    You can add the listed fiber count to the net carb count to get the total carbs.

    Avocados have loads of good fats, but do have carbs.

    Yes, cream cheese would also work well for this recipe.

    Nutrition info is way off.
    only about 20g protein and closer to 8g net carbs (with mayo) and 10g net carbs (with sour cream)

    Please verify macronutrients for this meal. 58g of protein seems to be about TRIPLE the amount actually present.

    For some reason, this recipe is pulling information for regular salmon and not smoked salmon. I have asked the Recipe Team to review this entry. Thank you!
