Swedish Smoked Salmon Spread

This is so delicious on crackers, ry-krisps, blinis or bread. I got this from a generous friend in Stockholm (who also introduced me to the wonders of princess cake.)

16 ounces smoked salmon, chopped up finely
3 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
2 ounces thick sour cream
1/2 cup butter
2 Tbsp fresh chives, chopped fine
1 Tbsp fresh dill, chopped fine
4 Tbsp shallots, chopped fine
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
salt
pepper

Bring the butter to room temperature. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix until well-blended. Refrigerate. Before serving, bring to room temperature.
