Salmon rillettes is a crazy delicious and rich salmon spread. It combines fresh and smoked salmon, mustard, lemon juice and parsley for a pop of freshness. Slather on crackers and crusty bread!
Use a fork to mash together butter and olive oil in a medium bowl until smooth and no lumps of butter remain. Whisk in mustard and lemon juice. Add 1/2 tsp kosher salt, black pepper and parsley and stir until combined. Discard skin from cooked salmon, then use a fork or your fingers to break the meat into small pieces. Repeat with the smoked salmon. Add all the salmon to the butter mixture and fold in until well combined and the fish is more finely shredded.
Transfer to a glass jar or serving bowl. Cover and chill at least 1 hour and up to 5 days. Bring to room temperature before serving. Serve with crackers and crudités.
