    This was just ok. I've had much better versions. We thought the fish was sort of overpowered by the condiments. Maybe that's the point, but we happen to enjoy the flavor of smoked salmon.

    I substituted coarse grain mustard for the horseradish. It worked out wonderful.

    This spread is AMAZING. I substitute freshly grated horseradish for the prepared horseradish, and add extra to taste. I've tried it with the prepared horseradish, but I find using fresh gives the spread a firmer texture, which I prefer.
