I've got a cheapie blender!
Anyways, I just had to share that it was amazing.

Oooh, I'm glad you said that! I'm going to make it tomorrow for the first time...I wanted to test it out before a potluck on Saturday!

Do it, you will love it! I was in shock when I tasted it. It will be a big hit!

I'm so glad you posted this! We're putting together a Raw and Living Food presentation, and I was trying to think of something quick, easy, with only a few ingredients, that I could whip up at the start of class for folks to munch on during the "talk" part of the presentation.
I'll stuff celery with the salmon pate -- perfect!!

That is one of my favorite recipes. Haven't had it for a while because I have been busy making other things from Alissa's book

Did all of you soak the nuts? I wasn't sure..... :)

Actually I've not ever soaked the nuts for this and I do make it a lot. I will be curious to see what others say!
I've been wanting to try this recipe but the name scares me a bit. Just calling something "salmon" makes me shy away from it as I have been vegetarian for most of my life and this kind of thing really grosses me out.
So, does it actually taste or smell similar to salmon? I'm afraid to make it and hate it and have to throw it all out.

OH goodness. There is not an actual "fishy" taste to this. It is fabulous. If you have raw crackers or bread its REALLY good on that too! Great on a salad. Just overall YummY!!!

No fishy taste or smell...........don't know why it's called that- you know it reminds me of a spread that I used to love called Pimento Spread that you could find in the refrigerated section at the grocery store. I was blown away when I made it after reading here that so many people loved it.......even though it did have "fish" connected to the name.....yeeeeewwwwww!!!
Believe me, it's not "seafoody" tasting at all----
Which reminds me of another question -- Could someone describe Nori Rolls and rate their "Fishy" flavor?? I don't want to make them if they have that "bottom of the sea" flavor.

No fish smell or anything like that at all!! I think it's called Mock Salmon Pate becasue of the way it LOOKS!!! ;) It really does look like it.
My friend tried it and could not get past the idea that it indeed tasted like seafood!! LOL
It does not!! Not at all. Look at the ingriedents and there is no way it could taste like it with just that stuff in there.
It is wonderful and my dh loves it as a sandwich and so do my dc! I love it on celery!
Try it, you'll like it. If not, then I'll take it off your hands!! ;)

I even added some dulse, it still didn't give it any fishy flavor, but lots of added nutrients. And my kids love it. And that red pepper alsolutely makes it!
08-17-2005, 02:54 PM
Oh, I wondered about the dulse. I did not have any, but thought it might nice to try it to see if it would add the flavor to it. I love the entire recipe. Worth trying it out!

Could someone post the recipe? I haven't bought Alissa's book yet.
08-17-2005, 03:58 PM
I'm not sure the link to the recipe! Someone posted a link to it and I can't find that link now.
Let me see if I can find it!

The recipe is on Alissa's website:

But, when I made the mock salmon pate, it didn't seem as if it it had too much flavor, and I was wondering if perhaps I should have added more salt? It seemed dry and walnutty...... Any suggestions on giving it more power?
I did eat all of it, though. And, I also was stuffed up when I made it...
Now, when Shari made it for our potluck, it was incredible!!

Sometimes you do have to add more or less of a spice or seasoning, etc. to suit your own tastes. Once I got the hang of making recipes, I almost always tweak things to my liking. Like the marinara sauce for example. I LOVE that sauce! But now, I add other things to it to make it more to my personal tastes (like chopped onions and bell peppers and a lot of basil).
Coming from a background of eating HEAVILY seasoned foods, I tend to have to do some tweaking to just about all savory recipes whether it be omitting something I don't like or adding something I DO like that isn't called for in the recipe. Someone who is used to eating very spicy foods may end up adding lots of cayenne or other peppers to their recipes to suit their tastebuds, etc.

I find it actually tastes better the next day. I made it yesterday, liked it, put the leftovers in the fridge overnight. Ate it again today and loved it. (Also, my mom didn't like it yesterday and she loved it today.)
I don't soak the nuts and I used the lower amount of salt it called for.
