Nothing fancy and something that people have been eating for breakfast forever but for us it was new. I spied some local smoked salmon (the company was local, the salmon was wild caught) while out shopping and decided to get some to try out.
I love smoked salmon but have only had the traditional thin slices of smoked salmon, the kind that still looks like it’s raw even though it is not.
I enjoy that style a great deal but only can eat so much of it before the texture starts to squick me out.
The new style I bought looked and flaked like regular cooked salmon.
It was delicious! I made a quick little cream cheese spread to go with it, nothing complicated. I mixed some chopped green onion and dried dill with about 4oz of cream cheese.
The filet that I purchased was large and there was no way that we could get through it all. I portioned out the leftovers and stuck them in the freezer for another day.
I’m already dreaming of all the things I can make with this new style of smoked salmon!
Do you enjoy smoked salmon? I know some folks can find it a little over powering in flavor.
